To many people seem to thimk being rich is the american dream.  That is not true.  The american dream is to be succesful.  That has different meaning to different people.

Tell us what succes is for you.

I am a mormon.  If I don't use mormons believe, those my beliefs only.
I do not go to church haven't for thirty years.
There are other mormons on this site. So if I have misspoken about the beliefs. I welcome their input.
I am not perfect and never will be. I do strive to be true to myself. I do my best to stay true to the mormon faith. Thank for careing and if you don't peace be with you.

Which one? The one of 1775? The one of 1864? The one of 1900? The one of 1929? Or what they have been selling you lately as being it?

My dream and I'm American, is to be able to do what I want if I'm not impacting anyone else.  Sadly, I don't get to live my dream.

For me, the American dream is opportunity and freedom, not riches or success.

To many, the American dream is wealth and materialism. What does one have to do to achieve this? I think the process of reaching this goal is what America is all about.

The acceptance of authority does not lead to intelligence.

Mine? People mind their own business, be smart enough to elect competent representatives and, most of all, leave all religion as something private and out of politics. In short: the Independence the Founding Fathers fought for.

The american dream is the freedom to dream your own dream. Which is why everyone has diffrent dreams. Land of the free go reach for the stars.


Atleast thats how i like to romanticise it lol :tsu:

  • Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

For people to know that " America", or " American " starts with a capital " A " ....100% of the time.


Especially if you are an American.
