It's actually called the land of equal opportunity, NOT of equal outcomes or social justice or economic justice, we are not a collective we are a free market nation of exceptionalism.

Except this opinion assumes the "opportunity" actually exists, when in fact we have a huge and growing middle population that is moving economically backward, which is proof that overall, opportunity has diminished substantially at many levels. You act like the poor are getting wealthy.... Means testing would stop abuse.

I see commenters here are good at hating, but lack real solutions to 50 and 100 year old problems...like the FED. As a God fearing conservative, I don't like it. Focus on workable solutions for a change that work for all US citizens...like making a second currency...a US Treasury Dollar, made equal to a Federal Reserve Note, by law.

Our former meritocracy is becoming a government cleptocracy.
The last year has been a tough one for conservatives. The hope that four years of failed policy would be enough to repudiate the liberal/progressive ideology of the Obama administration ended when the majority of the American public voted to maintain their entitlements -- so long as someone else paid for them. And the conservative response to the debacle has been for the various factions within the movement to declare war on each other.

It's time for conservatives to give serious thought to what they believe and how they can make a more persuasive case that conservative principles offer...
