  • Hi, do you remember me? It's Miranda Salazar, the one who thought that Andrew Jackson shouldn't be on the $20 bill, because he was selfish and didn't think about his people.
  • Yes of course! And did you find that out from, and The Brittanica Encyclopedia?
  • Yeah that's exactly where I found it!
  • I'm telling you, the way he used the Jacksonian Democracy to allow all people to vote, just so he could have more supporters and win the vote as president was not a great move, he basically tricked all of his supporters into thinking he was a good president, and doesn't deserve to be on the $20 bill!
  • I mean I guess so.
  • Honestly, Andrew Jackson wasn't the worst president, like the way he used the Spoils System. Giving jobs to every person of different riches was smart, because it kept his people from rioting about jobs, and allowed lower class people to earn more money, by getting a higher class job.
  • You know, one thing he did that was extremely wrong is the Indian Removal Act. He should not have taken the Indian's land just for their gold, or because they weren't "true' Americans. That was their land, and he shouldn't have taken it, which is why he should not be on the $20 bill.
  • It also wasn't right of Andrew Jackson to use the states' rights and only tax the South, and not tax the North, and then continue to not side with anyone, only because he wanted the federal government to vote for. So, once again he used his power for his own convenience., and he should not have been on the $20 bill.
  • So, finally he should not be on the $20 bill, because of how he delt with the War on National Bank/Economic Decisions. Because he viewed banks as "unconstitutional" he closed it, causing economy to go down, , so he put his own decisions before this peoples, without thinking about the consequences.
