Replace Cash

Printing money is expensive. We could save money with an automated system. I propose we show our patriotism by getting an American flag tattooed onto our hand – or some patriotic Americans can have it on their forehead. The flag will be specially coded with a small bar code under it that is unique for every citizen. A database will keep track of each person’s accounts.


To enforce this system, cash will become void and no purchase will be allowed if the person does not show their love for this country by having the American flag tattooed above their bar code.
