I’m not sure when the definition of the American Dream changed, but it seems it has. Especially to all the news channels and ignorant politicians. The promise was nothing more than an opportunity for a better life if your willing to work hard and make sacrifices. Life hasn’t ever been easy and it’s not supposed to be. If you want nice things then you have to bust your ass and EARN them. Living off other people money isn’t the American Dream it’s the American Downfall. If you are too lazy to go out and work your ass off for your Goals you don’t deserve the money of someone who does. One of the greatest quotes I know “ The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.” Alexis de Tocqueville(1840’s). The current democratic party has fully embraced this mantra and its showing in the downfall of the political system. Its just sad the public is dumb enough to follow the undeserving of leadership down the path to destruction.
