• US Online Act (IGREA) Gets PRESIDENTIAL Endorsement

    10 August 2007


    Supporters of Barney Frank’s “Internet Gambling Regulation and Enforcement Act ” gets important commentary endorsement.

    Games and Casino’s very reliable resources tell us that this could be a major help in the IGREA and iMEGA getting the response needed to halt the UIGEA.

    Ron Paul a candidate for the Republican nomination in the 2008 Presidential election stated “The Internet should not be regulated and that he fully supports the Barney Frank IGREA (Internet Gambling Regulation and Enforcement Act.”

    Ron Paul is not a stranger to controversy having called for American troops to immediately leave
    Iraq. And the abolishment of the Internal Revenue Service and Federal Income Tax as well as voting against the USA Patriot Act.

    The ten-term Texas Congressman said that he agreed to co-sponsor IGREA with Frank, a member of the rival Democrat Party, legalizing online gambling because he does not believe the Government should be involved in regulating the Internet. IGREA would modify the existing Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) by providing a provision for licensing of Internet gambling facilities by the Director of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.

    Ron Paul said “I believe strongly that the Internet should not be regulated by the Federal Government and I also believe even more strongly that people should be free to engage in the activities they wish as long as they are willing to take responsibility for their actions.”

    Paul also said “Support for IGREA (Barney Frank’s Bill) is dependent on the public’s opinion of the Internet itself.”

    It was also quoted “The majority of people in
    Washington are afraid to support the Internet in fear of being labeled “pro-porn” or “pro-gambling.”

    Since Adam Schiff’s announcement that he is to sponsor Barney Frank’s bill, a lot more are beginning to follow. The total number as of today is 35 co-sponsors with that number expecting to rise extremely before September 4.  Which is when iMEGA will be in the court in
    New Jersey.
