Haha..my plan is working. I allowed uneducated people to vote for my own personal gain!
States' RightsThe Tariff of Abominations lead to John C. Calhoun putting forward the idea of nullification. The tariff affected the South negatively, so Calhoun believed they had a right to nullify the tariffs. Jackson supported states' rights but believed it could split our nation.
Jacksonian Democracythe idea that the common people should control government
Jacksonian Democracy was used for Jackson's own benefit. Although it progressed our democracy it allowed uneducated people to vote. Therefore, this does not make Jackson worthy of being on the $20 bill.
Yay! Jackson gave us the right to vote! Let's vote for him...
Umm, excuse me. What are you doing here?
Spoils Systemthe practice of rewarding political supporters with government jobs
The spoils system does not make Jackson worthy of being on the $20 bill because it allowed uneducated and inexperienced people to work in our government. Also, the majority of them strongly supported Jackson leaving him with more power and an unfair advantage.
We voted for Andrew Jackson! So now we get to work around the whitehouse, without any past experience
The Indian Removal Act was cruel and definetly did not make Jackson worthy of being on the $20 bill. He forcefully took Native Americans out of their homes and land they had been living on for centuries.
This land is now ours!
For the most part, Jackson was willing to" compromise" with the states when it came to their rights. However many of these compromises are still seen as harmful and unconstitutional. For instance, Jackson took away the tariffs but released the Force Bill which allowed compulsory collection of import duties from the south.
You have to listen to what I say now give me your import duties!
Bank Wara campaign started by Andrew Jackson to destroy the Second Bank of the United States after his reelection convinced him that his opposition to the bank had won national support
Jackson vetoes renewed charter for second bank, to lower its economic power. Resulting in use of only state banks. These "pet banks" begin to print their own money which causes inflation. President Jackson left the country with inflation and a dormant national bank, he does not deserve to be on the $20 bill.
