If I would place this debate under a IMAGE, I would show a Image of a " pair of loaded dice, " because I feel that the Illinois Lottery isn't a game of chance but just another way of exacting money for the government from the working class citizens or "retribution, " Another issue with this Illinois Lottery is that very seldom does any one from the state of Illinois ever wins this " lottery game of Chance, " but selected states, Like New York, And California, Mysteriously seem to come up with winners. Perhaps this Illinois Lottery is just another way of extracting a hidden tax, But whatever this " so-called, " Game of Chance, " is one in which Illinois citizens lose.

Can you cite any actual evidence that the lottery is rigged or is this just an opinion? Of course the odds are slim to none that you'll win, But that't the nature of the game.

The Illinois lottery is a game ran by the political hierarchy who's sole purpose is to drain money from the working poor and to provide money for them and their well connected friends One has to ask themselves if there ever was a game of chance, So-called, Where the adds weren't set in favor of the house?
" There's a sucker born every minute" is a phrase closely associated with P. T. Barnum, An American showman of the mid-19th century" and the political elite who put together the Illinois Lottery were well aware of this fact and knew all that they had to do was dangle the possibility of winning big money would draw like a bug is drawn to a light at night. Who then are the real winners, The ones who put their money away instead of throwing it away on a game of little, To none, Chance of winning.

Part #2 The Illinois Lottery is a State Ran game, Controlled and ran by democrats.
In your response to my argument you replied, . . . . " As for the part about California, And New York winning the lottery all the time, That's because they have a huge majority of people compared to Illinois. . . " In this answer to my statement about the Illinois lottery being a rigged game in which the citizens can't win playing the game you perhaps also verified the truth of my supposition that Its not unreasonable to think that the democrat party would want to pander to states which also had the larger portion of democrat voters in them.

Thank you for your taking the time to give your opinion of the Illinois lottery, Whether its a loaded game that Illinois Citizen can't win by playing the game.
In your rebuttal you posted the following: "It's a lottery, The company doesn't go around looking at a list of people and picking there favorite citizens. . . . "
Sotheseedsofliberty2: The Illinois lottery officials who run the game are no doubt representative of a particular Political party. The three states, Illinois, California, And New York, Are also dominated and controlled by the democrat Party. As an example of democrat state control, Springfield Illinois is dominated by the democrat party. The Former President Barack Obama came from the city of Chicago, Illinois and Hillary Clinton, The former First lady, Senator from New York, And former Secretary of state, Came from Illinois as well. To suggest that 3 states dominated by democrat political activists couldn't favor other states predominately of the democrat party wouldn't seem to be too much of a stretch to imagine.
