Andrew Jackson Quotes

Andrew Jackson was the seventh President of the United States of America. Jackson was a politician and army general. He defeated the Indians and the British in different battles.

Inspirational Quotes

Any man worth his salt will stick up for what he believes right, but it takes a slightly better man to acknowledge instantly and without reservation that he is in error.
Andrew Jackson

You must stick up for what you believe in. If everyone just stays silent then nothing will ever change. I believe we are experiencing this today, we are excepting certain changes we know to be wrong. If you want to be a better man, you must understand when you are wrong. I think in our culture we easily believe we know what is best.

All the rights secured to the citizens under the Constitution are worth nothing, and a mere bubble, except guaranteed to them by an independent and virtuous Judiciary.
Andrew Jackson

The rights given to the people are an illusion. No one is granted those rights. It is up to a judge to decide if they have the right or not.

As long as our government is administered for the good of the people, and is regulated by their will; as long as it secures to us the rights of persons and of property, liberty of conscience and of the press, it will be worth defending.
Andrew Jackson

If the government listens to the people and protects the right of the people, their property, and free speech it is worth fight for. We should want to keep these things, unfortunately we are slipping.

Mischief springs from the power which the moneyed interest derives from a paper currency which they are able to control, from the multitude of corporations with exclusive privileges... which are employed altogether for their benefit.
Andrew Jackson

Evil arrives when a central place or persons are allowed to control the money supply. The people who control the money supply receive all the benefits. They are able to put corporations into power, even if the corporation doesn't have the best product or service. Anyone allowed to control the money supply, such as the Federal Reserve, are allowed to give privileges to who they see fit. The banks and corporations benefit endlessly from this system. The intention was to only have gold and silver legal currency, which is harder to manipulate.

Andrew Jackson Quotes

Every good citizen makes his country's honor his own, and cherishes it not only as precious but as sacred. He is willing to risk his life in its defense and its conscious that he gains protection while he gives it.
Andrew Jackson

I agree with this, only as long as the country in defense is justified in their actions. I would only want to protect a country as long as they uphold liberty, free speech, and peace. Why would I want to defend a country that puts people into harms way and is corrupt.

I feel in the depths of my soul that it is the highest, most sacred, and most irreversible part of my obligation to preserve the union of these states, although it may cost me my life.
Andrew Jackson

Andrew Jackson felt that our country and values were so important, he would give his life to defend them. He actually did just that. When he was fighting the Second Bank of the United States, there was an attempted assassination on his life. The guns misfired and he lived.

The planter, the farmer, the mechanic, and the laborer... form the great body of the people of the United States, they are the bone and sinew of the country men who love liberty and desire nothing but equal rights and equal laws.
Andrew Jackson

The workers are the heart and prosperity of the United States. They create the money, industry, economy, and wealth. We must uphold equal rights and liberty for all men. Without these essential rights, there is tyranny, and government control.

The duty of government is to leave commerce to its own capital and credit as well as all other branches of business, protecting all in their legal pursuits, granting exclusive privileges to none.
Andrew Jackson

Commerce must be left to the people. If government is given this power they can manipulate the economy and create benefits for themselves and their friends. When the economy is left to the people no one receives benefits. Everyone is given an equal opportunity to create the best product or service at the best price. This is what creates prosperity.

If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.
Andrew Jackson

If the Union of the states is broken it will lead to war. We know this to be true because when Abraham Lincoln was president this happened and led to a civil war.

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.
Andrew Jackson

The United States in its founding was an experiment. Never before has a country created such freedom as the United States. Very quickly corruption spread to our government. Politicians began giving out promises for winning elections. Our values were never implemented fully, just very slowly taken away. It took hundreds of years to resort to complete tyranny.
