President Jackson is NOT worth being on the $20 bill! My two wonderful sources helped me realize that. I'm going to meet some of my friends that agree with me.
Jacksonian Democracy: the idea that the common people should control the government.
His use of this topic does not make him worthy of being on the $20 bill because he used it for his own personal gain to win the election instead of doing it for the American citizens.
I agree with him over there. Andrew Jackson used this topic so that any white man could vote, which allowed him to win the presidency election.
Spoils System: the practice of rewarding political supporters with government jobs.
Andrew Jackson replaced me with one of his democrat supporters! He doesn't deserve to be on the $20 bill, he cost me my job!
Indian Removal Act: This law allowed the president to make treaties in which American Indians in the East traded their lands for new territory on the Great Plains.
Andrew Jackson kicked me out of my home! He got on the $20 bill for ruining our lives!
States' Rights: the rights and powers held by individual US states rather than by the federal government.
Andrew Jackson supported states' rights during the Indian Removal Act, but completely ignored them when South Carolina threatened secession! He got on the $20 bill for almost losing a state. Makes sense, right?
War on National Bank/Economic Decisions: when Andrew Jackson vetoed the renewal of the national bank because he believed it had too much money and power.
Because of what Andrew Jackson did, our nation's economy is suffering. How can a man that destroyed the national bank get put on the $20 bill?
