President Andrew Jackson


Jackson: Zero for "spoils system"

Andrew Jackson created a system that rewards supporters and political allies of winning candidates with government jobs whether they are qualified or not, resulting in the cabinet agreeing with everything he says even though he could be wrong.

Jackson: Zero for destroying the national bank

He's a zero for this because the national bank was helping the economy so basically Jackson is killing the economy.

Jackson: Zero for forcing indians off their lands causing the "trail of tears"

Jackson is a zero for this because that was their land he was fine with them being there until someone found gold on Comanche land.


Jackson: Zero for the nullification crisis

This ordinance declared by the power of the State that the federal tariffs of 1828 and 1832 were unconstitutional and therefore nullified within the sovereign boundaries of South Carolina.

Andrew Jackson don't care!!!

In 1830, Jackson passed the Indian removal act to force the Indians off of their land onto reservations west of the Mississippi River (Oklahoma) just to look for some gold on their land, and he didn't feel bad.
