When Andrew Jackson lost in the 1824 election for president even though he was the choice of the largest number of voters he wondered if democracy existed in America He made it his goal to create a real democracy However Andrew Jacksons term of presidency was a move away from democracy As president Andrew Jackson took advantage of the power given to him and acted undemocratically Sometimes his vetoes only hurt the people of the United States Jackson liked to use his power to veto For example he gave a veto to the second national bank of the United States The bank had already been set up and was approved by congress but Jackson did not believe in the national bank His veto to the national bank only hurt Americans by one of the most severe financial crises in the history of the United States and a division in poor and rich The Panic of 1837 was one of the most severe financial crises in American history It caused failure of banks businesses and loss of many jobs This hurt the lives of almost every American during that time During his presidency Jackson also passed a Force Bill This bill allowed him to use whatever force necessary to execute laws The purpose of this was to send troops to South Carolina and spite the vice president whom he hated Jackson also didnt make his decisions very carefully Secretary of State Van Buren advised Jackson not to appoint a collector because the collector had criminal tendencies Jackson appointed the collector anyways because he had supported Jackson during the election Over the next few months the collector stole over 12 million dollars from the US government Jackson was ridiculed by fellow officeholders after that incident Jackson was known to appoint friends and loyal party members who helped him get elected even though they were not qualified for the job While appointing new friends to government positions
