Minton also argued that supporting legalization is good politics. "Overturning the ban on Internet gambling is the right thing to do and beneficial for all political parties," Minton said.

For Republicans, overturning a ban on voluntary online wagering will limit government bloat, allow individuals to exercise personal responsibility, and could result in a massive influx of revenue that could be leveraged into tax reductions. Moreover, politicians who support overturning the ban can demonstrate to voters that they are living up to campaign promises and staying true to the ideals that got them into office."
