so what then is the `American Dream`?
"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"?
but you seem to concede that you`re just the same as everyone else...where did the exceptionalism go?
The American Dream USED to be owning a home, having at least one car and living comfortably without any serious financial worries.

That USED to be made possible by plentiful jobs, by reasonably priced medical care, etc.

All of that has changed and so now for way too many Americans, the American dream is simply to be able to keep a roof over one's head- rented or otherwise- and food on the table.

I would kinda have to disagree. It depends on how they practice their religion, and whether or not they insist on forcing it onto whoever doesn't want it.

Well, from 2002:

Most Americans Support War with Iraq, Shows New Pew/CFR Poll - Commentary by Lee Feinstein

Pew Research Center

http://www.cfr.org/iraq/most-americans-suppor...

And this:

Poll: Americans Broadly Support War

Now support for the war in Afghanistan has fallen quite a bit, but that was not always the case.

Because all Americans have the same opportunity to succeed or fail.
...and yet, you choose to be a blue collar worker in construction supplies who posts 50 times a day on a news aggregator site?

I`m just not seeing how you wisely exercised your choice there.

If you could absolutely definitely without a doubt have joined the professional classes by going to university and bettering the prospects for your family and yet you didn`t choose to do so...what does that make you?

So either you didn`t have the opportunity...or you`re an idiot.

Either way...you lose.

I know. Thanks for helping me make my point. That the rich getting richer & the poor staying poor is NOT an exclusive American trait.
No...not exclusively....just LARGELY an American trait.

And you keep saying the poor STAYING poor when that is not it at ALL.

It is the poor GETTING POORER.(While the rich get richer.)

The people who have achieved the `American Dream` are the ones who invariably promote that there is such a thing.

For me it's very simple, believing in fairy tales is something for children, not educated adults. I'm not a big fan of grown adult men wearing t-shirts with cartoons on them either :p

And before you bring me or the liberals into the conversation you'd better think twice. I am not a liberal. I care ONLY about doing what's best for this great country and the working man.
"You unconditionally support the conservatives" is a pretty broad statement.

I can't argue that without a better example from you....

And still- regurgitating the same silly platitudes and bromides, I see...I understand that you WANT to believe that all Americans have the same opportunity to succeed or fail, but you WANTING that to be the case does not mean it IS the case.
Then we must look at just what is meant by success and failure since both can be and often are subjective.
Anyway, the POINT is that it simply is NOT true that all Americans have the same opportunities.
Nice way to twist the words. What he said was that every American has the same opportunity to succeed - and they do.

No, chemicals don't influence that. Chemicals aren't love, chemicals only result from affection, and a crush, but not love, retarded moron!
