  1. I am thinking of doing an article about the american dream.What is the american dream? I am trying to get different oppinions of what it is. it would help alot.

    • The American Dream to me is to be truly free. Very limited government as to not be told what I can and cannot do or eat or talk about. Being able to take risks and start a business without government intervention and unnecessary regulations to hinder the success. If I fail, so be it. No bailouts. To lead a private life as I chose without government profiling. I could go on and on……….Bottom line is to stay free and live as I chose as long as you do not cause harm to anyone. I shared mine and would love to hear yours.

    • The American Dream is a national ethos of the United States in which freedom includes a promise of the possibility of prosperity and success. In the definition of the American Dream by James Truslow Adams in 1931, “life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement” regardless of social class or circumstances of birth.[1] The idea of the American Dream is rooted in the United States Declaration of Independence which proclaims that “all men are created equal” and that they are “endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights” including “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

  2. xout-thanks for the re-post of my article. Wouldn’t it be great if a few years from now we could look back and laugh and how worried we were. Funny, but i don’t see that happening.
