Andrew Jackson was a badmamajama. He stood against the establishment and went down in history because he didn't take any crap from anybody.
KingHenrikLundqvist

Con

Andrew Jackson was a horrible man who should be synonymous with ethnic cleansing and Adolf Hitler. I will display why in the next two rounds.

Andrew Jackson was a fairly bad individual. Though historians concede he did do some good things, his decision forced Indians to relocate from the Eastern U.S. to western territories, which caused many of them to die. He aggressively defended slavery, was ruthless politically, and even killed individuals he had grudges with with his pistol.

His attempt to payoff the entire national debt and keep America debt-free was a dismal failure. At the end of his presidency America was hit by a painful depression, causing national debt to skyrocket.

He was also one of the most ill Presidents in American history, suffering from chronic headaches, abdominal pains and a hacking cough. Earlier in his life he took a musket ball to chest, which penetrated into his lung. It was never removed.

Tuberculosis and heart failure took his life June 8, 1845.
