A brand new CNN Money poll says 59 percent of Americans now believe the American Dream is unachievable.

For some still willing to work hard to achieve it, it means less competition. If you still have the passion, the belief in yourself of achieving the American Dream, you’ll be competing against fewer people because others have given up.

But here is the problem. You know what those 59 percent are going to do? They’re going to go to the polls and they’re going to vote for garbage like $15 an hour, and they’re going to demand more Socialism. They’re going to demand, let’s take more from those evil, filthy rich people.

Socialism works until you run out of other people’s money.
They’re going to vote for policies that are just going to make it impossible for even that 41 percent to achieve the American Dream because we’re going to confiscate everything they make.

I think that all the stuff that is going on with the federal government, the Obama administration, everything that’s happening here in Seattle politics, I think it is designed to make people as dependent on government as possible, to destroy their initiative.

It is sad. I want everyone to reach their potential, I really do, but it appears people have lost faith in themselves because government has designed things that lead them to lose faith.

But we’re going to keep fighting the fight and try to reverse this trend single-handedly.
