  • Andrew Jackson does not deserve to be on the $20 bill.
  • Ok, I get it now, but why does that make it so that he doesn't deserve to be on the $20 bill?
  • The Indian Removal Act was an act that was passed by Congress and signed by President Andrew Jackson on May 28, 1830.
  • What is the Indian Removal Act?
  • Andrew Jackson does not deserve to be on the $20 bill because of the way that he used the Indian Removal Act.
  • Ok.
  • It said that the Cherokee Indians had to leave their lands because they had gold on their lands that the states wanted.
  • Ok, but that's one mistake, I mean, he's human.
  • Yea, ima pretend like I know what that is.😂
  • OK, I'm think I'm starting to get it.
  • Because they had a constitution of their own, and the Supreme Court agreed that they could stay, but Jackson went against what they said and kicked the Indians out.
  • There's two I can tell you bout, like Jacksonian Democracy.
  • 😂That's OK, I didn't know either. But it basically is political power for all people, or majority rules.
  • Try me.
  • Jackson used this type of democracy to get more followers. He told them he was just like them, which he was, but he didn't really have their best interests at heart, he just wanted to win the election.
  • I'm sorry, but that is what anyone one would do to win the election to be the PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES.
  • Fair point. BUT... this last one will definitely change your mind. It's called the Spoils System.
  • Here it goes then.
  • ...
  • The Spoils System is where the winning party of the election gives government jobs to relatives, friends, and supporters. And merit, education, and experience take a back seat. So, that is sooo unconstitutional, which is why he doesn't deserve to be on the $20 bill.
  • Yea, just 3 dots.😂
  • OK, you've convinced me now. 😂You just don't give up do you.
  • Let's do both. But no $20's.😂
  • No ma'am.😂 But in all seriousness mall or movies?😂
  • Amen to that.😂
