The plan to eradicate cash and control your spending is a real attack on individual liberty.
Michael Snyder posted an article via Infowars yesterday detailing the coming cashless society that governments are pushing throughout Europe. Snyder noted that 95 percent of all retail sales in Sweden are now cashless while also revealing that Denmark’s government promised to eradicate cash completely by 2030.
In Sweden, hundreds of bank branches no longer accept or dispense cash, and thousands of ATM machines have been permanently removed. At this point, bills and coins only account for just 2 percent of the Swedish economy, and many stores no longer take cash at all. The notion of a truly “cashless society” was once considered to be science fiction, but now we are being told that it is “inevitable”, and authorities insist that it will enable them to thwart criminals, terrorists, drug runners, money launderers and tax evaders. But what will we give up in the process? Source
The elite are clearly accelerating their program, cash transactions of more than 2,500 euros are now banned in Spain while France and Italy instituted the same rule for transactions of more than 1,000 euros.
417 billion cashless transactions were conducted in 2014, and the final number for 2015 is projected to be much higher. Source
So, what does this really mean?
With the dissolution of cash comes the destruction of our privacy rights. If the general public is required to carry RFID chip-ridden credit cards, the federal government could track purchases, travel plans and even your exact location at any given time.
Even CNBC published an article detailing the real dangers of eliminating cash:
If current government trends continue, a cashless economy could thus very well lead to an econgularity. Imagine a future in which soon, a government staff member could suspect an individual of some misconduct, or perhaps deem that person’s politics or speech unacceptable.
It would take just a few keystrokes to order all financial institutions to decline any withdrawal or payment from that individual and to transfer any deposits or payments of that person to the government, or at least freeze any access to funds.
Perhaps this would need to be reviewed by a secret court that would approve 99.7 percent of all requests, but would provide a veneer of due process. It is fair to think that the targeted individual might starve to death. This could be insured by cutting off access to the payment system of anyone suspected of helping the targeted individual.

In short, prohibiting the use of cash would eradicate individual liberty.
Think about it, the feds already have the power to seize private property without due process, put innocent Americans on an arbitrary “no-fly” list and spy on law abiding citizens without a warrant.
The last thing our government needs is more power.
Power they could use to dissolve our bank accounts, power they could use to decide where or why or how we purchase items on a daily basis, power they could use for the purpose of a totalitarian stranglehold on our lives.
With just one click, the criminal establishment could revoke your ability to conduct a transaction. For the sake of this republic, we cannot allow authoritarians to institute a cashless society under the guise of convenience.
It could mean the end of freedom as we know it.
