    United States vs other Countries

    Other countries don't seem to care about online poker. Their government is letting them play poker without any harrassment of online poker ban and laws. Why is the US the only country wanting to ban online poker. I think because their selfish and greedy.

    No because you see lots of people in poverty. they dont want the people to go in debt or lose their family and house over gambling.

    Oh please don't give me the option to choose what's right for me. I don't think I could make adult decisions. Please don't let me decide what to do with what I've earned. Please just tax the devil out of me and use it to pay gov't backed already rich corporations that pay there workers the bare minimum and while your at it fund some govn't propped up monopolies. Btw, there are quite a few countries that restrict gambling. Most of them are communisms.

    You can't really protect the people from their selves in a free society. Irresponsible people will find ways to end up in poverty w/o needing gambling as the vice to avoid. Haven't we had enough of government protecting us against ourselves for our own good a.k.a. nanny state?
    Until poker sites can guarantee that no US citizens that play there can dodge paying taxes on their winnings those sites will not be allowed to accept US players.
    The govt. could care less about Joe six pack going broke. It's all about the money they might be missing out on.

    Which is exactly why they took down the biggest "poker only" sites. And left 100s of "poker and casino" and "casino only" sites. There's no money in protecting the citizens. There was money in attacking the large companies. Rest assure the sites that where most concerened with encryption, safe banking and accounts, good software, and fighting hacking (to protect it's players which are its income) where the ones the US gov't took down.
