The American Dream is not rioting and looting to get what you want and it’s not having someone else pay for everything you think you’re entitled too.
The American Dream is what every one that comes to this country legally is in hope of, a new beginning and a rewarding life. For the people that were born here it is what every one should aspire to. It makes no difference where you were born or whether you were born rich or poor. Every one has the ability to achieve his own level of success in society. Moving up the ladder is possible for everyone. The American Dream is believing that you can achieve anything through hard work and sacrifice. Willing to take a risk putting everything you have into making your dream a reality.
The origins of the American Dream can be found in the in Declaration of Independence, which states, ” We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and pursuit of Happiness”.
The American Dream has no limit on what you can accomplish when there is political and economic freedom and the rule of law. These provide for the opportunity to make choices and create the success that you desire.
The torch of the American Dream is being past on to the Millennials. They have the history of the past to learn from they have inherited a great economy, the advancements in medicine, science and technology. They have all the tools to move America forward and preserve the freedom and liberty that has made The American Dream possible. Without the American Dream there is no America!
It is going to be up to them to stay vigilant against the ones that want to destroy everything that has been in place to keep America the greatest country on earth. There has never been a time that is more important to be well informed and finding the true facts that will make it possible to defend against tyranny. If the ones that want this country to become submissive to a government with unlimited powers take control, then there will be no more freedom to create opportunities for a richer fuller life. In quotes from President Reagan,” Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth. ”
This election will decide whether we stay a free society or slip into the dominate control of socialism. Register to vote and vote for your future and freedom.
My prayer is that the Millennials will realize the gift that they have inherited and appreciate what they have, enough to preserve our liberties as free citizens.
