He got a second chance. He became America's seventh president. In 1828, he defeated Adams soundly. In 1832, he won a another term. He bested National Republican Henry Clay decisively.

Jackson called the Second Bank a "hydra-headed monster" for good reason. Along with other major central banks, the Fed wages financial war on humanity.
