Is The American Dream Just A Dream? I think that the American Dream is a social ideal based on equality in social, political and economic rights and privileges. The constitution of this country suggests that every person who lives on American soil is free. In the United States' Declaration of Independence our founding fathers:" held certain truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness." I consider these words to be the foundation of the American Dream. Over time, however, the American dream has been defined with America being the Land of opportunity, Home of the free, land of the brave, wealthiest and most powerful nation in the world. Now, success is what the American Dream is all about My parents came to this country in search of the American dream, Like them, many people are motivated by the promise of a better life, and so they come to this country, some for political or religious reasons, bust most come because of economic reasons, they are interested in making money. Many of these immigrants come to the United states risking their lives, in the hopes of living out the American Dream. After all, we live in a country which represents the large majority of the wealth and technology of the world, yet we make up about 5% of the world's population. I think we have a very strong economy, our currency is strong,for example: Almost every country outside of the United states accepts U.S currency, meanwhile, here in the U.S, we don't accept currency from other countries, For example, you can't buy a bagel with French currency. Many immigrants come to this country to escape the poverty of their own homeland. Immigrants that come to the U.S from communist countries such as cuba come to the United States because they want to be free people in a free society, where they would all have equal access to economic prosperity,
the turn of the century the “American Dream” could be described as a well-paying job with a loving family. The problem is that as Americans we have a tendency to not be satisfied with what they have and want more. People who are truly living the “American Dream” realize that money doesn’t make you happy because no matter how much you make, you will always want more. A commonly known story of the “American Dream” is F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, the dream is exemplified by Gatsby’s hopes….
American Dream: Reality or a Dream?
By Maria Algarra
Do you think the American dream still provides to the poor, tired, and huddle masses? I think America still provides access to everybody who steps foot on this country. Today many people immigrate to the United States in search of the American dream. The American dream have made millions of people from other countries to come to America to have a new and better life of freedom….
What’s your definition of the American Dream? What is it after reality jumps in? The Reality of the American Dream doesn’t always get achieved by everyone. Life can sometimes find a way to interrupt dreams by something unexpected happening and ruining the dream.

The reality of American dream
The American dream is to say everyone has the equal opportunity to achieve success. This idea is represented everywhere in US through the media and education. So that every American believes that they all have equal rights and equal chance to succeed. However, the fact is that class exists all the time. Diana Kendall’s essay, Framing Class, Vicarious Living, and Conspicuous Consumption….
The American Dream is perceived differently by many. Some may claim The American Dream is being able to move up in society and prosper through work, initiative, and determination. Others may alternatively say it is to be able to say, think, and do what you want or in other words, have freedom. The answers to the question, “What is the American Dream,” vary. I believe The American Dream is a feat accomplished by a minute collection of people that allows them to live how they want and be free from….
The American Dream is a Fantasy
The American Dream is owning a car, a home, a piece of land, and having free time to enjoy life. The American Dream is an egalitarian principle, it is the principle that all people are equal and deserve equal rights and opportunities. I believe that the American Dream is not a realistic possibility for the average American with things like minimum wage standing in their way.
Many people are asserting that the American Dream is an unrealistic goal for the average….
The American Opportunity: Illusion or Reality?

Time is the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future regarded as a whole. The factor of time gives us opportunity to be influenced to new ideas by experiences, personal goals, and social media. Human beings dream every night and during the day we try to fulfill our goals and dreams by making them realistic. In the United States of America, we all started out as immigrants from different countries and we….
The American Dream.
Many question the reality of “the American Dream”. The idea that in America you have the same opportunities as anyone and have the same chance to be successful if you have determination and motivation. This American dream now-a-days can be true in some cases but isn’t always the norm. In my opinion the “American Dream” is no longer accessible because judgement is always exercised when it comes to things like race, gender and beliefs make this difficult for us Americans. America….
The American dream, Many people have one yet few actually achieve it .This unfortunately makes one question the legitimacy of this supposed “American dream”. I personally feel that the American dream is more fantasy than reality.Though you may try hard to achieve your dream there are outside aspects that ultimately determine your fate.A perfect representation of that would in the book Of Mice and Men.….
