    sorry goldira; we seldom get new member/first posts here which aren't spam.
    Welcome! Tell a bit about yourself if you'd like. For example, are you properly anti-semitic like us? Where are u on the holohoax?

    Congressman wants to ban bitcoin because it threatens Federal Reserve

    A US Congressman wants to ban Bitcoin for threatening the Federal Reserve

    A US Congressman, Brad Sherman, is worried that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies will threaten US foreign policy, tax collection, and traditional law enforcement.

    So his solution is to ban it.

    Last week he urged his colleagues to make it illegal to mine, sell, or use Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in the United States.

    The problem, he says, is that the US currently gains much of its power from the fact that most international money moves in US dollars, through the Federal Reserve.

    “It is the announced purpose of the supporters of cryptocurrency to take that power away from us… the advantage of crypto over sovereign currency is solely to aid in the disempowerment of the United States and the rule of law."

    His version of “rule of law” includes things like civil asset forfeiture, just straight up stealing cash from people without even charging them with a crime.

    So yes, if that is the type of “traditional law enforcement” Congressman Sherman fears will be undermined, he is correct.

    And since US foreign policy involves funding endless wars with an inflationary fiat currency… well, he’s right again.

    The aim of cryptocurrency is to hand the power of the purse back to the people.

    Which is why it is comical that he thinks the cryptocurrency movement even could be nipped in the bud if they tried
