Yes, I think that Jackson's presidency definitely contridicted his beliefs in limited government. When Jackson went ahead with the Indian Removal Act, although the Supreme Court disapporoved, this was abusing his power as president. Jackson said he believed in democracy. If so, he would have probably left it up to the people of the United States to decide whether they should move and actions speak louder than words.
I'm not in anyway saying that Americans at the time had the right to decide where the Indians went. But that Andrew Jackson didn't allow the democracy of the people of the United States in his decision.

I believe this also. Jackson throughout his presidency; no,throughout his life showed many attributes of getting what he believes is right.


A example of this in his presidency was the Inidan Removal Act.


The Supreme Court said no to this, even with that Jackson still did what he wanted. THis shows that it affected his beleifs on limited goverment.
He was not going to let the government control something he believed was right. That was just the way he rolled.
