American Dream or Nightmare?-Shoots from the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii – Feb. 16, 2005


“Dick Rowland Image”

A key ingredient of the American Dream is the almost universal desire of every parent to have their offspring be more healthy, prosperous, happy and creative then they are.

The social security system as it now exists, makes every young person poorer every day. The current system promises returns about .04 percent to 1 percent to those young people. A money market account does much better. For the very young, money buried under the mango tree in the back yard is preferable.

As for promises, they are empty. Those congresspersons can change it at will. There is no entitlement. None. Nada.
