    Well, then it never existed.

    yeah, it did, and still does. it's just more difficult to attain now, and i outlined the reasons in my initial post. perhaps you should reread it.

    For those who believe the American dream is dead and for whatever reason/s they have given up striving to attain it, it most assuredly is dead. But for the one, the dreamer, the striver, the one who believes all things are possible, it is not and chances are that dreamer etc. is either in the process or has achieved the American Dream.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
