Reality is gambling takes advantage of the poor. Stats have shown this over and over again the rich get richer off the poor. More and more we see this slots machines popping up in small town Americia. The reason for this is because on the norm your average poor or elderly american is not going to travel to casino's.I seen this happen first hand in West Virginia.I worried about the Bangor area when I seen the slots there I wondered how long before you would see small place's opening with the limit of 5 slot machines on every block. We allowe the dog tracks to have them here and before we knew what happen tiny casinos were everywhere. And they draw in the poor and elderly more then the wealthly.Don't let Maine take advantage of the elderly and poor stop this in the tracks now before it get started.
