    They look cool, but I much prefer what we have now. Money doesn't need to be artwork.

    You forgot about Marylin Monroe.

    That would get my vote for the $10 bill

    Money is art.

    And I wonder why we have a 25 cent coin and no 20 cent coin..... but a 20 dollar bill and no 25 dollar bill.

    Things like that perplex me.

    Fair enough.

    But, I suppose what I meant is it's not meant to be anything more than minimalist in design. Our money is fine as it is now.

    If we are going to do this, I'd much rather remove a scumbag like Jackson from currency, although my opinion of Hamilton isn't too high either. They probably chose $10 because unlike Jackson, Hamilton doesn't have a bizarre following anxious to defend genocide at any opportunity.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    It is now politically correct to recognize that women and people of other skin colors took part in creating this country... I swear... The words "politically correct" are becoming a silly expression used by white guys to justify living under a false narrative that it was only white Christian men who built this country.

    I wouldn't be surprised if states like Texas actually came out with textbooks declaring that there weren't even people living in this continent before Europeans showed up. It was just a barren wasteland that had waited on the arrival of the British for 5607 years... you know, seeing that the earth is only 6K years old.

    Excellent list. I thought nobody else knew about Anne Bradstreet. She was an amazing woman.

    I also think Anne Hutchinson would be a good pick.

    Maybe they should wait a few months and put Hillary on the note to celebrate the first female President.
