As the 2012 US elections are happening, political parties are either taking stances on voter issues or avoiding them completely for fear they might lose voters.
One issue that doesn't seem too risky has been online gambling and recently the Republican party (GOP) has recently stated they want to ban online gambling as a means to preserve family values.
What would a ban on online gambling accomplish?
Probably not much and if anything it would certainly get in the way of trying to make online gambling legal in some form in order to charge for licensing fees and to collect more taxable income that is currently leaving the US.
