“The American Dream is a national ethos of the United States, the set of ideals (democracy, rights, liberty, opportunity and equality) in which freedom includes the opportunity for prosperity and success, as well as an upward social mobility for the family and children, achieved through hard work in a society with few barriers. In the definition of the American Dream by James Truslow Adams in 1931, ‘life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement’ regardless of social class or circumstances of birth.”
In the United States of America, the land of equal opportunity, not one of the core founding documents, or any document since 1776, that defines our country actually defines individual starting points or individual outcomes in the race to achieve the American Dream. Our documents define the opportunity to be in the race regardless of where an individual starts. If you don’t believe that then read the documents for yourself; Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights, Additional Amendments. If you don’t understand the documents then find a Civics teacher to help you, this is important!
The socialist propaganda machine is lying to you and promoting immoral victimhood when they say that some people start 50 yards behind. No one starts 50 yards behind in their individual race for the American Dream, everyone begins at their own starting line, armed with the same individual rights as every other citizen, and each according to their ability or achievement has to fight to achieve and maintain their own individual version of the American Dream. If you want your version of the American Dream, then get off your whimpering woe-be-unto-me ass and fight for it. Invest in yourself and get the education you need to achieve whatever version of the American Dream you strive for. Don’t complain that your basket weaving classes don’t get you into the school of nursing or engineering or computer programming; your choices and your own abilities make a difference in all your tomorrows. Work hard. Of course you do have the option of choosing to sit on your ass, not accept the consequences of your own choices, whine like a little snowflake that the kitchen is too hot and your outcomes aren’t equal to the CEO of General Motors, and blame everyone else for your own choices. Here’s what you need to understand; your lack of planning, intelligence, initiative and poor choices doesn’t constitute and emergency for the rest of us, i.e. the rest of us don’t owe you a damn thing.
Fight for your own American Dream! No more excuses!
As for the narcissist snowflakes infecting the core of our society with their constant immature whining. Stop trying to ram your immature feelings down our throat. Your feelings do not override the Constitution and our individual rights! You don’t have the right to not be offended! If something offends you then turn your little snowflake ass around and walk away from it. We are not shutting down the kitchen because you cannot take the heat. The rest of us aren’t required to sacrifice our rights to comfort your immaturity; we don’t owe you a damn thing.
Grow up! No more excuses!
Excuses are like assholes, everyone’s got one and they all stink.
