    I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.

    I can pursue happiness when ever I damn well please!

    But hm I'm a pessimist so I know that I'm better off just doing nothing.

    Something will fall into my lap.

    The American dream.....is dead and always was dead if you ask me, very few people coming here with nothing ever achieved more than poverty and prejudice...just like they would of if they stayed where they were.

    But at least here they had the freedom and liberty to pursue that life of poverty and prejudice while still holding on to some sort of hope for a better life....lol what a joke.

    The American dream should be rephrased too "Get all the money you can while screwing over everyone even your friends and family because they are all dead weight...oh and be sure to out source jobs and exploit poor people and over work them for shit benefits if any at all and poor pay so you can go buy a Donzi boat and go marlin fishing while sipping $6000 dollar bottles of wine."

    The laws are a joke and dream idea is a joke.

    Silly people, the "American Dream" is owning a nice home in suburbia with a white picket fence, having a good job, a nice wife in the kitchen cooking a fine turkey dinner and two and a half children.

    You know, the good ol' days.

    It's quite conceited of Americans to assume that things like life and freedom are qualities inherent to their "dream".

    I'm sure that could just be called The Dream, then. Everyone wants life, liberty and to HAVE happiness.
