American Dream


My friend Phineas has a post that you really should go over and read. It is about this video:

And Hot Air has still more on the video.

This man had a chance to make his American dream come to be. He’s very successful, quite rich by any standard. But he arrived here broke – unable to speak English. And succeeded – paying, according to a quote over at Phineas’ about $1.9 billion in taxes along the way.:  Undoubtedly, there are a lot of people who have or still do work for him that are also making money, building futures – and paying taxes.

He did build that. And he chose to build it here. For all our benefit. His American dream is also what supports America itself.

Not trying to slice the pie into smaller and smaller bits. By making a bigger pie – and helping others grow it even bigger. Socialism always runs out of other people’s money. The way to real prosperity is by creating more wealth.
