What the Occupiers Should Rant: Face On the $20 Bill, Says it All


by Tom Valentine


Quiz question—whose face is on the $20 Bill? More importantly, why do many, including me, consider Andrew Jackson the greatest of the presidents? He vetoed the banksters, that’s why. Have we forgotten?

Where the hell has the Andrew Jackson Society been in this huge occupy streets fight?

Andrew Jackson opposed the national bank and abolished it because:

  • it is unconstitutional;
  • it concentrated an excessive amount of the nation’s financial strength into a single institution;
  • it exposed the government to control by “foreign interests”;
  • it exercised too much control over members of Congress;

How can intelligent protesters not be waving his image on posters? If a media whore were to confront me at a rally, I would use the Socratic method (answer question with another question) for public response. It might go like this:

Fox news (with talking points to destroy protest reason in hand):
“Sir, why are you protesting?”

Me, (holding up a twenty, also called a Jackson, to camera). First thought, not spoken—“You ignorant presstitute! “Do you know enough to tell me why Andrew Jackson is honored with his likeness on this bill?”

I’d bet a bunch of Jackson’s on the reporter not knowing.

Not everyone was fooled by the bank schemers of 1913; This political cartoon was prominently displayed in 1912 as the crooks were gearing up for installing the Fed. Can't say people were not warned.

How about a making a phone call into Hannity, or Limbaugh, along the same lines—screener might not get you, but be sure that the excessively long delay to kill button will. Rush might even know the answer, so Hannity would be my choice.

Can we make this quiz go viral on the net?

Andrew Jackson is not revered for anything else; he sent Amerinds to reservations and won some battles as a general, but it is for his strong, independent stand against the bleeping banksters that he is known. How could we forget?

Neocons in their religious swoon do not think about Old Hickory, after all he was a founding Democrat.

Filthy politicians and nasty banksters were on a roll in Jackson’s day much as they are now so he said:

“I weep for the liberty of my country when I see at this early day of its successful experiment that corruption has been imputed to many members of the House of Representatives, and the rights of the people have been bartered for promises of office.”

Guts and brains in the 7th president. We miss them, and should not let this memory die.

Elected president in 1828, Jackson supported a small and limited federal government. He strengthened the power of the presidency, which he saw as spokesman for the entire population, as opposed to Congressmen from a specific small district.

Strongly against the national bank, he vetoed the renewal of its charter and ensured its collapse. Whigs and moralists denounced his aggressive enforcement of the Indian Removal Act, which resulted in the forced relocation of thousands of Native American tribes to Indian Territory (now Oklahoma). Historians acknowledge his protection of popular democracy and individual liberty for United States citizens, and sometimes criticize him for his support for slavery and for his role in Indian removal
