With the economy is still struggling,  some fearing a double-dip recession, and more people than ever living in poverty, many are wondering what the future holds for our country.

Back in the day young people functioned under the idea that if you worked hard enough or went to college, you could live the American Dream: Owning a house, having a family, and having enough money to live comfortably.

But these days, people aren’t so sure.

Groups like the Tea Party, Occupy Wall Street protesters, and others have taken to the streets to “reclaim” what they feel is an American Dream that is slipping away. Despite the dismal numbers, and so many Americans broke or out of work, many young people are still optimistic about the future.

But are you?

Clutchettes and Gents…do you still believe in the American Dream? 

Let’s talk about it!

    The entire global economy is turning into a nightmare right now…and it’s a nightmare that might last for a long time…i’m not even trying to be negative, it’s how bad things are. Check CNBC, drudgereport, any financial and/or global news website source you can find. I hope people who have their hope in jobs, careers, money…etc can wake up. Things are going to get bad on a global scale soon…God help us all…

    I used to believe in it, but not anymore. I thought for sure I would be able find some job that paid at least $30,000 a year after graduating college. Even if the job wasn’t in the same field as my major I was sure I would find something. Not the case at all. You need experience to get an entry level position and if you don’t have it they won’t even consider you despite the fact that you have a degree. How are you supposed to get the experience if no one will give you a chance? I have a degree in marketing, graduated with honors, have work experience (not in an office though) and you think I’m not capable of being a receptionist? I feel like I went to college just to meet people and get out of my parent’s house because my degree hasn’t helped me at all.
