Have Americans stopped believing the American Dream and begun waiting for the government to take care of them?

Do you believe that you have unlimited opportunity in the US? Should we all work to make a better life for our kids, even if it means working 2 jobs or starting your own company?

No duh!! Any protests or uprisings by Americans always last 5 seconds b/c they can't last 3 seconds from their nintendo games or big macs. Unless Americans are starving to death or being massively killed, they won't truly do anything.
