That is not the case for most people on this planet who either never get the opportunities or do not have the support to seize them, and many within our country. Most of these things are simply where the darn you are born which no one has control of. We are all lucky we didn't wake up in N. Korea which basically people us for life right, simple luck.
I firmly believe that we will never be stronger than our weakest link and all of "every man for himself" thinking is what is going to hurt our country most of all. We are all in it together, as much as many people wish it were not so.
The saddest thing is extremists from both sides think the other side is the SOLE problem. Those people ARE the problem.
