This is something I wrote out and saved a few years ago. I posted on the Maddowblog a few times.
I am interested to see what people think on Hannity blog.
J-B-3 NO CASH ARGUMENT
The Government knows that over a million crimes a day are committed through the use of money everyday in America and there is nothing they can do to stop it.
We have laws on the books against these crimes, because We the People, through our elected legislatures, in local, state , and Federal Government, have decided we do not want these things to occur.
If there were a way to eliminate these things from occurring without violating anyone’s Rights, would not everyone be for doing that?
There is a way - eliminating the use of cash, and go to a card and check system only.
Law abiding citizens barely use cash as it is, and do not have to use cash at all, except for a few minor things that can be fixed, such as parking meters and vending machines.
Some of the crimes that can be eliminated or reduced by maybe 90 percent would be (in no particular order) :
1 Working under the table avoiding income taxes
2 Using cash to purchase large amounts of drugs
3 Using cash to purchase small amounts of drugs
4 Street selling of narcotics
5 Street selling of guns
6 Illegal sports betting
7 Money laundering
8 Using illegally obtained money to purchase things
9 Store robbery for money
10 Home robbery for money
11 Mugging for money
12 Selling of stolen property
13 Buying of stolen property
14 Running an illegal non registered business for cash
15 Bribery with cash
16 Blackmail for cash
17 Street prostitution
19 Illegal wealth transfers
20 Illegal immigration
Only legal people will be allowed to open bank accounts and have cards.
People who cannot get a bank account and card, for any reason, will be issued a Government card.
Everything will go on these cards, such as your pay from work, Government assistance, tax refunds, and all purchases.
Every transaction you make in life will be on your card.
There will be no pre-paid cards because there will be no cash.
You can still use all your current bank and debit cards, write checks, use credit cards.
Personal transactions will be done by phone to phone, or you can go to a 7-11, or a bank.
Drug dealers and users will be out of business because that is a cash business. The Government will be able to know if someone is taking in money like that.
