The right to a secret ballot is essential to all citizens of this country when voting on anything from elected officials to union organization to increased taxes. It allows people to express their views without having to worry about peer pressure and retaliation. If this bill passes in Congress this is another example of once again losing individual freedom.

To date, all of the proposals for casino gambling have been perceived as only a benefit to a particular area of the state or designated for purposes that can be too easily diverted for politcal/personal gain. If the correct casino legislation was introduced it would pass. Let each county vote to permit casino gambling and have control and I assure you, there would be casino gambling in OHIO.
