Presidential Candidate Darryl W. Perry Becomes the First Presidential Candidate to accept Bitcoin
April 19, 2013, Keene, NH – On this date in 1775, the first shots of the American Revolution were fired. Today, Presidential candidate Darryl W. Perry announces that he will be the first Presidential candidate to accept bitcoin, and will only accept alternative currencies.
There are several reasons for this decision.
First, Darryl is a supporter of alternative currencies and believes the Federal Reserve System should be abolished. In an attempt to put this support for alternative currencies into real-world practice, the campaign will only accept alternative currencies, converting them only as needed.
Second, Darryl does not believe the Federal Election Commission has legitimate authority to regulate the fundraising of candidates or donations of those giving to candidates or their campaigns. In an attempt to avoid compliance with the FEC, the campaign will not be accepting donations in the monies recognized by the federal legal tender laws.
Third, since the campaign will not be complying with FEC regulations, and since the campaign would like to raise funds, the only reasonable option for accepting funds without using the banking system is to only accept alternative currencies.
“I believe this is a major step in the progression of Presidential campaigns and elections, in general,” Perry said, “If I’m going to avoid their regulations in my campaign, I should also avoid using their money in my campaign !”
