    Wow.  This isn't an easy question.   I think the American Dream would be to no longer have homeless in the hundreds of thousands; affordable healthcare and higher education (and no, I’m not plugging Obamacare here); no more wars; opportunities for everyone; green technologies…   Okay, I have to stop because I’m dreaming here. smile

    A government of the people for the people would be a good start.

    To be unharrassed and without penalty of regulation of an idea.   To truly be able to pursue a vision without the worry of what it will cost me ( in taxes and government regulations) to achieve it.

    The "American Dream" is much more simple that some might think.  I have a job that pays me reasonably well such that I can afford a nice home, a car, investments, and put food on the table.  I am living the American Dream.  You don't have to be rich or wildly famous...you just have to be happy and appreciate what you have and the effort that you have put into getting it.  In America, we can do that. In other countries, it is not possible, thus it is truly "The American Dream".  WB

    The American Dream is just to be happy with your life. What you consider happy is really up to the person. It changes with each person.

    Once upon a time, it used to be owning a house with white picket fences and owning a car. Now I am not sure what it is with economy being down.

    America, one of the most powerful nations on Earth sells itself as the 'land of opportunity' where anything and everything is possible.. the Dream is about the pursuit of wealth 'by any means possible' which by the way they equate as 'success' or having 'made it'.. So I guess in the mind of Americans their question to themselves is 'how could you not live the Dream with all the abundance and opportunity around you?'..

    I think it is the ability to have "the Dream." And having spoken to a number of future Americans about this, It is something different for everyone.

    You cannot always trust your opinion. Opinion isn't fact so thats the reason

    The American dream is freedom.  Freedom to choose the path you take in life.  Freedom to explore and try new things both in your personal and profesional life.
