The American Dream Lives On

If there is a concept nearly every liberal can agree on, it’s that the American Dream is dead. Some will even go as far as to claim that it never existed to begin with. And it’s this underlying, unAmerican philosophy that drives the policies of the Democratic Party. It’s this failure to appreciate freedom that drives their attack on the rich. It’s this sickening belief system that drives their desire to see America become more like the democratic socialist countries of Europe.

But the American Dream is far from dead. If you want proof, you need only look at the thousands of people who come here each year through both legal and illegal means. Despite some very difficult immigration bureaucracy, America remains the destination of choice for anyone who wants to go as far as their skills will take them.

It’s only natural to take for granted the things you’ve had your whole life. While liberals decry male privilege, white privilege, this privilege and that privilege, they rarely take any time to recognize American privilege. Because to do so, they would have to acknowledge that a lot of what they’re fighting for is, quite frankly, frivolous.

The Tools Are All Here

Never in history has knowledge been so readily available. The wisdom of 4,000 years of recorded history is waiting in any public library. The Internet has made it so you don’t even have to get in your car to answer almost any question you might have. Colleges around the country offer courses in any field of study you might imagine.

As much as liberals cry about the divide between the rich and the poor, they fail to understand that it’s an imaginary line. We have no caste system. You can start in a trailer park and make it to Park Avenue. Does it often happen? No, it’s a difficult road. It’s fraught with peril, competition, and obstacles. But it’s a victory that can be won with desire, dedication, and discipline. All the tools are there. You don’t have to be a genius, you don’t have to be supernaturally talented, and you certainly don’t have to be white.

But money isn’t everything that the American Dream stands for. For many, the dream is to start a family, own a home, and live a nice quiet life. For others, the dream is to travel. Some want to dedicate their lives to helping others. All of these dreams are possible, as are many others. That isn’t the case in every country. Not by a long shot. It’s thwarted by totalitarianism, taxes, and closed societies. It’s thwarted by religious governments that enforce laws that bring new meaning to the word “oppression.”

As long as we remember the tenets upon which this great country was founded, the American Dream will live on. If there are people who want to deny its existence, that’s their prerogative. But it’s a shame. You can improve your life much faster by bettering yourself than you can by carrying a protest sign outside a fast food restaurant.

  1. The latest Obomination message does nothing for our Country in all instances, Why does this person think HE knows everything or is it something that comes to him from his lovely Wife or Associates almost past and present! We know how it should be, BUT, it sure as HELL ain`t ?

    • Well be patient. After 2 yrs you won’t have this President to kick around anymore.

      • Hello Informus219,
        We can’t wait two years to oppose his policies! By that time, Obama will have his anti-American laws, executive orders, memos, and other pronouncements so entrenched that no party or political elections can stop the destruction of our great nation! January 2015 come soon!!

  2. To so many, being wealthy is success, but Seeking those things which are in Heaven is the way to go.. Our Riches are in Heaven, not on Earth.. It is easier for an elephant to fit through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to get into Heaven.. Happiness does not come from shopping at Amazon, or Tiffany’s, but from the Love of our Father in Heaven, and our love for Him.. Happiness comes from serving others, Not serving ourselves.. That’s what Jesus birth, and Christmas, is all about.. Not Shopping for, and receiving gifts.. Residing in God’s Kingdom is My Dream, not in America…

    • You’d better hope you’re correct about the Kingdom, or your life on earth has been wasted, IMHO.

      • Living a life that Jesus would like, is Not a waste, either way.. Selfishness, greed, partying, drugs, alcohol, etc, is the Waste of a good life, IMHO.. Sodom and Gomorrah thought that way, and looked what happened to them, or what happened to the whole world after Noah entered the Arc.. I hope you enjoy your eternity in the Lake of Fire with Obama, Hitler, Stalin, Hillary, Satan, etc… If you think that Man, animal, all life, and the Universe, just happened and was created out of nothing, then you really are closed minded..

        • In your original comment you did say camel, you did not need correcting.
          At the risk of being unaware, what is IMHO? : ) Thamks

          • I edited my remark from Elephant to Camel after Tom corrected me… IMHO is, “in my honest opinion”, as I was replying to Old Patriot32..

          • Thank you for explaining, I kept looking back at it & crossing my eyebrows, wondering. lol
            Didn’t know comments could be edited.
            And TY for the info, still trying to learn how to talk in letters. ; +)

          • If you look under your Own comments, it says, edit, reply, share..

    • wdcrafter, well said. Looking ahead to what God has promised in the Bible is the only sane way to go. Planet earth is a ridiculously small part of an unbelievably immense cosmos and beyond. It is a school for humankind to prepare us for eternity…when time shall be no more. It’s on this earth that we make our most important decision of all, whom shall we serve? You only have two choices, God or Satan. God offers life, Satan offers destruction. All you have to do is believe and ask God for His gift of salvation. Even if your faith is shaky and your belief weak, God will answer your questions and provide cosmic assurance and life altering strength.

    • Matthew 19: 24 “Again I say to you , it is easier for a CAMEL to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God”

  3. As with the GOP, the Dems also have their rich and elites. All the liberal/progressive propaganda re the death of the American Dream is exactly that-propaganda. Opportunities to succeed, even without advanced education, still exist in American corporations and small businesses. People are still marrying and raising children, as they have been for 240 years here! The American Dream is alive and well, in spite of all the traitorous policies and actions by Obama & Co the past 7 years. The resiliency of America is being tested, and will prevail over time, IMNSHO.

  4. Just wish it was to be sooner, cuz` We won`t survive his directives much longer!

    The American dream is alive for everyone except white people born in this country. My husband and I are living on a fixed income and are not eligible for any help despite the fact he payed into the system for 55 years and now that we need help, we cannot get any type of assistance. We have the honor of watching illegals drive up to the Social Services building to collect their welfare benefits in their new vehicles and wearing their expensive clothes . They also get vouchers to put gas in their new vehicles. So they are the ones living the American dream, while people who were born in this country are rotting in poverty and cannot afford to pay their bills. Even though he is an amputee, my husband has applied for work to supplement the measly Social Security he draws,he cannot get a job where we live because they only hire illegal aliens, many of which are also collecting the aforementioned benefits in addition to taking our jobs. The employers would rather hire them because they don’t have to pay taxes such as Social Security , Workers’Comp ,Unemployment or a reasonable wage as government pays them to hire these workers and gives them free housing, free cable, free internet, free phones.

    • Deu 28:43 “The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower. 44 He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail. 45 “Moreover all these curses shall come upon you and pursue and overtake you, until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the voice of the LORD your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you.” Shalom!
