    I really like the idea replacing Lincoln with Madison. Good thinking.

    Since founders were also on paper currency, if woman is to join the club, wouldn't Betsy Ross be most appropriate?

    If she had actually designed Old Glory. She gets credit for it; however, there's little to no evidence that it's actually true.

    Harriet Tubman would be a good one.

    That kind of thinking is why we are still so divided today .

I think the idea is worth exploring and I was wondering who would be best suited for the position. Of all the names I've seen tossed out Sally Ride, Susan B. Anthony, and Rosa Parks seemed the most deserving. If I was forced to pick I think Susan B. Anthony is best suited because of her broad and enduring impact on American history and because she better fits chronologically with our current choices.

    I put up the options I'd read tossed around the most with one or two of my own choosing but feel free to add in your own. I also recognize that this would force the displacement of someone else from our currency and if I had to pick I don't think I'd be too sorry to see Jackson go.

    VOTE: Who Should Be the First Woman On a Modern Dollar Bill? - 1


    I think Tammy Faye Baker. She seems to represent everything that the dollar does. A false picture built with imagery. Remember the Tammy Faye shirts with the lipstick eye shadow and fake lashes and you were "confident" just exactly what it represented. The dollar represents an imagery that implies it is worth something and "confidence" is the pump that keeps people thinking that. It has only fiat value, or money because we say it is. Tammy was a preacher because she said she was, like a fiat minister. She promoted great "confidence " that if you sent money, it would do mysterious things, the Lord's work was implied. The gov't wants you to give them money and they will do mysterious things, the "Lord's Work," like humantarian bombing, oxymoron. It's really pretty simple and I don't see how any one besides Tammy would even be considered. Also, if you give money to Tammy or the gov't it just evaporates and you are left holding an empty bag.

    No, those divisions were born long ago in this country, well before Lincoln. His inability to hold to the Constitution and keep the union together through diplomacy is what made the of divisions canyons.

    I'm gonna go with Sojourner Truth. She displayed more courage and undertook more personal danger than anyone who has ever been on any money. She is a hero in every worthwhile sense of the word.

    Please continue with this anti-Constitutional NULLIFICATION mantra. It will be the end of the GOP Lincoln started. Rewriting history over the civil war shows how lost your cause is .
