Whose Face?

Apparently progressives are pushing for an end to Andrew Jackson's face appearing on the Twenty-Dollar Bill. (read here)

I'm not a fan of Andrew Jackson as presidents go, but I take it in a different direction than the New York Times did in the article referenced and a different direction than the liberal elite in America. They want the face of an Indian or an African on the banknote.

I think that Ronald Reagan's face should be on the US $20.

It was Reagan who put America back on a sound financial footing after the disastrous Carter years. It was Reagan whose leadership ended the Cold War, etc.

  1. Reagan in a cowboy hat would be comforting...

    1. None of the other dead presidents have hats on in US Currency. You're absolutely right that this may be the time to set a new precedent.

  3. Good idea, LL. I'd like to see General Lee on a banknote, too.

    1. I think that Reagan has a better chance than either Lee or Jackson. Grant won, he's on the $50.

  5. We need a three dollar bill. I can think of one president who would be perfect.

    1. I think that we'd need to put a long beard and a turban on him to make the effect stick.
