President Andrew Jackson destroyed central banking (federal reserve of today), causing the budget to balance and having the U.S. dollar backed by precious metals. Ushering in an influx of money, and an economic boom. Tubman did nothing of the like; I suggest you read history. Especially United States history if you live here.
you dont have to be a president to be on currency, it doesn't matter and its not a rule in the slightest, also harriett Tubman was a civil rights hero, Andrew Jackson was an ******
Benjamin Franklin wasn't a president either..
"also many more people can tell you about tubman then Jackson. "
- One reason I support it. I didn't even know jackson was a president until I was 16. I didn't know who was on the money.
"on a side note, checking this app again, looks like most people left, debate.org has been rough. haha. people there are professional debaters who don't like me for some reason... "
- Many people did. I don't know why I can't commit to it. The trolls left too. I,guess the rest are no fun for them.
- I haven't made any arguments yet. It seems like it takes a lot more time .. . that I,kinda,don't have.
"and wtf happened to my goodbye post? "
-Probably got deleted. Admin. woke up and finally got really active (well sort of).
I thought it was going to be fazed in in 2020. Like the new 100. There are still old 100s, but the new,ones are printed now.
America was going to make more money anyway, why would it be so expensive to change the design.
Though you are right, it does look/seemed fake.
I thought it was just a fake ad when I first saw it haha
I disagreed with the statement, but I do agree that Harriet Tubman should not be placed on a $20 bill. For what reason should she be? She was an important figure, yes, and she's made an impact in our history. But do they realize how EXPENSIVE that would be?? It was a good idea that was brought up to have her placed on maybe a $2 bill or have a limited edition for her. That should be enough. To change the entire bill today, no, that's unnecessary. Leave it as is. There was nothing wrong with it, money is money regardless of who is on it. You still need it to pay the bills.
name a bad thing tubman did.
name a bad thing Jackson did.
you should see why the choice was made.
Jackson was by far the least president on a bill, putting in Tubman may have been PC, but that's not why I like it.
also many more people can tell you about tubman then Jackson.
I think a $25 bill with tubman would have been the best choice, keep them both.
on a side note, checking this app again, looks like most people left, debate.org has been rough. haha. people there are professional debaters who don't like me for some reason...
and wtf happened to my goodbye post?
this was the only topic worth posting too.
* I ment taking Jackson off the 20 dollar bill not Jefferson, my bad
I was unaware that Jefferson was being replaced. How odd.
Andrew Jackson died in 1845, he was controversial with how he dealt with the Native Americans. But he did destroy the central bank (which is perpetual war debt). Jackson was against centralized private banks like Thomas Jefferson was. Hamilton was for a central bank and the continuation of national debt ( that's what federal reserve loves)
one of my personal favorite quotes
" If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.... the issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." -Thomas Jefferson
My argument is against taking out Jefferson instead of Hamilton, I don't like Hamilton. I think a reason they kept him because he supported centralized private banking (today's federal reserve)
I don't really agree or disagree with it. However, Hamilton deserved to stay (as the founder of the first bank) and I agree that Lincoln could have lost a bill. He has so much already! But apparently (I think) they are adding woman to the back of some bills too?
I didn't mind Jackson on there, but I don't care that Harriet is replacing him. I think it is funny that the reason Jackson is on there in the first place (1928 . . . I think) is still speculated and not known. He replaced Cleveland. I thought it was ironic because he hated the banks so much due to some bad investments in younger days. Also, he is among some of the most disliked presidents.
I kinda wished Martin Luther King was on some money, but he is a man so he wasn't in the running.
Hahaha, in my opinion they should have replaced Alexander Hamilton
Agreed, though Franklin wasn't either and look at where he is! Also, Lincoln is on two different types of currency. If someone must be replaced, it has to be the 5$ Lincoln and if someone will do the replacing, I would say not Tubman. Otherwise, a cheesy joke I know wouldn't have the same flavor.
Lincoln was once accused of murder, but using wisdom and quick thinking, he pulled a penny out of his pockets, proving he was in-a-cent.
Jackson did destroy centralized banking in the US at the time and proceeded to influx the wealth of the nation. I think Tubman did a remarkable thing with the underground railroad, but I don't think it equates to anything Andrew Jackson did
I would agree with you PA888
I never knew alot about Jackson except hr dueled alot of people and he removed the national debt in a way that was not universally agreed upon. Harriet Tubman was not a president nor is she the most qualified woman person to be on the bill. However, she may be the most qualified black peraon to be on the bill. I guess that is where this notion of her going on the bill comes from. They want an African-American and a woman on the bill to pursue liberal agenda of becoming non-racist. I am not excited not am I really hurt by the fact she is gettimg on the bill. I am a conservative.
