    They have been suggesting this, although it never goes anywhere.

    If its cheaper, I say go for it.

    It's much cheaper in the long term.

    I think it's more feasible now than ever before, more people deal in plastic rather than cash. I never carry cash, so I would barely notice the switch.

    Doesn't matter to me as long as I can exchange that coin or bill for something real, something tangible, whose value is determined by a free market. Gold would be fine.

    There already is a one dollar coin. I have two of them. It is just a tiny bit larger than a quarter and is very easily mistaken for one, which probably accounts for why it's become so obscure.

    Thread topic, well, could be a legitimate discussion.

    Poll? Ummm... no, this is just more pathetic, libroid, partisan hack garbage from one of the boards stupidest, mouth breathing socialists...
