President Andrew Jackson in Steps To Salvation

President Andrew Jackson in Steps To Salvation

For all of his faults, one of my favorite US Presidents is Andrew Jackson because he understood the dangers of centralized banking and stood up courageously for the everyday working man and woman. Possibly due to his own humble and tragic childhood, Jackson was a champion for the rights of all individuals to live in freedom with plenty of opportunities to succeed.

That is why he (along with Abraham Lincoln) is featured prominently in Steps One and Two of my book. Nathan Rothschild tells the story of President Andrew Jackson during his exam answer in Mr. Bauer’s history class:

“In the 19th century two American presidents, Andrew Jackson and Abraham Lincoln fought back and won against the centralized banking system of their time, The Bank of the United States. Jackson was a war hero. He defeated the British Army in the Battle of New Orleans during the War of 1812. The troops under his command nicknamed him ‘Old Hickory’ because he was ‘as tough as hickory.’ He respected the people’s will because of his own humble start in life. When he was a boy, he’d been a prisoner of war during the American Revolution until his widowed mother rescued him. Then she died and left him an orphan.

“Jackson always stood up for the rights of everyday working people. This helped him win the popular vote and an electoral majority during the Election of 1828. He believed the Bank of the United States gave too much power over the American economy to private bankers. That became the main issue of the 1832 Election. Jackson won re-election while he fought with Nicholas Biddle, the country’s first central banker. People called him ‘Czar Nicholas.’ Biddle made life very hard for small businesses and individuals by raising interest rates and controlling the money supply.

“But President Andrew Jackson won. He destroyed the US Bank and paid off the national debt. It’s part of his unique legacy because he’s the only president in the history of the United States to do it. It is kind of funny that even though Jackson always liked gold and not paper money, he still ended up on the American twenty-dollar bill.”

Then later in Step Two, Advanced Soul and former US President Andrew Jackson applauds Israeli Prime Minister Eyal Grad for the creation of the Citizens Lottery System and offers this brief history lesson that includes an important point about the nature of humanity:

“Mr. Grad, as you may already know during my time on earth I was known as the first working-class president,” Jackson continued. “As an orphaned young man who raised himself out of poverty after my experience as a POW during the American Revolution, the plight of the common man was always foremost on my mind. Oh yes, I did some things I’m not proud of during my time on earth, including killing thousands of native Americans at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend. While in human form, we’re capable of exceptional acts of heroism and accomplishment, and regrettable acts of barbarism and cruelty. I was certainly no exception to this rule when I inhabited an earthly body known as Andrew Jackson, seventh President of the United States.

“After I defeated the British in the Battle of New Orleans, many Americans called me ‘The Second George Washington’ and ‘The Hero.’ It wasn’t long before I heeded the call to run for the highest office in the land because it was my opportunity to take a stand against the centralized banking system. Centralized banks controlled the circulation and availability of money to the detriment of decent, everyday working people. As a relentless champion for common folks I was determined to put an end to this money monopoly.

“When I decided to run for President I knew I had to base my platform on revoking the charter of the Bank of the United States because it had too much power over the American economy through private bankers. We’d seen this throughout history with centralized banks like the Bank of England and the money traders of Biblical and Roman times. To a humble frontiersman like me, the Bank of the United States—with its board of directors tied to industry and manufacturing—was naturally biased in favor of the urban and industrial northern states. It was also unconstitutional and antithetical to the principles of individual liberty and equality.”

I highly recommend watching this excellent documentary on the exceptional life of President Andrew Jackson. There’s much more in the novel about him and his accomplishments on earth, so this is just a small taste.
