Tim Giago: Bush probably still against Indian gaming

"When all is said and done we must consider the issue of moral values as spelled out by the George W. Bush victory in the past elections. Bush was against Indian gaming in Texas and is probably still against it as President of the United States. There are forces, powerful Christian forces, gathering on the horizon that are diametrically opposed to gambling of any nature.

The Indian nations of America would be fools not to realize that these forces pose a threat to their casinos and mark my words, these forces will come to the forefront over the next four years.

Indian nations should be aware that what the federal government has given, the federal government can take away. The pressure exerted upon it moves the government and the pressure against gambling in America is about to grow fearsome."
