The American Dream has been under attack for decades. Our current President Barrack Hussein Obama probably best exemplifies this war on individual hard work and achievement. Obama famously said “you did not build that” meaning that no achievement can happen in America without the government’s help. He has incentivized American’s to not work. His policies are designed to maintain a high unemployment rate and corresponding dependency on the government.
This commercial has many on the left very upset. They hate this because it talks about hard work and achievement. It also takes a shot at European socialism. When I grew up this ad would be seen as just a normal ad celebrating the American Dream. The Democrat Party at that time were champions of the American Dream. Sadly today an ad like this is considered dangerous by the left (Democrats, main stream media, unions) because it goes against everything they have been telling us for so long and threatens their power base.
