If a casino could lose money, you'd either have only small, locals casinos, or none at all. Votes are rarely referendums on ethics.

In this case we'd (and by we, I mean Nevada residents) compare two scenarios: a world without the big Vegas casinos (and their tax revenue, their employees, the good stuff), or a somewhat rigged world with the casinos.

What a defeated view. Hopefully one day those Nevada residents may see a horizon beyond the sprawling parking lot of a casino.

If there is an industry that can profitably offer better jobs/economic incentives to Nevada, then I think you would see that industry gain power and relatively weaken the grip of the casinos on Nevada.

So maybe in 5 years we'll be complaining about how Nevada residents can't see beyond 'rigged' tech jobs that don't pay as much as the Bay Area...
