Or America where the law does not want you to spend your money

Gambling is legal in quite a few places in America.

I was more thinking about the protectionist measures implemented
to make offshore gambling sites inaccessible to US users and the
tactics of the administration arresting directors of legitimate

Would you give some examples of what you are talking about.
I may live in Alaska, but we are not that out of touch, I really have not
heard of anything close to what you describe.

Security of the individual against the state seems to be low
on the agenda these days in the US.

And again I have seen nothing in the US to verify your above statement.
