Take Action to OPPOSE: Daily Fantasy Sports Gambling

Screen Shot 2018-04-14 at 11.43.29 AM.png

Urge your Representative to oppose HF 1415, legislation that would create a legal framework to legitimize the gambling in Minnesota

The bill is based on a legal fiction – that daily fantasy sports gambling isn’t really gambling. Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) betting is gambling because it includes the three essential elements of gambling:  consideration, prize, and chance. Daily Fantasy Sports is not the same thing as season-long fantasy sports, but the gambling industry wants consumers to believe that it is. 

Gambling is a predatory business practice because it ensures a lot of gamblers will lose money.  It intentionally creates that outcome.  It’s predatory because it preys on the unsuspecting, the poor and those with gambling addictions.

Commercial sports gambling is a predatory business that results in economic and social harms to society, families, and individuals. Dangerous practices should not be legalized just so the state can earn money off of them. Gambling targets vulnerable populations including youth, individuals with gambling addictions, and low-income households. Let’s not profit off of them.

Support Display of National Motto!

Our national motto, “In God We Trust” reflects the rich cultural heritage of religion in our society and historic role of religious liberty that was so prominent in our nation’s founding. The motto is displayed throughout the country on government buildings and monuments, in official seals, state chambers, and county offices. It is printed on currency and license plates. It is appropriate, therefore, for our nation’s motto to be displayed in Minnesota public school buildings. Our national motto echoes the principle found in the Declaration of Independence that our freedoms come from God and not the state. Our nation’s history acknowledges religious belief in the public sector.
