NO, I do not think Andrew Jackson deserves to be on the $20 bill.
Jacksonian Democracy: A political movement that helped Andrew Jackson in the election of 1828. Jackson gave common white men the power to vote in hope that they would vote for him, they did and Jackson became the seventh president of the United States.
Andrew Jackson knew that giving common white men the power to vote would make the majority vote for him. He used this to his power to the election of 1828. I think that Jacksonian Democracy made Andrew Jackson a good president because he gave more of the American population a chance to share their ideas with the American government.
Spoils System: The spoils system is an act where a new president fills government positions with people of the same political views and options as him.
Andrew Jackson used the spoils system to fill the government with his supporters and people with the same views as him. I think that the spoils system Jackson a bad president because when the government is full of all his supporters so they will agree with him and no one will see how his ideas will effect the country.
Indian Removal Policy: This policy allowed for the U.S. government to negotiate treaties with the Native Americans. These treaties caused the Natives to move and relocate west, causing many hardships. The Indian Removal Policy forever changed the relationship between the whites and the Native Americans.
Andrew Jackson used the Indian removal policy to exchange land with the Native Americans. The policy took land from the Native so Jackson could give it to land-hungry Americans.
The Indian Removal Policy made Jackson a bad president because it took land from the Natives without any real reason just the fact that the Americans wanted more lans for themselves
States Rights: When Jackson became president he, ad Congress, set tariffs on raw material and manufactured goods. Southerns were out raged because they were the ones mostly affected, John Calhoun understood and wrote the Doctrine of Nullification. At a dinner party Jackson and Calhoun had an argument thought their toast to one and other.
Andrew Jackson thought that the government should have more power than the states. So he took power from the states to make a stronger federal government. States Rights makes Jackson a horriable president because he took power from his citizen and the American citizens should have a say in their government and should know what's going on in their country
War on National Banks/Economical Decisions: Congress wanted to renew the banks charter, but Jackson vetoed the renewal and claimed that the bank was unconstitutional. On Jackson's second term he set out to destroy the bank completely. The people rallied to Jackson's position and the bank eventually wen tout of business.
Andrew Jackson used war on national banks to close the second U.S. bank to try to remind his congress members that the banks were unconstitutional. The war on national banks make Jackson a bad president because he not only because he thought the banks were unconstitutional but because he had finical problems when he was younger
