They Want to Put Oprah on the $10 Bill

new worthless $10 bill

Currently, Alexander Hamilton’s face appears on the ten dollar bill. However, there is a movement to replace his face, well, not exactly replace him, but to “scootch him over” and have him share the bill with a woman. The reason behind this movement leaves me baffled. So that women can identify with a woman of greatness? I thought the Helen Reddy song, I am Woman Hear Me Roar, did that for us!!

All joking aside, who will share the ten dollar bill with Hamilton? Some names being thrown out there are just plain ridiculous, such as Oprah. I hate to tell the “O’ fans, that one of the criteria to be considered to fit the bill (no pun intended) is that one has to be dead. Although Oprah’s TV ratings may be dead, she is still, in fact, very much alive. Besides being a Daytime Talk Host, what meaningful thing has she contributed to our Country, anyway?

Here are the top 10 reasons why we should keep Alexandar Hamilton (alone) on the $10 bill

  1. He came to America as an orphan and became the chief staff aide to General George Washington and fought for America.
  2. He was one of the Founding Father’s of the United States of America.
  3. He was the most influential interpreters and promoters of our Constitution.
  4. He was the founder of our nation’s financial system.
  5. He was the founder of the Federalist Party, the world’s first voter-based political party.
  6. He was the first United States Secretary of the Treasury appointed by Washington.
  7. He established the U.S. Mint.
  8. He lobbied for the Congress of the Army. Hamilton drafted a call to revise the Articles of Confederation. This resolution contained many features of the future U.S. Constitution, including a strong federal government with the ability to collect taxes and raise an army. It also included the separation of powers into the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches.
  9. He served as assemblyman from New York County in the New York State Legislature.
  10. He was anti-slavery. Alexander Hamilton came to America as an orphan and became a (founding) Father to a Great Nation. Over 200 years ago, He played a pivotal role in helping to establish the guidelines of our government, one which that continue to govern us to this day and whose ideas still exemplify what it means to be a real American.

As one of the founders of our country, the founder of our financial system, the man who established the U.S. Mint (where money is printed) and the first Secretary of the Treasury – don’t you think he has earned the right to have his face grace the $10 bill all by himself?

Putting anyone alongside Hamilton will diminish all that he accomplished and isn’t that the real goal here?

“Minimizing” Hamilton is part of the over-all scheme to destroy our heritage and our identity. For the past couple of years, there has been a deliberate, vicious attack on our Constitution and the history of America by those in power who want to “fundamentally” change America.

It appears to me that we are just trying to cheapen Hamilton’s status as a key player in the creation of our great nation.

I bet you $10 bucks that changing the face on the $10 bill will do absolutely nothing worthwhile for America.

  1. Lets compromise. Split the difference over the whole male/female businesses and put Caitlyn Jenner on the bill. She/he could cinch the spot by saying he/she feels black. Think about it. It would be like hitting for the PC cycle. (Hitting for the cycle in baseball means collecting a single, double, triple, and homer in 1 game.) Caitlyn-Bruce could claim to be white, black, male & female!

  2. One of our founding father’s having all his accomplishments minimized by a talk show host !! On Father’s Day, no less. What a disgrace.

  3. in what universe would Oprah fit on a American bill?

    I’ d put Belle Watling on there: a nod to the political whores in DC.

  4. y’all realize this is just continuing the disparaging and displacement of the culture and overwhelmingly disproportional SUCCESS of the “Blond-haired, Blue-eyed DEVILs” that made America the greatest country in recorded history, that the America haters hate the most cuz all cultures equal, or sumpin

  5. This was a joke. I believe there is a list of people not Oprah. The only one I can remember off the top of my head is Rosa Parks.

    • Eleanor Roosevelt, abolitionist Harriet Tubman, civil-rights icon Rosa Parks and Wilma Mankiller, who served as principal chief of the Cherokee Nation. I just found the list.

    • It was a girl’s band put Oprah out there. They said it for publicity but some are suggesting Beyonce – that was on The Daily Beast and it’s just as ridiculous. Almost everyone they’re coming up with is a left wing activist. Rosa Parks, while I like her, was part of a staged event.

      All of this is meant to change our proud history into something else.

  6. The whole topic of even thinking of changing the $10 bill is a bad joke.

    Hamilton accomplished so much as one of our founding fathers. To minimize him on the $10 bill is an attempt to spit on our history! Disgraceful

  7. This was all started by a little boy. Shows how gullible our nation has become. If they change the $10 bill I will refuse to accept it. We all can. Make the banks and others give u two fives or ten ones for change. They have to do it. It will soon go the way of the Susan B Anthony dollar. I did this when our government made Eid and Kwanza stamps at Christmas time. I wouldn’t accept either one.

  8. Really make us the laughing stock of the world… stick Miley Cyrus on there as a 3D Hologram and when you flip it on it’s side and wiggle the bill back and forth, it make it look like she standing there twerking! Leave Hamilton ON for crying out loud. You want a bill with a female on, make a new one like a $7 or $15 bill.

  9. What a disgrace this would be to our country. She hasn’t done anything to help race relations. If anything she’s made it worse. What about helping our citizens instead of building schools overseas. Our citizens should come first, then after ourns are helped then help the ones overseas.. I will refuse a ten dollar bill if she is on it. They should leave our money alone and quit trying to change history.

  10. Why not Betsy Ross if anyone? She’s the one who put together Old Glory. ….. politics, a crock of shit. Period.

  11. I think we should change all bills every 5 years with new faces. Put pictures of heros such as gen. patton or Helen Keller the list is long

  12. How about Betsy Ross, Rosa Parks, Joan of Arc. Susan B. Anthony is also on the list. If they are going to change it, get someone who helped our country in the patriotic way.

    • Or, like, Beyoncé, or, or, or, like, Caitlyn Jenner. Just not RU Paul, cause her dad’s, like, a libertarian or something.

  13. So instead of replacing Hamilton, how about making a new bill, a $7 dollar bill, because the feminazivictimologists say women only get paid 70% of what men do so ….there you go, girl!
