US out of WTO - unlikely
as a sentiment without rational thought, this is absurd and unworkable. most of the products sold in the US are now made elsewhere, largely thanks to the WTO.
WTO procedures are fairly straightforward and transparent (as opposed to, say, ICANN), so this is certainly a "lesser evil" situation. The WTO would otherwise be replaced with an insane patchwork of complex and contradictory trade treaties between individual countries (usually opaque, questionable back-room deals with little or no oversight). that precarious arrangement would then be actively exploited for its flaws, or evaded entirely through the smuggling that would explode in response to such labyrinthine regulatory arrangements (with a concurrent rise in corruption, crime and money laundering).
US-based manufacturing that is also domestically owned, is almost dead; it just hasn't stopped twitching yet. China got most of it, but there's plenty all over the world. if the US were to withdraw from the WTO, its economy would simply fall apart. modern industrial mass production is expensive and complex (not to mention the supply chain arrangements required to feed it), and can not be restarted overnight. very little domestic production remains (and foreign companies like Toyota and Honda own more of what's left every day).
where gambling is concerned, Mr. Abramoff (or persons like him) did an amazing job creating this dispute situation. i wonder who the US gambling industry has bought at the DOJ. must be pretty high-level, to be so effective.
if people want to gamble, let them (they'll find a way to do it anyway). what we have now is protectionism, not prohibition. if you'd like proof, consider lotteries, Nevada (Las Vegas, etc.), New Jersey (Atlantic City), the closest navigable river (riverboat casinos), your local Turf Club, or a nearby American-Indian reservation (more often than not), not to mention online wagers (legal and otherwise) and the office pool.
i live an hour away from Detroit, and it's full of gambling joints (domestic auto manufacturing doesn't pay the bills any more, you see). They're popular, too, even on weekdays.
if one must go online to gamble, and gets ripped off through international credit card fraud, i can only laugh. with all the options available here, one hardly needs facilities in other countries, but if people demand access to this, i say we should let them have it.
