This tariff was used to discredit the president because Jackson knew that John Quincy Adams had to pass the tariff in order to keep his Northern industrialist supporters. While this was a means for Jackson to take the presidency, he did so at the expense of common people and small farmers. Southern farmers with small stakes of land couldn’t afford to pay such a high tariff on their goods. Many Southern states refused to pay the tax and

Despite the downfalls encountered along with the issues of individual liberties, Jacksonians still expressed their view of themselves to guard the United States Constitution by promoting equality of economic opportunity and increasing political democracy. Prominence was stressed on the fight for common man during this era.
It is not until, 1830 when Andrew Jackson propose an act in removal of the Indians and push them to the west of the Mississippi Riverthe Indian removal act. At the turn of the nineteenth century, the Indian Removal was a US governmental policy with particular focus on the five civilized tribes of the South, to relocate the Native Americans which resided in their homelands east of the Mississippi to lands west not yet occupied by settlers. Today the state of Oklahoma is home to these numerous non-indigenous tribes and their lineages.Thomas Jefferson fathered the Indian Removal, by becoming the first presidential advocate to land hungry Americans. Settlers fueled by a deep seeded fear of Indians and consumed by greed believed that the Native American’s lands were prime agriculturally and further, that it was not fair that they were not allowed access to it. Continued expansion at the time was coined as the key to success, and that obtaining the Indian lands was in fact the only means to achieving this, settlers in turn viewed Indians as obstacles blocking the path of American progress.

The nation was quite poor from the Revolution and had loans from the French that it was unable to pay back. This was because the Confederation did not have the power to tax, the states were supposed to donate money to the government and as a result, when other states realized that some were not donating money, they refused to as well. Despite the lack of taxing for the nation, the states placed taxes on goods being traded in or through their territory from other states. However, trade was complicated by the fact that there was no national currency. A Virginia dollar could be worth more than a South Carolina dollar, or worth less than a New England gold coin.

King and Silvey both effectively create characters confronted by adversity through which the reader can sympathise. Martin Luther King's I have a Dream, and Craig Silvey's Jasper Jones collectively highlight the 'empowering' aspect of change conveyed throughout their texts. 'Change' is conveyed as empowering as it provides hope and strength for discriminated people in the 1960's. King's emphasis on repetition, enhances the 'empowering' quality of his speech. The repetition of the phrase: "One hundred years later" following mention of Lincoln's emancipation proclamation, and the repetition in the form of anaphora "I Have a Dream", proves powerful as it reminds the reader that "the negro still is not free", that they are still fighting for justice.
