Kennedy, once said, “It’s not what you are that counts, it’s what people think you are.” (9 Hostages to Fortune, 1990) He only let the public see a good, hard working American man. Many people did not know that Kennedy suffered from Addison’s disease and lived a life of pain. As a politician in his early career, Kennedy was all style. This changed however, when he became a senator.
During Andrew Jackson’s presidency, Jackson emphasized the use of his own personal views and ideas. His course of action was significantly different than any other president the country had previously encountered, which led to strife within the Union. Over the course of his presidency, Jackson dealt with nullification in the South, attacked the national bank, and displaced hundreds of Native Americans from their homeland.

Both regions had several things in common, such as unjust rulers and desire of equality and freedom for peasants and nobles, although they had major differences on how they went about winning their revolution and what they were fighting for.

The Kings, Parliament, and Nobles were superior, had all the authority, made all the rules, passed all the laws, yet the citizens of France the Britain’s colonies were the ones who had to pay the price. The government did not bother to listen to the voices and demands of the common people, being unfairly taxed so the elite can have their own personal gains, creating the path for a strong sense of patriotism and pride in one’s nation, forging people to stand up for the rights they deserve, commencing the beginning of the Revolutions.

Napoleon’s rule was dictatorial because central and local government were directly under his control.
