Yes. Government has no place picking winners and losers.  if you had even a basic Economics education, you might realize this too. Unless, of course, you turned out to be a Keynesian.

Your point would apply in basic economics but this isn't basic economics.  The gambling market is highly regulated and controlled by the government.  Once they introduced slots to the track owners, they crippled horse racing.  Still today they control what kind of games they can offer when stand a lone casinos are allowed to be vegas style casinos.

Wait a second, harness racing was thriving before slots were introduced? Give me a fucking break. In PA, for instance, casino gambling was advertised as a way to save horse racing.  73cv.2

And yes, I agree that gambling itself its not a situation that would conform to the laws of the efficient market hypothesis. That said, the notion that an industry must be saved because competition harmed it is utterly idiotic. If a superior product is introduced, and another one goes by the wayside, them the breaks. Do you also support a Universal Basic Income? I've skimmed your past posts and you come off as a Trumptard so I'm going to put you down as a 'no' for UBI.

That wasn't what i stated but I guess you missed the point.  Its not free market!   Racing was thriving before the government allowed casinos everywhere and then didnt let them have the same kind of games the casinos had and have.
