The OWS protests

This:  http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/10/12/1025555/-Open-Letter-to-that-53-Guy   explains totally the difference between those that call themselves the 99%ers and the 53%.

The difference is this:   The 53% want the American Dream - we are willing to do what it takes to EARN the right to that dream. 

The 99% want what they think is the American Dream - handed to them on a silver platter.  They feel everyone, regardless of what they want to do in life deserves equal treatment.

Yes, the constitution says all men are created equal.  That means we have the right to make our life as we see fit.  That is the American Dream.

A society where everyone is treated the same is not the American Dream.  That is Communism, Socialism or whatever you want to call it.  

We don't live in that kind of country - if this is what you want - then feel free to move your ass to Cuba or China.  You can have the dream the way you see it there. 

You can't have your cake and eat it too, people.   The American Dream is earned.  It is not given away.    You want the American Dream?  Go home and earn it.
