Death by 1,000 Cuts: The Collective Killing of the UIGE

October 21st, 2012  :  Written by Patriot #1

There is no ’1′ solution to reversing the un-American UIGE Act, but collectively there are many ways to kill it. And that is exactly how this underhanded deal will be reversed – by the simple work of everyone. Poker Patriots supports all efforts to bring about the reversal and death of the un-American UIGE Act.

So far the Pro-American Poker movement is made up of:

American Poker is the Big Tent

This is a pretty big tent. And it’s getting bigger by the day.

Your voice is your most powerful weapon in this fight. Talk poker. Play poker.

We support American Poker, its legacy and tradition. Poker is America.

ACTION : Congressmen and Senators On the Record

October 10th, 2012  :  Written by Patriot #1

As the Mid-Term Election Day of November 7th draws near, it’s time to put the candidates on the record.

Poker Patriots everywhere, here is the duty – get your candidate to state, on the record:

I fully support American Poker in all its forms: Yes or No

I will reverse the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act: Yes or No

I will work to legitimize the Great American Game of Poker online: Yes or No

Let’s post, online and for the record, the poker position of every candidate in the country.

Call your candidate’s office. Go to the rally. Email their website. Write letters. Do whatever it takes to get them on the record, clearly stating their position on American Poker. Not sure who or where your candidate is? Start with the New York Times Election Guide. It’s always up to date. Then google your candidate, find their election office, and start demanding answers.

The Poker Players Alliance has a very cool resource tool as well.

We will not allow another double-dealing hypocritter into our government. We will put them on the record and hold them to their word.

Stephen Noh : Poker Patriot

October 5th, 2012  :  Written by Patriot #1

People playing poker

Thanks to Stephen Noh and the fine folks at Poker News for the action-oriented article on “What You Can Do to Support Online Poker”.

As he points out:

  • According to a recent poll by ABC News, the vast majority of Americans do not feel a ban on online gaming is necessary
  • There is very strong evidence showing that poker is a game of skill and should be given an exemption separating it from other forms of gambling
  • Placing restrictions on online poker, rather than stopping it, will probably just drive it underground
  • Estimates have shown that if Congress were to regulate rather than restrict online poker, it could generate up to $3.3 billion for the federal government

His suggestion – write a letter to your candidate. Use the Poker Players Alliance Tool to help find your candidate and construct a letter.

Fantastic work Stephen, Poker News and Poker Players Alliance. The movement to overturn the underhanded UIGE Act keeps building.

Because Poker is America.
