I guess it is illegal to stamp the dollar with www.ronpaul2008.com stampers

but it is not illegal to spend 50 cents at the newspaper boxes and stamp every newspaper in those boxes with one. It might not even be illegal to put a Ron Paul slim jim in each of those papers in those boxes. Remember 50 cents gives you access to each and every one of those papers in that metal box. I think we can use this to our advantage, because it seems every state's local paper has decided not to mention Ron Paul in their articles. Remember everyone, those papers are delivered in bags on people's front porches before they even wake up, I don't think you can be arrested for putting a slim jim in those newspaper bags alongside those newspapers. Lets show the local newspapers what we are all about.

Stamping Fed Reserve Notes

Stamping Fed Reserve Notes is not illegal. In doing so you are not making the bill unfit to be reissued or circulated.

On the other hand, I would think stamping newspapers that you have not purchased very well may be illegal. Don't know about putting a slim jim in there.

It's not illegal

to stamp it. It is unadvisable (maybe illegal) to alter it enough to make it unrecognizable. My stamp is entirely on the border so it doesn't alter the bill in any significant way. Plus it's not obnoxious. It's noticeable, but polite. A great conversation starter too. It tuns out that everyone likes money. I stamped $20,000.00 in hundred dollar bills, then youtubed it for posterity.

link? that would be cool to

link? that would be cool to see.

Not illegal

to deface money or stamp it. Burn it even, if you want. No law against it. Your money is your private property.

It's only illegal to alter it to make it look like another value.
