Too bad its illegal. Isn't the fed, technically, illegal? That would make federal reserve notes illegal, but people still use them.

It isn't illegal to write on Fed Notes, it is only illegal to intentional destroy ie melt down coins.

The website does not encourage the defacement of U.S. Currency. In October 1999, Eskin was interviewed for the New York Times, where he commented on why the Secret Service has not bothered the webmaster over the defacement of US Currency. Eskin replied "They've got better things to do. They want to catch counterfeiters counterfeiting billions of dollars."
In April 2000, the site was investigated by the United States Secret Service, which informed Eskin that the selling of "Where's George?" rubber stamps on the web site is considered "advertising" on United States currency, which is illegal under 18 U.S.C. § 475. The website's administrators immediately ceased selling the rubber stamps and no further action against the site was taken. At least one spokesperson for the US Secret Service has pointed out in print that marking US bills, even if not defacement, is still illegal for other reasons under 18 U.S.C. § 475; however, the general view[weasel words] is that using Where's George? rubber stamps on currency is not illegal per se.[verification needed One Secret Service spokesman in Seattle, Washington, told The Seattle Times in 2004: "Quite frankly, we wouldn't spend too much looking into this."

I don't think it's illegal but, even if it wasn't I wouldn't recommend anyone doing it. You're just going to give more fuel to the media that they can use against Ron Paul and his supporters -- "Oh, looks those crazy Paulbots are now doodling on dollar bills".

I like that idea... from now on I am writing "Who is Ron Paul?" on the front of all bills and "END THE FED" on the back
