Storyboard Text

  • The Debate Begins
  • I will not stand for this!
  • I impose a tariff on all imported goods.
  • The Resignation
  • I haven't any voice in this matter, but I will say Mr. Vice President makes a very pressing case.
  • The Southerners don't like it, but they don't like to buy domestic, so that means more money for us.
  • But, money is not key to the survival of humanity, we have to focus on the well-being of our citizens.
  • The South Reacts
  • We will pass a nullification act, for we will not take this. You, Mr. President, are being bias to us. This is because you don't appreciate us, you just want money!
  • We refuse! We will not follow this obscene act of injustice, this is deeply inhumane.
  • President Andrew Jackson imposes a tariff on all imported goods. The vice president, John C. Calhoun, does not appreciate this. For the reason that this is not healthy for the U.S. Economy.
  • Feel the Force
  • This is not fair! You cannot make the military collect our tax and no one else's!
  • Before he became president, Jackson rallied for states' rights, but once he became POTUS, he dropped all respect for states. He became the federal rallyer. Calhoun noticed and immediately resigned from his position.
  • Nullify the Bully
  • The merchants and landowners of the South, were not okay with the idea that they would be taxed for importing goods. They had a very expensive European lifestyle, making them hate the idea of a tax on their favorite goods.
  • Compromisation Nation
  • We will secede and create our own union, if that's what it has to come too.
  • No we will compromise, for that's what we do when we cannot agree.
  • After South Carolina passed the Nullification Act, Jackson decided to make the military collect their taxes, so they could not refuse.
  • The South once again nullifies an act of the President, but this time it's the force act. They are refusing to have their stupid taxes forcefully collected.
  • Finally, after all of the nullifying and forcing, they come to a compromise. They have a compromised tariff which was not what Jackson wanted, but not what the South wanted. But the South lobbied for states' rights, and that's what matters.
