Is the American Dream Really Dead?

Many American’s remain staunchly patriotic and who would dare deny them their right to wave the Stars and Stripes but is the American dream a thing of the past?

The debate between capitalists and socialist will continue to rage on long after I’ve shuffled off this mortal coil; I suspect it’ll be debated once the Sun finally consumes our little planet and there are good arguments for both cases.

Ask any American billionaire whether they could have made their fortune outside of the United States and many will tell you that it would not have been possible.

So what is changing for it is undeniable that the winds of change have turned the once powerful nation of the United States into little more than a country on the brink of bankruptcy; after all with a national debt of over $17.5 trillion there is no denying the fact that the United States has a problem.

We could argue, and very successfully I might add, that the U.S Government, like all western governments has simply become too big and democracy has been reduced to simply allowing the citizen to vote in the next set of dictators who is turn take their orders from the lobbyists on behalf of large corporations.

So where did it all go wrong?  The video below gives an insight into the American dream and where and how it has collapsed.
