    yes and no. The American dream is to be able to come here, or be born here, and make your way inthe world and create your own living (i believe). That is very possible here, however, once one gets to a certain point it becomes corrupt.
    I am very fortunate to live in a very creative area just north of Seattle, and the people around me are truly inspiring. I have a friend who is supporting herself and her son by making jewelry and selling it on e-bay. I have another friend who earns his income by throwing festivals because he enjoys live music. I am involved with Think Piece Productions which was created by a couple of gentle men with no money, and now they're making their living off it.
    However, America is what you put into it. If you want to work hard, and create your own income, you can do it. If you want it to just be served to you, well, that's not going to happen.
    Also, those wanting to come to America are willing to work for a lower wages because usually where they come from, the wages are far less, and the work conditions are poor. This way they can at least get treated better, in theory.

    The American dream is true, but not as true as it used to be.

    For those who are creative, talented, attractive and hard working, the dream is still possible, but for many, there is little chance of getting ahead as in past years because of the way American society has changed.

    People who worked hard all of their lives, saved, raised a family, bought a little house now are finding that they've lost everything (or most everything) because of the housing bubble and the stock market (and a whole lot of fraud).

    Their Medicare and Social Security benefits are being challenged, and most people no longer even have pensions.

    A good number of young people feel they will never be able to retire, and they may be correct.  This definitely is not the America we once knew, so achieving the dream, while still possible, is much more difficult.

    The American dream...what is it actually? This "American Dream" is possible in other countries as well as here, not in every country though. But many other countries give you the possibilities to reach your dream. It is something about yourself, your own goals and what you are willing to do about it. There are many especially right now who return back to their home country and live their lives there, and feel they are better off. This shows, that the dream is not as much of a dream as it once was....the Americans are dreaming along next to reality at times.....unfortunately.
