  •  "The American Dream" is to better ourselves. (6+ / 0-)

    To become a millionaire is some people's "American Dream" but most of us want enough money to be comfortable, to have and able to do more than we can now, and we know what we would do with another, say, $1000 ... or, for many, the next $100.

    A legitimate American model could let a great many of those folks "through" to their better dreams.

    It's true that most of us probably would keep wanting more. I suspect that is human nature and at some point, almost all of us will not get it. But we can do better, much better, than this current economy and its Far Right crowd of would-be legislative despots will allow if they have their way.

    2014 IS COMING. Build up the Senate. Win back the House : 17 seats. Plus!
