"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
I picked other. I do not think we should change the dollar.I think maybe replacing the portrait on a ten or twenty would be a better option
. I think for the woman it should be Harriet Tubman.Not only was she an abolitionist but she actively risked her life and freedom to free slaves,and she spied for the union during the civil war.
I do not think being first lady, flying a plane,or being NASA astronaut should be qualifications for who we put on our money.If we were going to put a face of civil rights for blacks it should be MLK jr, not Rosa Parks.Which I do advocate that we put MLK jr on our currency.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

I vote Jessica Alba. If nothing else I would be less likely to part with my cash and save money
I don't think anyone but the Founders should be pictured on money, really.
But that's just my personal view.... I'd remove Lincoln from it as well.

"I used to roll the dice; see the fear in my enemies' eyes... listen as the crowd would sing, 'now the old king is dead, Long Live the King.'.."
