What is the American dream?

Do your best to define it, and how well you think America is living up to it.

I'm not interested in debating your definitions, I'm just interested in knowing what they are.

Thanks in advance.

What made America exceptional.

To make a living without having to ask permission and follow orders from some government bureaucrat, crony, or noble.

It's not up to America to live up to my version of the American dream. It's up to me. And that's what makes the dream, you can go as far as your willing to work for.

Well, under Obama we know the American Dream is just a dream.

Also, the American Dream doesn't mean everyone is equal nor is it implied they should be. It's simply allows each individual to pursue happiness which includes accomplishments and success on their own without any guarantees by the federal govt--or any other govt.

Thank you for telling us some of what it isn't. It also is not cauliflower. Or tofu. Just for the record.

It was directed to Direckshun who's post history shows that's what he thinks it is.
Pay attention now. Or were you up with one of your mags again, after the wife fell asleep? I told you it makes you blind.

Your obsession with my sex life is a bit disturbing to be honest. Maybe you should go find a flesh-and-blood man and not a guy on the internet you will never meet and who wouldn't be interested in you anyway...
