Folks, please remember that getting rid of cash is about one thing and one thing only. Government control. Combating crime and terror are excuses. Government and big business want to know every detail about what we do with our money. And, they can just print and print (or, electronically create) money as much as they want. This is a huge problem and why we need to resist and prepare. Precious metals and commodities (physical things you can own and trade) are very important for this reason.
