    Would you have a chip implant if it meant that you would not have to carry cards or ID

    The government is talking about doing away with paper money.  People are using credit and debit cards now.  The world is quckly becoming a cashless society.  RFID chips are available for human use and can easily track financial transactions as well as movement of goods, people and health.  Would you consider an RFID chip implant for the convience and security of your wealth, health and Identity

    No. It could also track your whereabouts. It's already possible for hackers to check out the GPS of photographs you have taken. Hackers could get into the information on the chip and see where you are and therefore that you aren't at home - handy if they want to burgle you.

    I don't agree with the government doing away with paper money. First, people are already getting into 2 much debt with the hole in the wall mentality. When you have cash, you can see it go down and check your spending. The banks just want to encourage people to spend more and pay interest on it for the privilege!

      If we go to a cashless society, the government and bankers would have complete control of the masses. Your money would no longer be your own and you will be at their mercy. All they have to do is "red flag" your account for any reason and you're done

    I wouldn't consider the chip. It would have to be installed, which I hate any procedure. For my identity, anyone could brush my shoulder and have information on where I live, my bank information, and I wouldn't be able to do much but close the entire account. Honestly, I still use cash, quite often. So I hope that doesn't happen in my life time. Especially since they could also put a tracker in there. My cell phone is bad enough.

    Just wait until the government starts putting a kill switch into the RFID chip as it already is doing with cars, utilities systems and communications networks, then ask this question again. Until that happens, most people will follow along bleating behind their shepherds, oblivious to the danger.

    No! I am a fairly trusting person but I am not willing to trust any government and entity to that degree even though my apprehension might be futile. Technology is advancing at such a rate I am sure they will have some other method to keep track of us without inserting a foreign object.

      You are wise not to put your trust in the government or in bankers. :0)

    Allowing them to chip you is tantamount to branding you...you will become a piece of property...a slave. The government and the bankers would have total control of your money (and your life). If, at any time, you step out of line, you could find your bank account "red flagged" and you will not be able to access your account or engage in any transactions.

    Do you think a tiny inconvenience such as carrying I.D. is worth those possibilities?

    Never thought about this before... brilliant question!

    Now that you mention it, the tracking of personal movement concerns me and does not appeal. I have nothing to hide but grew up in apartheid South Africa where the movement of black people was strictly controlled and monitored by the government. It seemed a disgusting idea then and is a disgusting idea now.

    I use my bank cards, but like to think that I choose to use them. That might be wishful thinking on my part, but I don't like the idea of people being able to monitor/control the movement of others.

    This is another step toward greater tyranny.

    This "mark of the beast" was foretold nearly 2000 years ago -- Revelation 13.

    And the "beast?" Rockefeller and Rothschild greed and lust for power. Pure ego.

    If you're ever caught by authorities (tracking your RFID chip) going some place associated with people critical of the government, they could easily turn off your chip and you have nothing. If you protest, you become part of the problem. Could the chips also have arsenic built into them to terminate those who become too much trouble? Instant execution? And what if there is ever a bug in their software? Oops! You can't undo such action.

    Those who take the mark of the beast are automatically condemned. At best, it's a form of nicely packaged slavery.

    But they'll be adding a chip to your passport and possibly other identification. I don't want Uncle Sammy tracking me.
