  • Andrew Jackson is NOT worthy of being on the $20 bill.
  • Jackson used the Jacksonian Democracy, which is giving voting rights to all white males. He only did this in order to gain support from common people and win the election of 1828.
  • Wow! That means that uneducated people could vote. That does not make him worthy of being on the $20 bill.
  • Also, he used the Spoils System, which is putting supporters, relatives, and friends in government positions. This made people happy with their decision of electing Jackson, but it was not very productive for the government.
  • Yikes! Uneducated and inexperienced people in government positions?! Jackson definitely should not be on the $20 bill.
  • There was nothing really good about his Indian Removal Policy. He forced Native Americans off of their land just because Americans desired the land.
  • That is another reason why he shouldn't be on the $20 bill.
  • The only good thing that Jackson did during his presidency was believing in state's rights, which are the guaranteed rights and power in government that a state has. He supported Georgia when they were in a dispute with the federal government, which helped him gain supporters.
  • He still doesn't deserve to be on the $20 bill, but at least he did something good.
  • Jackson had a big role in the War on National Bank, which was the opposition of the second national bank. He put federal funds into state banks in order to try to destroy the national bank. He did this because he wanted to gain national support.
  • Why would he do that? National banks are beneficial to America. Overall, Jackson is most certainly not worthy of being on the $20 bill.
