      and the realization of the dream to families, children, college students, old people, workers - all of us who believe in the American Dream.

      That if we work hard and play by the rules, we will support each other, environmentalists, gays, labor, progressives, liberals,  and so forth.

      The common foe are those who want to squirrel away their benefits from prior work and deny it to others who have yet to realize the American Dream.

      We are in it together. The bigger the movement, the better.
