There are many ironies in the history of U.S. fiat currency. First, it is perhaps the biggest insult to the memory of President Andrew Jackson for the Treasury to place the face of the man whose life’s quest was to kill the central bank on the $20 bill. Now on June 17, that same department is removing the face of the man who died in a duel to have a private central bank and replace him with the face of a woman.
Political correctness trumps tradition every time in today’s Bizarro World.
Treaaury Secretary Jack Lew revealed last night that Alexander Hamilton – he of The Federalist Papers and first central bank of America – will be ousted from the $10 Bill in favor of a woman (as yet unnamed).
“We are going to be open to many ideas as we go forward consistent with theme of democracy,” Lew said. “Our thinking is to select a woman who has played a major role in our history who represents the theme of democracy.”
The bills with Hamilton in it, which were first introduced in 1929, will continue to be used for as long as those bill last, Lew said.
“America’s currency is a way for our nation to make a statement about who we are and what we stand for,” Lew said. “Our paper bills — and the images of great American leaders and symbols they depict — have long been a way for us to honor our past and express our values.” – Zerohedge
Here is a list of women who might be considered for replacement of Alexander Hamilton on the $10 was voted on through a third party website and broken down to four finalists.
1. Former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt
2. Abolitionist Harriest Tubman
3. Civil rights icon Rosa Parks
4. The first female chief of the Cherokee nation, Wilma Mankiller
However, with today’s society enamored by the LGBT movement, perhaps there is an even better candidate who expresses America’s true kinsmanship with the efforts and plight of
men, errr women.
Either way, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew’s statement that the face of money represents of the ‘values’ of America makes putting Caitlyn Jenner on the $10 bill extremely apropos.
