America’s national success has strengthened the resistance of looking at other governments for inspiration. America can learn from other government’s failures. The effects of communism and socialism on other economies help America’s government to not make the same mistakes and to find better solutions. We are the land of opportunity and are separated from other countries because of our successful free market ideologies that promote hard work and entrepreneurship from our citizens. This is why America is not a failure like many
Does America still provide the American Dream? It does, after reading the three poems I have, learned that America does still provide access to the American Dream. And is alive, the examples I will give you, shows how alive the dream is in America. Introducing the first example I read, is the poem called "Ellis Island" the author Joseph Bruchac, you'll find that he's an American writer with both European immigrant ancestors and Native American, The speaker of this poem is not an immigrant just arriving in the United States. He's the grandson of immigrants who came to the U.S. almost a century ago. He rejoices for the Slovak immigrants who found new opportunities in the U.S., but for the ancestors who were here before the Europeans, the American
America has the ability to make difference in people lives. As said before, people came to the United States to seeks better lives and more opportunities. I believe the American Dream also means being equally treated. Equal does not mean we are all the same. We are all different, which is what makes American the way it is today. We are all human and deserve to be treated as such with dignity and respect. Although America has a hard time showing that we are all equal, I still believe it is a part of the American Dream. The United States have run into many brick walls trying to make it seem like all of us are equal, but it has not been a complete success. Many problems with race and gender is still relevant today. For example, the Black Lives
What hope is given to Americans from the history? In American history, there were conflicts such as wars, civil rights movement, and multiple attacks through these the hopeful spirit of America shines.
To an extent, opportunity and progress existed in the United States throughout the first half of the 19th century. There were improvements in transportation, commercialization, industrialization, changes in immigration, rights, and temperance. Many people contributed to these opportunities and progressions within the United States. New systems, markets, and ways of living evolved in this time period and it all contributes to what happened within the United States during the first half of the 19th century.
The song presents America as a land of opportunity. It represents the idea that one can achieve a high level of success and wealth in the United States. It accomplishes this by presenting two perspectives of the American dream in the first and second verse of the song. Then the two stories are tied together with a chorus that instils hope for these two Americas.
The United States is known as the land of opportunity. With this belief present around the world, an individual from any country is confident that once he arrives on American soil, he will be able to create a better future for himself and his family based on his own hard-earned merit. Coupling this prevailing belief of opportunity with the country’s separation of Church and State, a powerful duo emerges. Immigrants are willing to seek residence in the capital of the free world. While such a promised land does exist, for the United States does in fact exist, living in this country is not so black and white. Immigrants learn that the transition into the American culture is not an easy one. When the basic freedoms of immigrants are denied,
America has long been known to be the land of opportunity. In 2010 that included 7.2 million people of Asian descent (Department of Labor, 2010) who moved to America to make a living for themselves and their family. Among these moving to American are the people of Vietnam. Always remembered for the violent Vietnam war, Vietnam was once called home to many of these immigrants who have come to the United States in hopes of a better life However, finding employment can often be a challenge for these people who face learning a new language and culture to name a few.
America is still the land of opportunity because of the few restrictions present among the countless possibilities. For decades America has been known as the land of opportunity for the evident reason that America has the potential to fulfill a person's dreams. In America everyone has a say in their future, it is up to one's self to decide“what [he/she] wants to do with [his/her] [life]” (Obrien304). America provides its citizens with a variety of options whether it be pertaining to different career paths or for educational reasons. Many immigrants continue to come to America for this reason, the American way presents them with life options they may not have had in their country. “For Americans the wide and general dream has a name,” it's
‘Land of opportunity’ to me means, a land where things are easier for everyone residing in it. Where everybody gets the same benefits, has access to affordable resources, and the possibility for its entire population to be capable of reaching their goals; essentially, living a happy and healthy lifestyle on account of its government. People from all over the world visualize this country as a land of dreams, a land that benefits and allows them to have a better life for themselves and their families, and for the most part, they would be correct. America is the land of opportunity because, even though, there is plenty of discrimination to go around, our government programs and free public education are only two of the many reasons why this country
America has a distinctive and abundant history that has molded this nation into what it currently is; but how is the past relevant to the future? As the philosopher George Santayana once stated; “'Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Essentially, if Americans are ignorant of their past, how can they advance forward into the future? The key to a successful future is located within the past.
America is said to be the land of opportunities, a land of chances, a land to start a new life. Many people were seduced by this sweet lie, mostly by the fact that they can start fresh or start a new life. Personally, I disagree with these statements because many facts have shown that most people that immigrate to the US is not as successful as others and another example is how African-Americans were denied being successful. The reasons that America is not a land of opportunities are many people are discriminated based on their race, most white people sees other races as unwanted and led to segregation, and most laws before the end of 1920s is biased to most whites.
America is seen as the land of endless opportunity, the place where anything can happen. To some people, you can come to America with nothing but the clothes on your back and you can become the greatest person in the world. To a select group of people, however, it can be trial after trial with no payoff. Some may see America as an opportunity country, but only if you are a certain race. If you are any type of race besides Caucasian, chances are that it can be a struggle because most of the opportunities are given to the whites because they are seen as the “superior race”, so they try to support each other and keep the others out.
