You know you're badass when your on your death bed you can confidentially say "I killed the bank"

He was the reason America became rich and wealthy. The central bank -> FED are the ones who altered that and drew everyone into debt. -> IE: Debt is slavery without prison guards or walls.

Perhaps the most criminal president in US history, **** INDIANS, **** THE CONSITUTION TOO. He didn't destroy the Central bank cause it was the right thing to do, but because he hated the people behind it.

>implying the federal reserve/national bank is a good thing.
fyi its not, the fedreal reserve has the power to exclusivly print americas money any time they want; which is unconstitutional. they then loan that money out to the government and banks and charge massive interests because the fed reserve is a massive bank and thats how banks make money by creating debt and collecting on that debt. your taxes dont go to the government they go to the federal reserve as payment for the money that the fed loans to the government. furthermore our money is backed by nothing we use to be gold standard (backed by gold) and when we where we experianced the greatest boom in industrial growth that any nation has ever had. oh it was beautiful.

Oka, that story of him getting shot in the chest, tasting he blood, then sending his shooter to hell has swayed me. Andrew Jackson is a ******* badass.
User avatar #22 to #20 - suprconfederateman (12/06/2012) [-]
My favorite part is when he enlists pirates to fight with him ******* BADASS, but i do say i quite enjoy that Theodore Roosevelt picture i think ill save that one.
User avatar #23 to #22 - calawesome (12/06/2012) [-]
As long as you admit Roosevelt is a badass too, I think we can get past this little tiff.
User avatar #21 to #20 - calawesome (12/06/2012) [-]
Okay*
User avatar #24 to #21 - suprconfederateman (12/06/2012) [-]

Homie owned a bear and once caught four snakes his son had brought home in the middle of a meeting. That's badass.
User avatar #26 to #25 - suprconfederateman (12/06/2012) [-]
**** yeah it is Theodore is a very badass dude
User avatar #27 to #26 - calawesome (12/06/2012) [-]
A quote about after his death.

"Death had to take him sleeping, for if Roosevelt had been awake there would have been a fight".

User avatar #28 to #27 - suprconfederateman (12/06/2012) [-]
pretty much sums him up he was an all american badass
User avatar #29 to #28 - calawesome (12/06/2012) [-]
well said.

Roosevelt didn't try to commit genocide against the Native Americans, which automatically elevated him.

Andrew Jackson was the first president on whom an assassination attempt was made. A man named Richard Lawrence approached Jackson with two pistols both of which, for some reason, misfired. With the possibility of an assassination taken off the table, Jackson proceeded to beat Lawrence near death with his cane until Jackson's aides pulled him off the assassin.

User avatar #3 - lemurdecatta (12/05/2012) [-]
I dont know why everyone thinks Jackson was such a badass, all of his policies ****** up the country for the next president, Van Buren.
User avatar #6 to #3 - CRosBY (12/06/2012) [-]
Nobody could kill him though.
User avatar #47 to #6 - lemurdecatta (12/06/2012) [-]
Hundreds of Americans have survived duels and there is a fair amount of generals that have been presidents. Jackson, not that badass. You guys just make him seem like it.
User avatar #52 to #47 - CRosBY (12/06/2012) [-]
Look, nobody cares.
User avatar #53 to #52 - lemurdecatta (12/06/2012) [-]
But you do. You acknowledged my comment and REPLIED to it.

User avatar #34 - damandan ONLINE (12/06/2012) [-]
It could be argued that he saved the indians. Where ever the americans went, the indian died. He also had adopted an Indian son

Andrew Jackson was quite the criminal president, and quite a bit of an asshole, but also undeniably badass.
