    We, the American people, promise to defend and advance a simple ideal: liberty and justice . . . for all. Americans who are willing to work hard and play by the rules should be able to find a decent job, get a good home in a strong community, retire with dignity, and give their kids a better life. Every one of us – rich, poor, or in-between, regardless of skin color or birthplace, no matter their sexual orientation or gender – has the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That is our covenant, our compact, our contract with one another. It is a promise we can fulfill – but only by working together.
    Today, the American Dream is under threat. Our veterans are coming home to few jobs and little hope on the home front. Our young people are graduating off a cliff, burdened by heavy debt, into the worst job market in half a century. The big banks that American taxpayers bailed out won’t cut homeowners a break. Our firefighters, nurses, cops, and teachers – America’s everyday heroes – are being thrown out onto the street. We believe:
    America is not broke

    America is rich – still the wealthiest nation ever. But too many at the top are grabbing the gains. No person or corporation should be allowed to take from America while giving little or nothing back. The super-rich who got tax breaks and bailouts should now pay full taxes – and help create jobs here, not overseas. Those who do well in America should do well by America.
    Americans need jobs, not cuts

    Many of our best workers are sitting idle while the work of rebuilding America goes undone. Together, we must rebuild our country, reinvest in our people and jump-start the industries of the future. Millions of jobless Americans would love the opportunity to become working, tax-paying members of their communities again. We have a jobs crisis, not a deficit crisis.

    To produce this Contract for the American Dream, 131,203 Americans came together online and in their communities. We wrote and rated 25,904 ideas. Together, we identified the 10 most critical steps to get our economy back on track and restore the American Dream:

    I am sorry to have to tell you this but America is OVER! It is run by a political system which is corrupt. Politicians are elected by people who pay no taxes but collect benefits awarded to them by the very politiocians they elect. That little circle is the very definition of corruption. These politicians also exempt themselves from the laws they make. Ho corruopt is that!

    Washington DC is Dante's innermost circle of hell. Decent people come here to serve and are corrupted by the political process of "compromise". This is a process where no one does the right thing, only the easy thing.

    A newly elected representative comes to DC and hires staffers who recently worked for the opposition party. Either that or his "leadership" finds him staffers. Who do you think these staffers are loyal to? These unelected staffers run DC and run the Representatives and Senators. Their interests are in keeping their jobs and keeping the appearance of things running smoothly.

    The enormous debt with which this system has saddled us will never be retired. That would not serve the purposes of the elite. You see, they don't really think that there is a problem. They are of the "it can't happen here" school. They decry what has happened in Greece but deny that we are on the same path. Besides, this is America. "It can't happen here". Well, it is happening here - and NOW!

    I may not live to see the actual end but i clearly see the beginning of the end. If we don't wake up and do the really hard things, America will not climb out of this death spiral. The really hard things include addressing everything which threatens to bring down this country. These include such unthinkable things as universal sufferage, term limits, limits on the judiciary, recall and too many more to mention here. Otherwise, our 200+ years in the sun is approaching its end.
