Andrew Jackson: King of Pranks :)))
The Spoils Sytsem :)))
The Spoils System is like a do good and good will come back to you kinda deal. By definition, it's a system that rewards someone for helping someone else get to the position they're at. For example, Andrew Jackson handed out important government jobs to people who supported him throughout his campaign. To him, it didn't matter if you were super smart or dumb as a rock, if you helped him become president, you got a saweet job.
The Nullification Crisis
The Nullification Crisis began when South Carolina stood up for the southern states' hurting economy. South Carolina threatened to secede from the Union if Jackson did not remove tariffs on imported goods. That did not fly with Jackson, he replied saying that if South Caroline didn't chill out, he would send in the U.S. army and hang John C. Calhoun. After that, South Carolina backed off and an agreement was reached to lower the tariffs rather than remove them completely.
The National Bank
Andrew Jackson did not necessarily hate the idea of having a National Bank. What he really disliked about it was the person who ran it, Nicholas Biddle. Knowing that Biddle was running the bank, Jackson wanted that bank outta here, so, without any sort of legal permission, he totally drained funds out of The National Bank and into many smaller state banks. Once Jackson had done the job, the National Bank was no more, all he got for punishment was a slap on the wrist.
Duuuuuuuuuuude! I landed a sick job in the government today. I think it has to do with the U.S. army or whatever, i'm really not sure because i haven't ever been to any sort of school and I am 45! Shout out to homeboy Andrew for rewarding my hard work and support to make him President<3
ARE YOU KIDDING MeEEeEEeEeE??!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!??!??!?!? This Jackson punk is out of his mind! Threatening to hang John C. CalhoOUouOOUouon???!!??!?!? Why can't he just lower these stinkin' tariffs, our economy is taking more punches than we're throwing and it's getting old. Get real Jackson, South Carolina is ever so close to seceding from your lame union.
