The John Wayne Museum started a petition to replace George Washington with John Wayne on the U.S. one dollar bill. If you feel moved to support the effort, you can head on over to the Hilltop Plaza 7-Eleven to sign the petition.
The petition reads as follows:
Be It Resolved:
That the image of John Wayne replace
that of George Washington on the
American One Dollar Bill
Whereas: John Wayne continues to serve as the
embodiment of American reliability;
Whereas: John Wayne's word was his bond and
he made good on all commitments;
Whereas: John Wayne's popularity in the United
States and around the World continues to cast a
favorable image of Americans;
In a film career career spanning nearly 50 years and 154 films, John Wayne portrayed Americans at their best. The Duke made sure that his characters spoke plainly, made good on all promises, and always delivered the goods. Even decades after his death, John Wayne is still a favorite film star in The United States and around the World. Therefore, We Petition The United States Department of Treasury to grant John Wayne his rightful place on American Currency.
