A new bill seeks to track your money and assets incessantly, will enjoin any business with government ties to act as a de facto arm of DHS, and would steal all of your assets including Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies should you fail to report funds when traveling with over $10,000.
Under the guise of combating money laundering, Senate Bill 1241, Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017, ramps up regulation of digital currency and other autocratic financial controls in an attempt to ensure none of your assets can escape one of the States most nefarious, despised powers: civil asset forfeiture.
All of this under the farcically broad umbrella of fighting terrorism.
Civil forfeiture grants the government robbery writ large: your cash, property, and assets can be stolen completely sansdue process, your guilt frequently pertaining to drug crimes matters not.
A court verdict of not guilty doesnt even guarantee the return of State-thefted property.
In fact, the government can seize virtually whatever it wants if it so much as suspects some of your assets might have been acquired through or used in the commission of even lesser crimes.

We’re losing the war:
Everytime some Muslim blows something up, we normal Americans lose more civil rights.
Death of the West by a thousand IED’s.
Remind me again who has control of congress?
ANYONE voting for this needs to be eliminated in the primary.
$10,000? what’s that, like 7 or 8 Krugerrands?
A small dose of click-bait.
There should be neither asset seizure nor civil liability (when the underlying complaint is a crime) without first there being a conviction.
That’s should be the minimum restriction of government in these matters. Not the maximum.
If that means bad guy’s money gets away so government cannot lord it over regular folks then so be it.
But they don’t have time to fix healthcare?
The Democrat Party controls Congress. The Republican Party has the most members, but they allow the Democrats call the shots[ Control what Congress does, or doesn’t do]
Actually, the Republicans have introduced a bill limiting most civil asset forfeiture.
So if it is 10g's you are now a freaking criminal?
Do they get why we voted for President Donald J Trump?
Don't touch our stuff, leave us alone, and let us do things for ourselves including buying with cash, we are not the bad guys...
I tried going to the website to find out who is pushing this bill, but I couldn’t get in. The site froze when it was partly loaded, and I had to close it. I don’t know if there’s some kind of bug there, or just one of those things.
Instead of monitoring mooselimbs, we all are monitored.
Fascism is the current rage in the US.
We all know what will be required to change the outcome
I smell onion here ?
We need to start over. Government needs to be cleaned out.
We have to get a new Speaker.
Why do we continue to elect people that see it as their duty, to destroy this country and all that it stands for?
I can understand the Left. They don’t care, for now. Their supporters are sheep with just enough money in their pockets for Starbucks, Whole Foods and craft beer. Not much else.
But, what is the Right thinking? Keep sending back the McCain’s, Ryan’s, Graham’s, McConnell’s, etc, time after time, expecting a different result. Letting these guys so cozy with their corporate masters, that they learn to not give a damn about the people.
Oh no! Congressional Republicans are meeting in secret to eliminate Social Security and Medicare too!
