'Is a dream a lie if it don't come true/or is it something worse?'

"You find a job, but unlike your daddy's job it isn't unionised, you work for less and you have very little security. When the economy slows, you know your job is at risk. America grows richer for some but not for you. That hurts."
"At the end of the River, Bruce writes, 'Is a dream a lie if it don't come true/or is it something worse?'
Forty years of hurt have driven some people to answer Springsteen's question, that the American dream is something worse than a lie, and from that bleak answer they are looking for a political leader who echoes their anger. So my answer to presenters' questions whether Trump can win, is now and was before the primaries started: 'Yes.'"
