I see the passage of the FairTax as the single greatest piece of legislation for creating a smaller government, for dramatically improving our economy, and ridding Washington of thousands of tax lobbyists. I dream of the day when our elected politicians see all the many flaws in our current tax code and instead of tweaking a totally broke system vote to totally replace it. The FairTax plan is the only plan in existence that totally overhauls our tax system with something that is fair, finite, and flat. Over 60 in the house of reps. are co-sponsors along with more than a handful of senators. Momentum is growing for this plan. My dream would also include organizations like patriot voices getting behind this effort. I challenge senator Santorum and all elected officials to thoroughly study this plan and get behind it as so many people are doing.
My American dream is stopping those who want to remove (OBAMA admin) the “ladder” of upward mobility. I want to continue striving to improve my upward mobility so one day, hopefully, I am able to support without too much stress and anxiety, myself or a spouse-family. I am currently, going to graduate school in Accounting to upgrade my skills and knowledge for a better job in this field. Once I graduate, the job market, because of horrific OBAMA- liberal progressive policies I worry of no or such lack of opportunities to achieve my American dream. Too few jobs for too many citizens. Also I pray for this nation of ours can restore, preserve the constitutional republic it once was. The severe assault on religious, political, economic freedoms, moral- ethical responsibility stops.
My American Dream is that everyone regardless of gender, race, ethnic group, and sexuality had the same rights to schools, jobs, getting married, and living their lives. That anyone could practice any religion they wanted, but when someone tried to get their particular religious beliefs reflected in law, that the majority of citizens would deem that the abomination it truly is to our country's history and laws, and that someone would then be shouted down for their attempt to take freedom away from the rest of us in the name of their religion. I also wish that schools could be more fully funded so that future members of the Tea Party could know that being a fascist, socialist, and communist are all separate and unique political views and calling someone all of them at once makes them look like idiots. Also, hopefully the extra education will help them with all the grammatical and spelling errors I see on their signs (one can hope).
I have many more things that I want to happen in my American Dream that I won't go into, but to make my dream happen, I have joined the ACLU, vote largely democratic, routinely destroy conservative arguments in person or on the internet, and work to keep conservative policies, which came close to destroying America during the previous president's term, from being enacted or work to get them repealed.
The day after this last election I thought to myself....what just happened? How did this happen a second time? I felt let down by my fellow Americans that could accept another 4 years of this erosion of what my America stood for and was built on.
I felt hopeless, like we can never get back to where we need to be as a country. The lack of leadership that leaves us all so vulnerable to the loss of every freedom we've known in the past.
America is about choice, and what you believe in. This country has fallen from the land of opportunity to the land of entitlement. When you try to instill morals and values in your children, they are undermined by this current society and they are forced to accept and tolerate everything or be labeled as some sort of bigot.
After months of feeling like the rug got pulled out from under me after this election, I am trying to regroup. I have realized I cannot give up and need to fight harder for what I believe in. Rather than just accept what we've been handed for another 4 years, we need to get active. Write letters to our elected officials and voice your opinions, attend meetings with other like minded people, continue to raise our children with strong values and morals. Teach our younger generation what it was really like before this complacency set in. Teach them that even though you are penalized for working hard today, that you still should. Teach them to make a difference.
I was so disappointed to see the so called "dream act" passed by the house which gives state college tuition assistance to illegal immigrants, feel like it rewards them for breaking our countries laws. I had just gotten the news from my son that serves in our United States military that his tuition assistance has been cut. Where is the justice in that? Why aren't people up in arms over this? I would hope the folks in our senate would come to their senses and vote no. This is just one of many issues I disagree with.
My American Dream is to bring back the America we had, the America that was made strong by hard working people, and our military members that have made the ultimate sacrifice for the rights we have. I love my country and am so very proud to be American. We need to restore hope instead of just rolling over and accepting what has been handed to us. Quit being afraid of offending people because you stand for something that doesn't involve big government. God Bless America and the ones who will stand up for her.
To have a nation free from religious prejudice, where the hindu or the atheist have as little influence as the baptist or the jew. Where universal principles transcend tribal conflicts and we figure out the moral difference between the ancient "golden rule" and the military industrial complexes' "bring it on" mentality.
My dream is that my children will continue to grow up in a Free Nation, and that when they grow up they will have the same and even better opportunities. I dream of an America that no longer kills innocent unborn babies, and a nation that will embrace all people with special needs. That's why I got involved with Patriot Voices last year because I seen the direction that we were headed as a nation and that's why I got involved and became a County Coordinator. I'm a homeschooling mom, and I sacrifice my time and money to preserve our Great Nation. Being part of this amazing team has given me a Voice, and I want my children to have a voice and be heard, I want the American Dream to continue for my children and lord willing one day maybe my grandchildren. America is still Great, we just need to fight for our freedoms now so that the American Dream will be preserved for the next generation.
I am trying to get something similar to a perinatal hospice started in my area. This is an organization that comes alongside women after they learn that their child will not survive long after birth. To make it happen, I am working with my local pregnancy center and am getting information from another similar organization in another state.
Looking forward to hearing Rick Santorum speak in May.
no more kids shot by crazies @ Sandy Hook, no more kids killed by gang bangers who only know how to spray and play, no more spouses killed by a shot from a pissed off spouse, no more kids killed by accident REPEAL the 2nd Amendment and confiscate everything wherever/whenever found except a hunting rifle
If only we could get all of America to realize this: What good is the common good if you don't have any common sense?
