To the Editor:
I should have the right to choose whether I want to gamble or not (I do not). I should not have my freedom to choose what I might want to reasonably do in my personal daily life limited by legislated morality.
Just as I should have the right to choose whether I want to gamble or not, the anti-gambling faction should have, and currently does have, the same choice.
The anti-gambling faction should, recognizing that this is America, simply choose to not gamble. They are equally free to proselytize their anti-gambling morality wherever they are legally free to do so, which as I understand it, is virtually everywhere. But to create a law to enforce their own perspective of morality is just plain the wrong thing to do.
I will be voting against the initiative, as I believe in retaining the personal freedoms of choice that we have in America.
