I've often wondered what Mt. Rushmore would look like in a truly free society. If I were to commissioned to carve it (poorly) I would carve the following four figures:

Alan Greenspan

George W. Bush

Barack Obama

and Sarah Palin

BUT if I were to not carve such a satirical monument it would probably have Murray Rothbard, Walter Block, Ron Paul, and Cap' N' Crunch. I can't resist turning monuments into at lease semi-ridiculous.
