As an American, do you still believe in living ''The American dream''????


Though I am not an American, I have always felt driven by the slogan 'living the american dream'. But in recent years with all that is happening in the states, I can feel that passion die away slowly. Is it only me?

    I was limited in the manner in which I answered this question. You, however, touched on the heart of the matter and I agree with you 100%. Great response!

    That is very true. For the less fortunate the A dream is just an illusion

    Wayne you have stated the the facts in a very eloquent manner. I could not agree more. Freedom is the American Dream - freedom to work hard and achieve a certain level of success for a comfortable life. Everyone can participate...

    The American Dream of owning a house, failed with the housing bubble collapse.As the country lets the government do more for them, the American Dream vanishes.because the individual disappears into the group.

    What about America being the land of freedom and opportunity, is that also a lie or a worn out ideology?

    I like this...back home guys have the thought that going to the states is a gateway to riches, thus confusing it for the american dream. sad

    I think "The American Dream" is a popular figure of speech used in connection with the US, without specifically naming it "The United States Dream."
