Big Government Republicans and Internet Gambling

Internet gambling is not an issue I particularly care about (I have less of a "gambling problem" than a "parting-with-my-money problem"). Nonetheless, assuming there are basic protections in place to keep out the kids and the mob, I don't see why the government should particularly care about it either. More importantly, if you proclaim you are the party of small government, I really don't understand why you would go out of your way to put a federal ban on Internet gambling into a port security bill, like Senator Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) has done.

Where's the small government? Where's the states' rights? Where's the "freedom" and "liberty" part of the Republican Party today?

Barry Goldwater must be spinning in his grave.
