After his second election, Roosevelt made some bad, public decisions like trying to ‘pack the court’ by attempting to appoint six judges who would vote in his favour. Interestingly, the Supreme Court voted in favour of some policies of the New Deal like pensions in the Social Security Act. There was minor opposition from within the Democratic Party as well.
Andrew Jackson was a villain for a few reasons. One reason why Jackson was a villain is because he put America at risk. After he won this first term as president, Jackson put his supporters in top government positions. This meant that Jackson put less qualified people in charge of making the decisions that are necessary for America’s success. Furthermore, even after the Peggy Eaton affair in which Jackson was forced to have his unqualified cabinet to resign, he still only took advice from his loyal friends and supporters, known by his enemies as the “kitchen cabinet”.
“Substituting dollars for bullets”, this policy wanted to prevent Latin American countries by managing the finances of “backward” countries and further American interest in East Asia through the use of economic might instead of military might.

Roosevelt) This statement was a response to the problems caused by Great Depression, and The New Deal and its aims effectively exemplified the idea that although the situation was worse, we still had the determination to overcome

He then raised taxes on cars he believed took up too much gasoline to power them. Another thing Jimmy Carter could have done better at but did not do such a good job at was international policies while he was in office. New threats from the middle east and the cold war nations made Jimmy Carter give things to those nations that would end up hurting the United States. When he put in place his Carter Doctrine which would not allow the U.S.S.R to expand he did it without looking at the future. This policy is to blame when it comes to most of the problems of the Middle East today.

Despite their different ideologies, it was decided that Germany had to be carefully controlled politically and economically in the hope of preventing further wars or world crisis. A planned economy was put in force and it resulted in economic disaster.

His idealism made him difficult to compromise and stubborn, and he was convinced in his own right. Wilson Tackles the Tariff The triple wall of privilege against tariffs, the banks, and the trusts.
