Boycott your state's lottery

DCblogger's picture

I have been searching for a club for the 99%, and I think I have found it in state lotteries. Lotteries suck money out of poor neighborhoods. Most of the money goes to the winners and the companies that run the lotteries, states receieve something like only a third of the money spent on lotteries. The vast majority ot the tickets are purchased by the poor. Therefore a lottery boycott would be an excellent anti-austierity tool. The people of Detroit could boycott the Michigan lottery until the austerity measures are ended. The people of DC could boycott the lottery until the school closings are ended, and so on.

I am just a lazy blogger, so I don't really know how to get this show on the road, but I am sure it would work.
