Mark Warden, a New Hampshire State Representative, is the first incumbent politician to accept Bitcoin donations as he runs for re-election. A republican from just outside of Manchester, Rep. Warden spoke to PYMNTS.com about how the Bitcoin system appeals to him and the effect it’s had on his campaign.

“The idea behind Bitcoin was to have a currency that competes against the U.S. dollar, or Chinese yuan, or Japanese yen or euro, and gives people a choice. It’s something that ideally will not be subject to inflationary whims,” Warden says.

There's also an audio interview. http://pymnts.com/briefing-room/issuers/virtual-currency/State-Rep-Views-Bitcoin-As-Legitimate-Currency-Competitor-/

More about Mark Warden and Bitcoin here, here and here.

So basically this guy is more of a supporter of bitcoin than Ron Paul is.  It's a bit surprising.

Really cool. I would like to donate something. But I'm no US resident.

All previous versions of currency will no longer be supported as of this update

Ron Paul has a hate boner against the FED, it's like half his thing - Bitcoin is very anti-FED.

I suppose Paul is a bit too old to grasp the concepts of a cryptocurrency  Wink
