The American Dream; the belief that the success of an individual; independent of race, gender, sexual orientation or circumstance of birth, is solely contingent on one's hard work and talent, is dead in the water as inequality continues to widen at an alarming rate.  Despite the assurances given during the State of the Union championing the recovery, the economy and the middle class, this Union is broken.  The promises of a return to governing with transparency, accountability and the rule of law were hollow and secrecy, impunity and corruption have become more entrenched and intractable.
