    Andrew Jackson was a fierce opponent of the Federal Reserve Bank. Why would you want to dishonor his memory by supporting his likeness on a Federal Reserve Note?

    Are you trying to insult him?

    No, Joseph Stalin did not have such miracles of providence follow him.

    Also, perhaps the will of God sucks. Jesus wanted to be brutally tortured, humiliated, and crucified. The Apostles and many early Christians got brutally murdered.

    If you don't believe in an abrahamic God, whatever higher power you have must be kind of cruel as well because he/she permits all of this.

    But perhaps they are so rewarded and glorified in the next life that they are very grateful for the martyrdom and pain they suffered in this life.

    If Christian tradition is correct, Jesus is glad about what happened to him, and the Martyrs who shared that fate are very glad it happened as well.

    Most other faiths have similar positive views regarding suffering and death.

    You actually might be right about that because some people wanted to bury him in a sarcophagus resembling what Caesar corpses were put in, and Jackson was very opposed to that.

    Come to Nashville and you can tour his Estate, and chortle and caper about when you see the tiny boxes behind the house where he kept his slaves.

    We must not disrespect Saint Andrew Jackson, for He also was an annointed man, full of miracles:
    7th President

    He fought the Battle of New Orleans with untrained Plowman against the most well equipped and trained and powerful military on Earth at the time. He won the battle with up to 3,000 British casualties and only eight Americans died.

    People who witnessed the battle said it was miraculous , and almost like the bullets of the Americans were guided to hit their targets and the bullets of the British were guided to miss. People said it was like watching Divine fire rain down upon the enemy.

    Jackson was sabered in the face by a British officer in the Revolutionary War and all of his family died except for him in that war (including both parents while He was still a child)..

    He rose from the muck of poverty and was shot in the heart during a duel and walked away like he wasn't even harmed.

    He also was the first president where there was an attempt made upon his life and the man who shot at him fired two rounds. The Caps exploded but the bullets didn't go anywhere, and the chances of that happening are quite a few thousand to one.

    The man who restrained the Assassin was Davy Crockett of all people, and he said something like "I wanted to meet the world's dumbest criminal and now I'm looking at him".

    He was very uneducated and unqualified to be president, yet people saw him as anointed by God. His life contained destiny that could not have taken place by chance. His victory at New Orleans was so amazing we have to search Old Testament scriptures to find such battles.

    Although he is unrecognized by the church, I know that he is a patron saint of America and a great friend to have!

    He and Kaiser D work together to Trump, Trump , Trump the enemies of God! :

    No, I'm right about that because Jackson shut down the Second Bank of the U.S. with a veto. He detested the idea of a federal bank, and would hate the idea of being featured prominently on a federal reserve note..

    So why do you want to dishonor his memory?

    All aggrandized myth no doubt. People of that era were even more uneducated than Trump followers.

    Because money is more blessed as well as the person who carries it if it has Andy's face on it.

    He might not feel honored by it , but when he sees the good luck it brings people, that is the sacrifice He is willing to take!

    Also, beings that He accomplished the impossible, that could still motivate people to believe in God, Destiny, or the power of believing in oneself, even if He was an ass hole.
