  美国梦指的就是只要努力就一定能得到自己想要的任何东西。美国的孩子从小就被灌输了只要够努力,他们甚至可以成为美国总统。只要符合三点要求,几乎每个人都有可能成为总统:国籍、居住地和年龄。让我们一个一个来看。
  想成为美国总统你必须是美国公民,或者是美国合法公民,拥有投票权。只有一种情况例外,就是一个在外国出生的美国人,他的父母是美国国籍,这种情况下你依然可以成为美国总统。其他诸如移民,即使是很年轻甚至还是婴儿的时候来的美国,还是不能拥有美国国籍并成为总统。
  第二个要求就是居住年限。要拥有美国国籍并且成为美国总统,你就必须在美国住满14年。这条规定限制了那些虽说是在美国出生,但一生都在国外的人成为美国总统。
  最后,还有一个年龄限制。要成为美国总统你必须年满35岁。目前为止美国最年轻的总统是约翰·肯尼迪,43岁就成为了总统。成为总统的年龄没有上限,罗纳德·威尔逊·里根76岁才当上总统,也是迄今为止年纪最大的总统。
  只要符合这三个要求谁都有资格竞选美国总统。而对于你是否是女人、种族、宗教信仰等都没有限制。这就是美国梦!
Explanation:   
  The American Dream is the idea that Americans can do and become anything they want to through hard work. Children are brought up (or raised) to believe that if they work hard enough, they can even become the president of the United States. Almost any American can become president. There are three requirements for becoming president: citizenship, residency, and age. Let’s look at them one at a time. 
 
  To become president of the United States you must be a U.S. citizen, or someone who legally is part of the United States and who can vote here. The only exception is if you are a U.S. citizen who was born abroad (or in another country) but whose parents were both U.S. citizens.  In this case, you can still become president. Anyone else, such as an immigrant who came to the United States at a very young age, even as a baby, and became a citizen is not eligible (or does not meet the requirements) to become president. 
 
  The second requirement for becoming president is residency (or where a person has lived and for how long). To be president, in addition to being a citizen you must also have lived in the United States for 14 years. This requirement prevents (or makes it not possible for) someone who was born in the United States but then spent his or her whole life in another country from becoming president. 
 
  Finally, there is an age requirement for becoming president. The president of the United States must be at least 35 years old. So far, the youngest president elected has been John F. Kennedy, who was 43 when he became president. There is no maximum age limit (or upper end). So far, the oldest president has been Ronald Reagan, who was 76 years old when his presidency ended. 
 

  And those are the only three requirements for being president. There are no restrictions or limitations on whether the president is a man or woman, what skin color the president has, what religion the president follows, or anything else. It’s all part of the idea of the great American Dream.
