Republicans May Talk About the 'American Dream' But They Don't Know What It Means (VIDEO)


Politicians have always loved talking about The American Dream. How much we deserve it, how much we should fight for it, how much more likely we are to get it if THEY are in office.

Well, this year's Republican National Convention is no different. That phrase has popped up in speech after speech. Well, it used to mean pretty much the same thing to all Americans -- a century ago! Today, interests are so divided and needs are so diverse, it's impossible to find consensus on the subject. So I think politicians should just stop using it until they ask everyday citizens (rich and poor) what it means to them.

If they want a clue, I suggest they start here with this eye-opening CafeMom Studios video. Our RNC correspondent Lindsay Ferrier asked regular woman about hopes and dreams for their families and it's exactly what these politicians need to hear.

Watch moms weigh in here:

Do you think there is really still an American Dream? If so, what's yours?

The Gop is talking about their own faith in themselves? Does a mormon and a catholic, believe in Jesus Christ? *Galatians 3:22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. (What happened to the pride of life?) *Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. *1st Corinthians 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. (Zechariah 12:10) *John 11:48 If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation. *Moses, Noah, Lot, Joseph, all found grace*

You mean we need to give The Living God of Abraham, Isaac and Joseph the Everlasting   Glory????????

Does the state of Israel, love Joseph? *Genesis 37:3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours. *Hebrews 11:22 By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones. (*Genesis 50:25 And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you, and ye shall carry up my bones from hence.) *Acts 7:18 Till another king arose, which knew not Joseph. (The lovers of the world wants prosperity? *Genesis 39:2 And the Lord was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. *Isaiah 19:23 In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians. *Luke 19:38 And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for the fear of the Jews, (*Esther 8:17) besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus. (Matthew 27:57)

Mitt Romney started out with nothing, he wouldn't even take his father's money.  He gave it all to charity.  He worked hard and produced sucessful companies.  That is exactly what the American dream is!  Amazing how Liberals shake their fingers more at sucessful people who actually worked their butt off to get where they are than Hollywood actors being paid $20 million to star in a movie, or players getting $40 million to throw a football, or members of Congress who only have to serve one term to get paid the rest of their life.
