DeSantis Announces Florida Ban on Government-Backed Digital Currencies

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was one of the few politicians of either party who stood up to the draconian COVID lockdowns.

He kept the state of Florida mostly open during the pandemic. DeSantis served as a rare beacon of liberty during the lies and treachery of Dr. Fauci and the Biden regime.

Now, DeSantis is widely expected to announce a run for president, but in the meantime, he continues to take the lead on important issues affecting the nation.

His latest move is to announce there will not be a CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency) permitted in the state of Florida.

No Big Brother Dollar in the Sunshine State

Announcing the move at a press conference, DeSantis said a CBDC backed by the Federal Reserve must be resisted. These kinds of currencies have already been rolled out in places like Nigeria. They give the government even more control over citizens.

That’s DeSantis’ main problem with them as well, noting that a CBDC would give much “more power” to the federal state than it should have.

As DeSantis pointed out, inflation is still rapidly going up and the government has shown numerous times that it doesn’t know what’s best for regular folks.

Having a CBDC is just part of the federal “agenda” to monitor and “control the behavior” of US citizens, DeSantis says.

‘A Can of Worms’

Saying this move would open up a big “can of worms,” DeSantis added that the state of Florida will use its Uniform Commercial Code to ban any future transactions run under some kind of CBDC system.

Nigeria rolled out its digital currency. It pressured and manipulated citizens into using it by limiting their ability to access other forms of money.

As DeSantis noted, Communist China also has a CBDC and uses it to follow everything citizens do, blocking them from “goods and services” when desired.

In other words, a CBDC gives the government power over your wallet completely in terms of whether or not you have any ability to access or spend money.

What This All Means

DeSantis said his blockage of CBDC will go through sometime during this year, but it’s important to keep in mind this is just Florida, not the whole country.

DeSantis is urging other states like Texas to follow suit and do what he’s doing, but a lot of states are likely going to go along with a CBDC if (and when) it arrives.

This is eerily similar to Biblical prophecies about the Mark of the Beast and other warnings, which talk of a number or code which everyone must have to buy or sell.

Believers and patriots must remain aware of what’s going on. DeSantis definitely deserves credit for getting ahead on this critical matter.
