Absolutely not. The promise of America is that you have the opportunity for everything you desire. It does not come for free. It never has. We live in a time where there are better than generations before us. America allows us to use our skills, ambitions, passions to create the life that we want. This is what is promised to all people who live here. Also, there are social safety nets for folks that can not participate due to illness etc., but not if you can.
