Recently a new bill was introduced on the floor of the US Senate entitled, pleasantly,
“Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017.”
You can probably already guess its contents.
Cash is evil.
Bitcoin is evil.
Now they’ve gone so far to include prepaid mobile phones, retail gift vouchers, or even electronic coupons. Evil, evil, and evil.
All with new powers of civil forfeiture against not only the “evil” money you may be “hiding” but the power to seize all your assets. Add in some criminal penalties and we have the makings of a regime that would make the Soviet Union look like a Libertarian Utopia. This is where the USSA is going.
Get out while you still can. It is going to get a lot worse.
