Socialists are greedy now?  Huh

Of course. They always want to steal more from the productive to give to the unproductive.

Bitcoins are super-convenient barter tokens for the internet

This is better since it speaks more to function.

But I still think saying how it is an improvement over something people are already familiar with (like paypal) is better. Even if the comparison isn't the complete story.

I agree with you, Jed, that comparing Bitcoin to familiar things such as PayPal is the most productive option.

But I can't bring myself to tell people "Bitcoin is a free paypal that anyone can use" when Bitcoin isn't always free to use. And I can't think of an honest slogan that's as catchy as your slogan.

Agreed!

Totally. And I would use that slogan... I hate when I see someone explaining bitcoin as a crytocurrencywhatnot and people just look at them with a "huhwtf?!?!?" face.
