I would like to post a link to an article I read about today, well actually still currently looking at
Im not sure how aware all of you are but the American government has been contimplating a combined currency for the US/Canada/Mexico. What they have come up with is called the "Amero"
This is somewhat old news since no recent developments have been heard or posted anywhere as of now. But this article brings to attention the fact that there might be a change in the pictures of modern currency that everyone in this and generations prior have been accustomed too.
There are more styles that are on the website in a little slideshow, personally I wouldn't mind changing the money because they all do look very nice and modern but Im not sure if Barrack Obama is justifiably able to replace our founding father George Washington.
What are your guys thoughts about this? Im not gonna give you guys a new post for a couple days so everyone can take a look at this because I feel it is important for everyone to check this out.

"WASHINGTON – The White House has approved the redesign of U.S. currency. Barack Obama will be on the new dollar bill.
The Obama Administration feels that the American dollar is in bad need of a makeover. They have partnered with the Dollar ReDe$ign Project to pick a new design for U.S. currency. Currently, the design that the administration likes best was done by Dowling Duncan (a British duo), which features a unique vertical design. It also features President Obama on the one dollar bill.
“We love the way Dowling Duncan think. They’ve come up with a creative design and put President Obama where he belongs… on number 1,” said David Axelrod, Senior Adviser to President Obama."
"The Dollar Redesign Project was organized by creative strategy consultant Richard Smith. He is still soliciting ideas for the dollar bill of the future. “Our great ‘rival’, the Euro, looks so spanky in comparison it seems the only clear way to revive this global recession is to rebrand and redesign,” the project notes on its website.
Here’s the web site for The Dollar Redesign Project.
“Don’t waste your time submitting a design, it’s a done deal,” said Rahm Emanuel, White House Chief of Staff. The President wants “change” in the currency and we’ve unanimously picked Dowling Duncan’s work. Fed Chairman, Benjamin Bernanke, has signed off our choice for the redesign. We hoped to have the money in circulation by June, 2011.”
