@twobitidiot @blknoiz06 @standwithcrypto Ryan, there’s clearly some mistake here. Mike Rogers is an architect of the surveillance state and also terrible on crypto (he earned a “?” on the scorecard—and even that’s way too generous given his horrible record), while I’ve been relentlessly focused on decentralizing money. x.com/justinamash/st…

A digital currency administered by a massive central government is one of the most dangerous developments in history. Finance must be decoupled from the state and decentralized. When the state can turn off your ability to transact with a switch, it controls your whole existence.

We must prevent adoption of a central bank digital currency but then also take the next step of denationalizing money. Bitcoin is the most promising money innovation in our lifetime. We need a wall of separation between money and state. Click here to help: secure.justinamash.com/donate?source_…

Mandatory E-Verify is yet another tool for the federal government to control you, being sold to you as a security measure. E-Verify is laying the foundation for national biometric databases, CBDCs, and a social credit system, giving the state almost absolute power over your life.

@EthanAGreene @AndrewFmOregon I understand the impetus, but I think it risks further centralizing Congress. The more members, the more likely they will defer to party leaders. The expansion would have to be combined with additional constitutional protections to create a more decentralized legislative body.

A central bank digital currency is an instrument of tyranny. No government can resist the impulse to “correct” your divergent thinking or behavior when it has such a potent and convenient economic weapon to compel your compliance. Decentralize money and reject the digital dollar.

As speaker, I would decentralize the House of Representatives. Outcomes must never be dictated from the top. The speaker’s primary role is to ensure a fair, open, deliberative process that allows members of the House to *discover* outcomes by voting on ideas from the whole body.

When the Federal Reserve rapidly adds trillions of dollars to its balance sheet to cover trillions of dollars in government spending, don’t be surprised when prices go up. If you want to end serious and persistent inflation, then you have to end the Fed. Decentralize finance.

You can’t marry centralized writing of complex legislation (congressional leaders) to decentralized voting on that legislation (rank-and-file members). The result will be a bill that’s highly unrepresentative and takes an eternity to pass. You must decentralize the whole process.

People ask how a decentralized Congress would work. It’s simple: You put a bill on the floor, open it up for amendments, and accept the outcome. If you think this doesn’t work, it’s likely because you have a *particular* outcome in mind. You must accept a representative outcome.
