    To the person on spreading it into other countries. That may sound good but also could backfire as some will feel we are pushing our way on them.

    Why put it on the back? It should be on the front.

    I agree that "Federal Reserve Note" should be removed, because that's a lie.

    If it's put on the back, I'll never see it. Money passes through my hands much too quickly to allow me the time to turn it over.

    Kind of ironic to have the Constitution on money that says "In God We Trust."

    Anyway, here is the bill for it

    Bill Summary & Status - 111th Congress (2009 - 2010) - H.R.2854 - All Information - THOMAS (Library of Congress)
    If every dollar bill came with a free magnifying glass, maybe.

    Cosmetic changes shouldn't be made when we're bankrupt as it is.

    We're not bankrupt. And the rich fighting tooth and nail to avoid paying more taxes are as far from bankrupt as it's possible to be.

    Why should it be ?
    We live in a democracy, do we not ?
    Few people want this "God" thing removed..
    I'd say the time is coming soon when the entire Constitution should be re-done. Its an antiquated scrap of paper - pertinent to an earlier time in our history.
    I'll bet the tea-bagging conservatives love this silly idea of changing the one dollar(one dime) "bill" to show the Constitution.

    No, a republic.

    That's not their point. The Constitution states that the federal government shouldn't "choose" a religion. I'm okay with "In God We Trust" not being on our money.

    I consider myself a tea partier and I think it's a silly idea. And, seriously, aren't we beyond the immature name-calling yet?

    You're half right. We live in a constitutionally limited democratic republic - we democratically elect representatives.
