Pursuit of happiness is guarenteed; attaining it is not

In response to 141104: Reminder appreciated, posted by Janet M2 on Wednesday, 5 July 2017, at 10:10 a.m.

In our free-market (mostly), highly competitive society where the national ethos is more like "what's in it for me" than "we're all in this together", all Americans must strive for their own definition of "happiness". In America, men (and women) are not,indeed,"equal", other than in the sight of God. Our nation is not "equal", "fair", nor "just" in many ways. Learning to survive and thrive in that environment is critical.

Everyone has "a chance", but some "start the race" from further back in the pack and their road is more uphill than others. As in all races, there will be winners and losers, but failure is never a per-ordained absolute.

What America has isn't perfect, but it's better than any other nation I know of. I've been to a number of them, never as a resident, and wouldn't trade being American for any other option.
