It does really piss me off though that so many people neglect the freedom that's given to them upon living here. It's a gift that we are abusing by relying more than ever on the government. The American Dream is to take the initiative and climb up the ladder of success through perseverance and hard work. No one's going to reach the top by dropping out of highschool and signing up for welfare. People need to realize in order to make a decent living, you have to push yourself and follow your dreams. Why waste my breath, though, because it's obvious we'll never reach that level of society at this rate. Not as long as Obama's in office, that is.
