This paper explains that former Indian fighter Andrew Jackson, who was a blunt and outspoken man, spearheaded one of the most aggressive and far reaching administrations in American history. Next, the author reviews his use of harsh tactics, if he did not get his way, in his fight against the the Second National Bank and the Maysville bill, in his expulsion of the Indian nations to out of state territory even though he claimed to care for the native population. The paper also discusses Jackson's ferocious pursuit of America's debtors abroad. The paper underscores that Jackson used the power of the presidency with disregard for the opinions of his advisers and the public in pursuit of what he believed was the national interest. The paper contains MLA-style footnotes in place of a bibliography at the end.
From the Paper:"The Second Bank of the United States charter was due for renewal. When the bill passed Jackson employed a tactic he would use often during his presidency, he vetoed it. As a result of his highly combative personality and his constant struggle with congress Jackson would go on to veto more legislation than any previous president. After issuing the veto Jackson explained his reasons for killing the bill in his July 10, 1832 bank veto address . He called the bank unconstitutional and claimed that it gave unequal benefits to those few who were lucky enough to hold stock in it. He claimed that the monopoly of the federal governments favor was unjust and against the spirit of fair competition."
