This is an opinion editorial by Robert Hall, a content creator and small business owner.
The race for the 2024 US presidential election has begun, with some of the same cast of characters from the past few elections. On the Democratic side, you have Joe Biden, Robert F. Kennedy and Marianne Williamson suggesting they run. Then, Former President Donald Trump, Nikki Haley, Ron DeSantis and Vivek Ramaswamy were on the other side of the aisle.
If you’ve been following the race so far, you may know that Trump seems to be walking away from the nomination before the process begins next year. If he gets nominated, we’ll probably get another one in 2020, where we’ll have two men over 70 years old who both think they know what’s right for the country. Who else is tired of having baby boomers running the show? I am, honestly.
Boomer Presidents Don’t Understand Bitcoin
Baby boomers, you are in their time of day. It is time to leave the stage and let the younger generation of leaders have a chance to lead the country. We need leaders who understand the evolving challenges facing America as we speak.
We need leaders who fully understand economic policy and the value of innovation in the financial space. For example, baby boomers at the top of the ticket do not have the depth or capacity to understand the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that Bitcoin presents to America and the American people.
Biden and Trump are openly against Bitcoin because they believe in the supremacy of the fiat dollar system. Now is the time to elect someone with a bold vision for the future, who understands that the way the rights systems are set up and the role of the dollar in the world is unsustainable in the long term.
If America stays on its current path, it will only lead to chaos, lawlessness, and a lower standard of living for everyone. Is this the future you want for your children and grandchildren? 2024 is our chance to start a new journey towards freedom, the rule of law and the chance to make something of yourself, regardless of your situation in life.
Why We Need A Bitcoiner As President
It was reported recently that Miami mayor Francis Suarez is close to deciding whether he will run for president next year. For those who don’t know him, he is one of the most pro-Bitcoin politicians in the country. He is actively courting Bitcoiners to come to Miami and help make it the Bitcoin capital of the world. So far, he has succeeded in doing that.
But in addition to making the US an epicenter for Bitcoin innovation, having a Bitcoiner like Suarez as president will, critically, stop the emergence of a central bank digital currency (CBDC) in America dead in his tracks. If either Biden or Trump is elected, it is almost certain that some form of CBDC will be activated in America. With the deployment of a CBDC, you can kiss your financial freedom goodbye. You can kiss your privacy goodbye.
You no longer have autonomy over what you eat or how far you can travel. You will have a social credit score, as implemented in China. Is this the kind of life you want? We must strive for a better life.
Recently, the rails for a CBDC were introduced to the public. FedNow, as it is called, will be available in July 2023. It is said that it will be used to facilitate payments between customers and businesses, which will be accurate at the moment. However, as with any system, it is likely to become something very different than what it was intended to be.
Can we really trust a government that has given us the Patriot Act, PRISM and now the proposed RESTRICT Act to prevent total control over how you spend your money?
The RESTRICT Act, for example, released by none other than Bitcoin-hating Senator Elizabeth Warren, has the potential to harm Bitcoiners in the United States with overly broad language regarding digital communication tools. which is a threat to national security. While the obvious target may be TikTok, there is nothing stopping regulators from using this law against Bitcoin in the future.
Looking past this smokescreen, you can see that they are building their case to the public: Hilary Clinton, international regulators and the US Treasury have all warned about the dangers of cryptocurrency.
Now, put this in the context of $31 trillion in US national debt, unsustainable entitlement spending, a world slowly moving away from the dollar, high gas prices and unstoppable inflation. Then it becomes clear that they will close the exits of Bitcoin before most people learn how to use it. They want to lure the masses into a CBDC for a “good reset” of the monetary system. This will come if we don’t start electing people who understand that Bitcoin is our last chance to escape a sinking ship.
Mayor Saurez got it, and if there are other politicians in America who understand Bitcoin, it’s time we support them and get more Bitcoiners into office. The dollar is the Titanic, and Bitcoin is the lifeboat. Will enough people come to be saved? Time will tell and the upcoming presidential election will be a last chance.
