Andrew Jackson was a bad president. Should he really be on the $20 dollar bill. I thought only good presidents should be coined or minted.

Andrew Jackson was not a bad president. Yes, he did some things that were not quite right. However, the things that he did was socially acceptable in that time period. It is wrong to judge what the presidents did back then, to what is acceptable now.

Since you have not been responding, I am not sure how to continue this debate......I was really looking forward to it.
I hope that you will be able to answer for the next round.

A major general in the War of 1812, Jackson became a national hero when he defeated the British at New Orleans. Jackson's presidency held a high moralistic tone. Andrew Jackson did what he thought was right for the Americans at the time.
In the 1836 election, Old Hickory left the White House even more popular than when he had entered it. Jackson"s success seemed to have vindicated the still-new democratic experiment, and his supporters had built a well-organized Democratic Party that would become a formidable force in American politics.

Fasttrack: If your opponent forfeits you can just say extend arguments or you can actually keep arguing in favor of Andrew Jackson. Both are acceptable.
