Bitcoin hasn't been a form of money for 5000 years...not even 5000 days.
The government can shut down the internet. They can destroy the bitcoin system just like they can with online poker. They can make it illegal with steep penalties. Who would pay with or accept Bitcoins when there was say a 10 year prison sentence to go with it?
They have to physically come into your home and FIND your gold in order to confiscate. Gold can be hidden. Gold can be buried. Gold can be stored outside of the US and outside of the reach of the US government.
“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul
