  • Ok lets start with the question of the day.
  • By Jesse Serrato RiveraAndrew Jackson is not worthy of being on the $20 bill because he is self-centered, only nice to his supporters, and destroyed the economy.
  • Jacksonian Democracy: The idea that the common people should control the government
  • I don't think he should because he only thinks about himself for example he used the Jacksonian Democracy to allow people to vote so they can vote for him.
  • Do you think Andrew Jackson should be on the $20 bill?
  • Spoils System:The practice of rewarding political supporters with government jobs.
  • I think he made the wrong choice by rewarding his supporters with jobs because most were inexperienced, which is another reason he should be on the $20 bill.
  • What do you think about the spoils system?
  • Indian Removeal Act:An act where the president made the native Americans leave for their land.
  • I think it was very rude making the Indians leave during th winter causing 1/4 of them to die and all just for land.
  • How about the Indian Removal Act?
  • States Right:Andrew Jackson placed tariffs on people but it only effects the south making them angry..
  • States Rights made the south angry and almost making South Carolina leave. I don't think this was very nice and definitely a reasonhe shouldn't be on the $20 bill.
  • And States Right?
  • War on National Bank/Economic Decisions: Making a new bank to allow the people to use it because Andrew Jackson caused Nicholas Biddle to go out of business. The making money worth less.
  • I'd agree with you because this was a very stupid idea making money worth less and it messed with our economy causingthe panic of 1837. So after discussing each topic I came to aconclusion that heshould not be onthe $20 bill.
  • War on National Bank/Economic Decisions was bad I'd say what about you?
