Bitcoin is a tool for freedom and will therefore be opposed by any of the statists, communists, socialists, crony-capitalists, fascists – in short any type of authoritarians – who want to monitor and control you. Anyone with a vested interest in the hidden tax on the poor and middle class through inflation will oppose bitcoin. Anyone who doesn’t believe in freedom of movement will oppose bitcoin because it helps people be free to change geographic locations.
The power-hungry politicians and their lap dogs in the press will oppose bitcoin because it threatens them and returns power to the people.

Matthews talked about putting the birth certificate controversy surrounding President Obama to rest:
“Why has the president himself not demanded they put out the original documents?” Matthews wonders.
“If it exists, why not put it out?” Chris Matthews asks.
None can love freedom heartily, but good men; the rest love not freedom, but license. — John Milton
Money is a tool. The problem occurs when the government is everywhere, then politics is everywhere. When politics is everywhere, the fight for political power becomes crucial. With no limits on their power, politicians in Washington become power-hungry. The Founders understood this which was why the created a government of limited, enumerated powers. Once the concept of enumerated powers was lost, freedom began down the long road of decline.
When politics and government are everywhere instead of individuals making their own decisions based in their freedom to do so, the freedom of the individual is lost. Every election becomes about someone wanting to control someone else. Every election will be more polarized than the last because many people do not want someone else making their decisions for them. Polarization is good when one side wants to control and the other side wants freedom. Compromise with your destroyers still results in you being destroyed, just slower than out-right surrender.
In short, MONEY is NOT the great corrupter of “American democracy,” but merely a symptom. The great corrupter of the American constitutional republic is government ignoring its Constitutional bounds which allows power-hungry politicians the opening they need to take as much power as they can.
