    This great American hero:



    But this man truly represented America:


    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
    "True law is right reason in agreement with nature . . . Whoever is disobedient is fleeing from himself and denying his human nature [and] will suffer the worst penalties . . ." - Cicero

    Seems to me we have a zillion more important things to spend our time, money, and effort on, than dicking around with the pictures on our currency.
    I agree with that, if you want to put a politician on a new currency it would have to be something limited and not necessarily in usage in those mechanized sectors. Of course, your point of having much more important issues at the time trumps all of that, we got stuff to fix right now in the economy.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I personally think Grant's face is just fine on the Fifty. It was his generalship that saved the Union, after all.

    But let's ignore that and see who could replace him.
    I think we should go with putting some of past civil rights leaders on our currency like Martin Luther King jr. I also like the idea of putting General Patton on our currency too.
    "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"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    I'm sure the HUUUUGEST push EVER will be to put the First Half-Moon Cookie President on the currency, partly as an effort to gloss over the fact that he's the biggest failure of a president this nation has ever seen, and partly to call all who oppose this idea racists.

    So will they want to change the name to the "Fitty Dollah Bill" too?

    If it were to change, I would go for either John Locke or Jackie Cochran.
