Defining the American Dream

My definition of the American dream is anyone given the opportunity to achieve the highest goal of success. Maybe achieving something you wished for as a kid. For example: Doctor, astronaut, racecar driver, etc.



The more goverment you have, the less likely you are to acheive this American dream.

My definition of the American dream is having the base of the country taken care of to reduce crime/violence to give a fair chance to ALL Americans, and become a more pleasant place to live for all.

That sounds like idealistic nonsense. Having the base taken care of? Oh please... We don't need the government to take care of us. Let the base take care of it's damn self. What are we children of the government? Will big brother keep us warm at night?

Yeah, because "everyone for themselves" is working for us now right? Some of the highest rates of pollution, violence, crime, and lack of education in the free world. Let Darwin sort em out

When did our system become everyone for themselves? Shit, did I miss another memo?



Where do you get your facts? Do you just fabricate them yourself?



At least I trust that you won't claim that Jesus told you, I'll give you that much...

We could do a lot more and we don't. Plain and simple. For a functioning, stable, and safe society to function you have to care for the people from the base up.

No, you really don't.



You need to instill hard working values, and let them prosper on thier own. You need to let them grow and be free. The principles this country was founded on, not control them through legislation.

When people are working 3 jobs just to get by the system is failing it's people. These are not the principles this country was founded on... or what a minute, that is exactly what we are founded on.

The system is not here to hold the hands of the people. If you have to work 3 jobs to get by, you need to get more marketable skills. You need to recognize that you may be a failure, and try to improve yourself, not cry and beg for a hand out.
