In this argumentive essay I will defend that the American dream is still accessible. To focus directly on issues related to the American dream; a good education, a safe and affordable place to live, a good job and a bright future. But the role of the government is to help all Americans achieve the dream. The National League of Cities found that two- thirds of Americans believe the American dream is becoming harder to achieve, especially for young families, and that poor quality public education and financial insecurity are the most significant barriers.

Right now I’m still on my first step which is to get my education then on to my next step, then the next on my American dream.
The American dream is still accessible by what also America makes it. For example, think about people who make their way up the board with promotions or just wanting it more because they feel they can go higher than others in success. To me that’s what America and the American dream is all about. President Obama said the definition of the American dream is “the true genius of American, a faith in the simple dreams, that we can tuck in our children at night and know they are fed and clothed and safe…
