So what are Mexicans being persecuted for that makes them eligible for asylum? Or does our definition of asylum fit poor neighborhoods with people afraid of druglords? Compton can't be that much safer than Tijuana.
Just a reminder, assuming Snowden isn't a CIA plant or anything, he will be safe in Russia as long as he does not speak out against the Russian government. Assange being in the UK was a recipe for disaster.
Crypto usage needs to be as easy as buying with the US Dollar. The only way i can think of to keep the government and consumers happy is to perform a per purchase asset exchange tax much like sales tax.
Bottom line is, if there is ever a problem, i will comply with tax authorities to the best of my abilities. Even if it means my wages are garnished or face penalties. But the fact remains the law needs to change.
Bought a game? Taxable event. Day traded crypto on Shapeshift when records weren't kept? Your fucked, 0 cost basis. It turns into an absolutely hellish nightmare where either you go bankrupt or to literal prison.
Under the existing system in the US, just about anyone who actually uses crypto regularly can be charged for tax fraud/evasion if they don't have absolutely meticulous records kept of every single explicit activity.
The people with the best chances in an election in the US are the ones with millions of dollars to spend campaigning. Either from silver-spoon upbringing or the corrupt under-the-table sponsorship of political parties
Note, this isn't to say a lawless and anarchic society is a solution. But rather a society where those in power are not protected by bureaucratic election processes rigged with partisanism and an unlevel playing field
I disagree with Craig Wright. Banning anonymity isn't going to solve the worlds problems and kill off lying and cheating. The idea that it's even possible is naive at best and deceptive and malicious at worst.
