Cartoon: How The American Dream Purchased On Credit Became The American Nightmare

With an endless supply of cartoons striving to fill a niche of information lack created by the silent but deadly combination of attention deficit disorder and a fear and loathing of anything math related, below we present the latest animated explanation of how the recent transition of the American Dream (purchased entirely on credit), was virtually guaranteed to become an American Nightmare... and how this is nothing new in the grand scheme of things.
From the description by THEAMERICANDREAMFILM.COM:

The AMERICAN DREAM is a 30 minute animated film that shows you how you've been scammed by the most basic elements of our government system. All of us Americans strive for the American Dream, and this film shows you why your dream is getting farther and farther away. Do you know how your money is created? Or how banking works? Why did housing prices skyrocket and then plunge? Do you really know what the Federal Reserve System is and how it affects you every single day? THE AMERICAN DREAM takes an entertaining but hard hitting look at how the problems we have today are nothing new, and why leaders throughout our history have warned us and fought against the current type of financial system we have in America today. You will be challenged to investigate some very entrenched and powerful institutions in this nation, and hopefully encouraged to help get our nation back on track.
