Just give him his own denomination, for God's sake...
Here in North Carolina, Patrick McHenry, one of the brilliant Republicans that represents our state in Congress wants to replace Ulysses S. Grant on the $50 bill with the visage of Ronald Reagan.
I've got a better idea: Instead of trying to get rid of an actual American hero from an existing piece of currency, let's give St. Ronnie his own new bill.
It could look like real money, fold like real money, give conservatives goosebumps and have no real value, much like Ronnie acted like a real President while being essentially clueless about the world around him.
It seems like a fitting tribute for President Reagan to be memorialized on a piece of currency that isn't worth the paper it's printed on...
