Rebuttal to Argument in Favor of Proposition 5
Arguments on this page are the opinions of the authors and have not been checked for accuracy by any official agency.
The proponents of Proposition 5 are playing to your emotions to pass their flawed initiative. Rather than discuss the SPECIFICS of their proposal, they are raising phony strawmen issues like Nevada casinos. Here are the facts:

Most Californians want to help Native Americans become self-sufficient. However, less than 15% of California Indians will receive benefits from this initiative. Proposition 5 is a GRAB FOR ADVANTAGE by a few wealthy Indian tribes at the expense of all Californians.

That's why an extremely broad-based coalition of groups--Business, Labor, Seniors, Educators, Law Enforcement, Environmental, Local Government-- oppose Proposition 5. UNREGULATED, UNTAXED, and UNLIMITED casinos are UNFAIR to California. Please Vote NO!
