Reclaiming the American Dream

One of the many hard-to-stomach slogans that has made its appearance in the current charade of "representative government" is the use of the term "Reclaiming the American Dream" as a euphemism for more government.

To reclaim something, you must first understand what it is - and I can tell you with certainty that the American Dream is not what shameless politicians would like you to believe it is. It is not about "socially progressive" judges promoting social justice. It is not about "excess profits" taxes. And it certainly is not about political thugs divvying up an imaginary pie in a way that they believe is most likely to keep them in power.

The American Dream is about self‑responsibility - about an individual's right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And the only way he can pursue those rights is if the government gets out of his way.
