/The American Dream is a national ethos of the United States, a set of ideals in which freedom includes the equal opportunity for prosperity and success achieved through hard work.

Everyone is equal and they are all endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights which include Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. If you do not agree with this, you should leave the country./

The problem could be solved just doing two things which you will hate:
1) a basic guaranteed income so no one falls through the cracks. The need for this is becoming more obvious than ever as jobs disappear due to automation. 2) an income and estate limit the latter probably for about $20 million. Reach that and every penny over goes to the government to help fund number 1. Now there's plenty leeway in between but if you are so materialistic and greedy that $20 million isn't enough then perhaps you belong in an insane asylum.
My system is one everyone would love:

1) Universal employment making good money so everyone can pay their own way.

And the jobs come from where? The government? Well that screws up your number 2 proposal.

2) A smaller government with a balanced budget and no taxation.

And you propose to pay for that tiny government how? You can have a smaller government with my proposal.
3) Unlimited freedom to earn and save or spend as much money as you want.

Would be gamed by the selfish and greedy. The wannabe napoleons. We don't need any stinkin' napoleons. They fuck everything up.

It's simply that our system has become dysfunctional for it's citizens and time for change.
Our free market system was voted in by the *people* who hold the power - it's the individuals who don't believe in freedom and liberty and equality that are dysfunctional. /No government should be allowed to spend more money than it has in the bank./

So cut defense spending. Oh, can't do that, America must be number one and exceptional. What a fool's dream!

Political power is inherent in the *people.* When individuals rebel and break the law they should be punished.

So you would have thrown the founding fathers in prison?
