The American dream is gone. It ended during the night of November 6th, 2012. Teach your children guile and to hold their tongue. Honesty is weakness. Want to be a work horse, go ahead but it will not earn you anything other than scorn from your peers. Want to pretend you still have a voice in this government, then go on pretending; especially if it makes it easier to go to sleep at night. It is night-time for America. Lock your doors well.
