We should stop printing one-dollar bills. Coins that are substantially larger than quarters are what we need so we can easily tell them apart. The savings to taxpayers on printing costs demands we do this.
The penny has evaporated into insignificance even among the poorest of Americans. They have become inconvenient refuse. They break our vacuum cleaners as they clutter our lives. It takes two cents to manufacture the worthless penny. We need them out of our lives.
The one hundred dollar bill needs to be supplemented by returning the five hundred dollar bill to circulation. We will be saving a bundle on printing the one hundred dollar notes because people will be using the larger bill more often. Part of the printing cost saved can be spent on better anti-counterfeiting measures for the bigger bills.
The failed Drug War is what’s prevented larger denomination notes. Big Brother wants to detect large amounts of currency easier. The larger denomination bills would enable drug dealers to better hide their cash. The Drug War was lost long ago and the world morgues have been over-flowing as a result of the related violence. The loss of privacy, liberty and lives through violence has cost America far more than the drugs themselves. Of course despite billions wasted on the Drug War we still have more illicit drugs on our streets than ever.
Far too many of those fascist bastards running our government want to eliminate cash. They want to eliminate any and all privacy with government issued debit smart cards. They want every American’s purchases, locations and amounts spent tracked. That fits right in with airport cavity searches and regular warrantless home searches by bucket helmeted, boot wearing and armed government thugs. I for one will never adapt to that tyranny and will die fighting it first.
