It's his first cover story for TIME in the United States.

    The American dream died in Sarah Palin's bump-it.

    To restore the American dream - first, go back in time and NEVER let George Bush near the White House.

    "How To Restore The American Dream".....I am not sure I trust anything written by someone affiliated w/Time Magazine and especially with a name like Fareed Zakaria. However I can tell you how to restore the American Dream. Return to the place where it was lost, it was lost;
    1. When people lost the "work ethic" which teaches; an honest days work for an honest days pay. In other words, no more WELFARE/ENTITLEMENTS.....no one should expect anything for nothing!
    2. When people became more concerned about "political correctness" more than truth.
    3. When people left God out of American life

    Restoring the American dream begins with rejecting the bagger billionaires and republicans who ship American jobs overseas.

    The ONLY way to save America is the politicians have to stop fighting with each other and WORK TOGETHER. Nothing, NOTHING else will save America.

    @ Felton: vis-a-vis the idea of forming the American Party, count me in.

    @bruce "we the people"? Get real man. Calling the President a nazi, having pictures of him as a witch doctor, second amendmen remedies by that lunatic angle in NV, the half term still trying to link the President with domestic terrorists while she and her eunuch husband are members of a secession party, bachman calling out for revolution, paul wanting to go back to before the Civil Rights Act, wilson yelling "liar" during a Presidential speech, I could go on and on but we all get the message.
    The teabaggers are the KKK in drag. If you are not a black person then you can't talk about what it feels like to be persecuted by the white man. Do we really want to go back there? Not to mention the rethugs telling us what to do in our bedrooms and with our bodies. NOBODY TELLS ME WHAT TO DO!! Particularly a group of racist uneducated trailer trash bigots! Look at who you have running for congress. They are a bunch of lying lunatics starting with your "leader" who is also the punch line to any joke around.

    The republican attacks that are being funded by billionaires and foreign interests is comparable to the last ditch effort of the Germans in the Battle of the Bulge. I think we are seeing the end of the republican party, and after this election cycle, people will reject their bigotry, hate, lies, and ideology. When the entire republican campaign centers on tax cuts for the wealthy, repeal health reform, repeal Wall Street regulations, repeal the minimum wage, attack social security and medicare, refuse to help GIs and the VA, support the abuses of the health insurance industry, and ship jobs overseas, while driving up the national debt, you know that even baggers are going to reject their stupidity.

    I like Fareed Zakaria because he sees things from ALL ANGLES (not Sharon Angle) and is fair in his assessment. He was fortunate enough to LIVE two worlds and he can see the difference!!!

    Reading just part of the story now, dang, it really makes SENSE!! The jobs as we know it – are NOT COMING BACK... Period – so we BETTER move with the FLOW or get left behind!!!

    I also agree with President Obama – EDUCATION, EDUCATION, and EDUCATION!!!!! The jobs are in the SCIENCE, MATH and TECHNOLOGY fields and our kids are ‘lacking’ there!!! Our kids need to learn how to THINK and they need to decide NOW what they have to OFFER in those fields!! President Obama is looking towards the FUTURE and most Americans are worrying about whether or not he can be ELECTED AGAIN in 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stick with him as he MOVES AMERICA FORWARD!!!!!!

    USA is still the BEST COUNTRY to live in and we have to STOP being ANGRY @ each other!!! The TAX CUTS for the TOP 3% should EXPIRE and be a GOOD THING!! The 3% should not argue about that!!!! Also, make EVERYONE pay taxes even if it is $25 – PERIOD!!!! If a person is making $45,000 a year but after all of the deductions and tax breaks and credits, they end up paying NOTHING – still make them pay $25!!!

    I will read the rest of this very skillful written article because I want to LEARN SOMETHING!!! I hope everyone do the same before RUNNING OFF WITH THEIR UNEDUCATED MOUTH!!

    This is T'SAH from Virginia and I approve this message!!!
