So, they want to get stiff-necked statist Alexander Hamilton off the tenner and replace him with a woman, do they? I'm okay with that -- personally, I'd rather say goodbye to Andy Jackson, but at least he's got a slightly better claim to be on money.
So why not put Ayn Rand's face on the $10? It'll please Rand fans a bit, since she'd be getting recognition; Rand foes can chortle over putting a strong advocate of money of inherent value on flimsy Federal fiat greenbacks. Feminists will get a strong woman, male chauvinists will get another spooky chick with scary eyes to fume about; conservatives will get a Republican, libertarians will get a minarchist and liberals will get either an abortion supporter or something to gripe about, depending on their mood and which will irk their parents the most. Total win!
