Political Parties

The American Dream was once equated with certain principles like freedom, liberty, safety, justice, equality, and happiness. Today, it is often equated with things – like prosperity, material comforts, home ownership, higher wages, or career success. My question is - What do we want the American Dream to really be?  Can we [Americans] reach a general consensus on the direction we want our country to take and what our highest priorities ought to be as we head further into the 21st century?  How do the major political parties in our country define the American Dream? What is their vision and plan for taking America into the future? The following are links to web sites or documents by political parties laying out their views and/or plans for the future of our country:

Our political system in the U.S. is not rising to the challenges facing us. We have become too polarized. Today, collaboration and compromise have become  'dirty' words.
