I don’t know about you, but I still use cash wherever I go.
It’s private. It doesn’t leave a trail attached to my name. It can’t be hacked by some kid in a basement.
But according to the highest court in the land, that makes me suspicious.
You see, the Supreme Court has ruled that carrying cash is strong evidence of a link to drug trafficking.
Look, I’m not a drug trafficker or a terrorist. I just like paying with cash. Is that so suspicious?
Well, according to the Supreme Court, YES.
If I’m pulled over by the feds and I’ve got more than $1,000 in my car, they are legally allowed to confiscate it.
No questions, no arrest. They just take it to investigate. It’s called “civil forfeiture” and it’s 100% legal.
It sounds ludicrous, I know. But the government uses this legal process to steal more money from US citizens than burglars do.
By that logic, we should be more scared of law officers than robbers.
Next time you see flashing blue lights, ask yourself, are you carrying cash? If the answer is “yes,” you should be very worried.
