Americans have good heart.  :)

We do not have oil, we dont have good education but we supposedly have the american dream? Yet most people do not own there home or have to wait 30 years to finally own !!!! What do u guys think about this?

We have the freedom to make our own choices, freedom to worship the way we want, freedom to move from one area to another, freedom to gripe and complain about everything we don't like without the fear of being imprisoned, tortured or killed.  Our country has its share of problems but probably wouldn't be so bad if everyone took responsibility for their own actions in addition to lending a hand to those in need without taking from them with the other hand.
Have a wonderful day!

We have something that most other countries don't have, but something that does not seem to be appreciated any more: FREEDOM! But we'll lose that just because people are so lazy and brainwashed they'd rather just have the government step in and run their lives.

We still have freedom.  The American dream, however, is just that - it's a dream, a fantasy, something which most people never will (and should not, in my opinion) attain.

My son, who is 33 years old, is great for saying that few people in the United States are grateful for the life we have here. People from all over the world see the advantage of living here and do everything they can to live here. It is sometimes amazing to me that many people here can not see all of the advantages we have as Americans and instead find things to criticize. It is a way of life and living to live in gratitude. Those that do, I find, are much happier individuals and certainly more fun to be around!

It's not that we don't "have" things, it's that we (no one in particular) do not have the mindset of SAVING. We all want what we want and we want it NOW.

They don't have locked gates at the borders, so you can move anywhere you think is better.  :bs:

It's all here and available to those who want to go for it, but most people would rather just sit back and whine about how bad it is. If they think it's bad, then get off their backside and change it!
    Sir, You are 100% correct

America has the FREEDOM of speech which allows you sto say whatever you want about our country. You can also travel anywhere you want without a permit and you can even get an education if you want it bad enough. You could even go into politics and try to improve our country .

A lot of Americans have a lot of debt, people tend to spend money that they don't have. Americans do have a lot of stuff and 99% of what people buy they throw away within six months.

I think you're misunderstanding what the "American Dream" is... It is not to have all these luxuries, to become independently wealthy, etc. Rather, it is the ability to strive for that. The American Dream is all about freedom. We live in a place where we are all free to make our own decisions about our life and to strive (and sometimes achieve) for success in our lives. Heck, we have Amish that don't need oil and who self educate, yet they are still living the American Dream... They can live their own lives and feel successful and content in their own lives based on the ideals and lifestyle of their culture. They may not be materially successful, but they are successful in living what they'd consider blessed lives. And it is the freedom of this country that allows them to celebrate their religious values and live out their lives as they want.
