I still vote to not include NH at all. There is NO good reason.

I missed the one by TippleBipple, which is very beautiful and pretty much perfect, but I am obligated to nitpick anyway.  :twisted:

Let's see...  Well, some idiots will think it's a target painted over New Hampshire, like we're gonna blow it up or something, but who cares - idiots will always find something to spin us as evildoers.  And the pentagrams - what's the logic behind those? 


I still vote to not include NH at all. There is NO good reason.

There is very good reason for some.  The people who invest all their time, energy, and reputation into the Free State Project clearly benefit from propagating the idea that New Hampshire equals liberty.  They would want a libertarian to see this note and think "I like stable / competitive currency, I should move to New Hampshire", or for a Masshole to see it and think "me scared / angry / confused, me from New Hampshire stay away", even if just subconsciously.

I like FSP, but it also scares me: I just know I'll end up in prison or worse.  My values fluctuate with my moods and emotions.  On most days I would prefer to see a seastead on that bill instead.  Not that seasteading is less risky, but the time-line is very different, which means putting your hope in seasteading makes paying taxes and otherwise kissing the government's ass prudent in the meantime...

It's not a vote, it's just feedback that the artist may or may not find constructive, but what would you like to see there instead?

Regardless of where it starts, it needs to start in one town, then move up to a county, then a state, then two states, etc. . .that way we can optimize our structure gradually. 

Think about it this way : If we can't get a town doing it, how can we get a country doing it?

While you're making your scrap paper look all purty n sech, you are ignoring human factor engineering. 

Notes like these would save retailers tons per year:



Sell the benefits, not features.

I wouldn't even talk about the blind benefit.  There are a lot of differently-sighted individuals who get very upset at the mere mention of doing something "for them".  The big benefit is the shape would allow cashiers to handle stacks of cash like stripper decks.  Cash-intensive businesses would save incredible amounts of man hours.

Ayn Rand used the U.S. dollar sign as her personal symbol...  Ironygasm!

Why not put several dead intellectuals on there, including Murray Rothbard, Ludwig von Mises, etc.  Or maybe some living ones will give their permission, like David D. Friedman, Lew Rockwell, etc.


Why bother printing anyone's portrait on a currency note?

Why bother printing anything other than a number, whatever anti-counterfeiting features, a URL where people can find our what the heck it is, and anything else that is required or prudent by law?

Aesthetics.  Also anti-counterfeiting features can be easier to hide in plain sight.  But the main reason is propaganda.

All the more reason I don't want Ayn Rand on my money.
