There is a movement in the United States towards a “Cashless Society”.
“That day will never come” you might be thinking to yourself. After all, it is written on all Federal Reserve notes (paper money) that “This note is legal tender for all debts, public and private”. The US currency will always be accepted….. right?
The answer is NO!
In fact, it is illegal in Louisiana to use cash to purchase junk, used or second hand property including Gold, Silver and other precious metals.
Its hard to believe that it could be illegal to go to a garage sale and use the cash you have in your pocket, but it is! Instead, you have to pay for that used vase with a check or credit card.
I am afraid that this is only the beginning of the move towards a cashless society where the government can track your every purchase and, as a result, your every movement and activity.
