Beyond Politics: Presidential Candidate RFK Jr. Challenges the Status Quo and Stands for Crypto
In a political landscape often filled with empty promises, one presidential candidate dares to defy the establishment and champion the cause of cryptocurrency and personal liberty. Robert F. Kennedy Jr., in an exclusive interview with The New York Post, boldly declares his opposition to central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), decrying them as tools of control and oppression. With fervent support for Bitcoin and a commitment to safeguard individual rights, Kennedy Jr. emerges as a beacon of hope for those seeking a leader unafraid to challenge the status quo. Delve into the thought-provoking insights shared by this unconventional candidate, as he calls out the SEC, warns of encroaching tyranny, and champions freedom of speech.
On June 22nd, Presidential Candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. sat down for an interview with Lydia Moynihan of The New York Post and discussed various topics including Artificial Intelligence, Elon Musk, Bitcoin, and CBDCs.
When asked about cryptocurrency, RFK Jr. boldly stated that he opposes central bank digital currencies because “they are instruments of control and oppression, and are certain to be abused.”
Earlier this year, RFK Jr. also criticized CBDCs by claiming they “grease the slippery slope to financial slavery and political tyranny”.
“I will make sure that we have policies that support bitcoin and the freedom to transact and that allow individuals to manage their own bitcoin wallets, nodes, and passwords. I will allow only the narrowest controls that are necessary to prevent money laundering.”

Last month, RFK Jr. made headlines when he threw support behind Ellen Brown and her article linking the SEC’s war on crypto to directly causing the multiple bank collapses we saw earlier this year.
Clearly Kennedy Jr. has no problem making enemies with the SEC as he calls them out on their tyrannical behavior, in regards to cryptocurrency.
“While cash transactions are anonymous, a CBDC will allow the government to surveil all our private financial affairs. The central bank will have the power to enforce dollar limits on our transactions restricting where you can send money, where you can spend it, and when money expires.
A CBDC tied to digital ID and social credit score will allow the government to freeze your assets or limit your spending to approved vendors if you fail to comply with arbitrary diktats, i.e. vaccine mandates.
The Fed will initially limit its CBDC to interbank transactions but we should not be blind to the obvious danger that this is the first step in banning and seizing bitcoin as the Treasury did with gold 90 years ago today in 1933.
Watch as governments, which never let a good crisis go to waste, use Covid-19 and the banking crisis to usher in a new wave of CBDCs as a safe haven from germ-laden paper currencies or as protection against bank runs.”

While discussing the potential ramifications of censorship, RFK Jr. claimed that he is a fan of Elon Musk because he “supports freedom of speech”.
Further emphasizing his stance, the presidential candidate identified himself as a libertarian on matters of free expression, asserting that greater freedom fosters increased opportunities.
I tend to stay away from all things related to politics, but it seems that crypto and politics are becoming more and more entwined as time goes on.
Amidst this political landscape, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. stands out as a breath of fresh air amongst the sea of conventional politicians.
His thoughtful and engaging discourse on these topics instills a sense of belief that he transcends the archetype of a typical politician, igniting hope that he may actually fulfill his promises if elected.
However, this is hard to actually believe because it feels like a politician’s job is to promise the world and then deliver nothing.
Ultimately, it is truly inspiring to see a presidential candidate like Robert F. Kennedy Jr. taking a bold stand against central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), while also supporting Bitcoin and individual freedoms.
