For starters the penny is far past pointless by now. And secondly he's still on the $5

we could but that would require everyone to have a bank account to do any sort of transaction. Even if it's just a vending machine.

Yah I mean it's not like we have anything at all similar in place already.
And it's not like removing the penny won't cause a **** storm of it's own or anything.

Do you not realize the absolute lack of privacy that would exist if we went to an all electronic system?

I was just thinking about this yesterday. Everything you buy would be track-able and the information could be stored and collected. I feel that humans need the feeling that they have privacy in the things they do to function well in a society. I believe that as you take away humans' freedom to commit all wrongs (for example, putting speed regulators on all cars so that speeding is impossible), and freedom to privacy, you'll create mental illness among the population and generations of irresponsible adults.

Hey, that's great. Except that already happens . Despite what you might think, no one keeps thousands of dollars under their matress.

It resolves more problems than it causes.
Its essentially the same system was have now, where most people opt to use credit or debit cards over cash.
It wouldn't be easy obviously, but it solves so many problems that the resources needed to hammer out the details would be much lower than the problems that paper money creates.

You said that two hours ago retard.
Why don't you actually spend 2 minutes to come up with a real argument instead of saying "herp, derp, u r wrong" that is, assuming you have the capability to say anything besides "no", and "good night".
