Andrew Jackson should not be on the 20 dollar bill.

Did you know that Andrew Jackson created the Jacksonian Democracy that allowed all white men to vote, just so he could gain more votes to become the new president?
Oh, so that was how he used the Jacksonian democracy to his advantage during the presidential election
This is one of the reasons why Andrew Jackson should not be on the 20 dollar bill
What are the other reasons?
He also used an Indian Removal Act that allowed the president to grant unsettled lands west of the Mississippi, for the Indians to give their land in return.
He ended up using it to his advantage by removing federal employees that were considered to be political opponents and replaced them with his won supporters.
Well, Andrew Jackson used a spoils system that was when the political party that won the election would reward its campaign workers and supporters.
He used this to his advantage to get the gold the Indians had in their land and to expand the size of the United States
He used this to his advantage because he believed that the bank symbolized that only upper class men represented the US and since he only saw himself as a "regular person", he thought that he would gain more supporters.
He used this to his advantage because he supported states rights, which most of the people also did, which lead to him getting more votes.
States rights are kept by a regional government that was in charge of only a small area.
Lastly, the War on National Bank was a campaign he started in 1833, which was created to destroy the second band of the United States.
So, because Andrew Jackson did all of this just so he could be elected president, is not right and him being on the 20 dollar bill does not represent a good leader of the United States.
