What if wanted to run your own lottery? If you thought that you could make money from running your own lottery and wanted that to be your full time job, could you? NO! The government has a monopoly on that in this country. Should they? Some people would say yes, because they can monitor and control payout, make sure that people that pay in, knows that somebody will win. I don't know if you could be that trusting of an individual, but why isn't up to you to decide if you play or not with whoever?
This question came up today and would like to hear from people their thoughts on this.
