Biden’s big plan just got busted by Ron DeSantis.
He wanted to seize control of the entire U.S. economy with one policy.
But Ron DeSantis made one move to thwart his agenda, and now Biden is furious.
One of the key policies that the Left is pursuing to try to control the economy and enact a Chinese-style “social credit” system is a Central Bank Digital Currency, referred to as a CBDC.
This would be a monetary system that is entirely controlled and monitored by the federal government, and could be shut off at any time for any reason.
Of course the federal government controls the monetary system now as well, but it is much harder for them to track and monitor.
Private banks hold people’s money in checking and savings accounts, and this money can be withdrawn at any time. There is little the government can do to prevent you from spending your money, short of filing charges against you and taking you to court.
With a Central Bank Digital Currency, however, the government could simply click a button and freeze your money at any time, just like Justin Trudeau did to the truck protesters in Canada.
That’s why Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is taking action now to stop this authoritarian disaster from ever taking place.
According to CoinDesk, “A legislative proposal from Florida Gov. (and possible Republican U.S. presidential candidate) Ron DeSantis would prohibit the use of a national central bank digital currency (CBDC) as money within his state.”
“The proposed law would also prohibit in Florida the use of a CBDC issued by any overseas central bank. The governor’s statement calls on other states to adopt similar legislation.”
DeSantis made it clear that the purpose of this legislation is to protect the people of his state from government surveillance efforts targeted at them.
In a statement to the press, DeSantis said, “Today’s announcement will protect Florida consumers and businesses from the reckless adoption of a ‘centralized digital dollar’ which will stifle innovation and promote government-sanctioned surveillance.”
Joe Biden and the Democrats are making this a high priority, and for very specific reasons. They want to use the power of the government to punish American citizens for taking actions that they don’t like, such as not getting vaccinated or supporting Republicans.
The article continues, “President Joe Biden last year issued an executive order for the federal government to study the possible uses and risks of a CBDC.”
“In addition to privacy concerns, DeSantis said a federal CBDC would diminish the role of community banks and credit unions.”
This catastrophe of a proposal by the Democrats really hits all of their agenda items one by one: hurting small businesses, surveilling American citizens, instituting a social credit system, and destroying the Constitution.
They are counting on Americans to be too distracted by the political drama of today while they sneak this through in the dead of night.
But Ron DeSantis is stepping up and making sure that doesn’t happen. He is showing the kind of leadership that will be necessary to finally take down Joe Biden.
