I actually kinda/sorta agree with this.  I don't like gambling.  I don't like the Something-for-Nothing philosophy gambling sponsors.  

I don't like the fact the only viable economic activity the nations can do is run casinos.  

On the other hand there is no question the best jobs on the res are associated with the casinos.  And the profits from the casino fund housing, health care, education, cultural activities, and so on.  And the taxes casinos pay into the state are a big part of the income of the state; New Mexico simply can't afford to do away with casinos.
