Protect Your Freedom & Finances from Biden’s Digital Dollar

Your privacy and financial freedom were attacked last year when the government launched their Digital Dollar program — and became one step closer to obtaining total control of your savings. Here’s what a digital dollar can mean to you:

  • Cash is over — Everything will need to be bought and sold electronically.
  • Privacy is over —  All transactions will go through the government. They would know exactly how much you spend and on what.
  • Freedom is over — If you support the wrong cause, you can be penalized, or simply lose all your funds with the click of a button.
  • Retirement funds are over — They could force you to spend your savings to pump up the economy by applying negative interest rates.
