Get my citizenship?
    #2955493 - 08/02/04 11:08 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I am thinking of applying for US citizenship but I don't really know if I need to. I'm a permanent resident and I really don't see the reason for getting my citizenship. Anyone know what the benefits are of being a citizen? Plus I don't want to get sent off to war if they start the draft.

I would do nothing that shows the rest of the world that you are American.

There's nothing wrong with being American - it's just the fact that the people at the top get to redefine just what that is.

Half jesting, half serious. IMO having the name label "American" isn't a really good thing to have right now. Am I proud to be an American? Of course, for various reasons, but mainly ones dating further back in time. To be American is a gift in this world anymore; we're givin a paradise that millions couldn't even dream of. To be American is an opportunity to go anywhere and do anything we'd like... to live in complete happiness if we simply allow ourselves to while having every and any material surrounding(s) we'd like, if we just work a little bit for it (in comparison to places that work ungodly shifts and means to be paid in pennies). Aside from the rediculous amount of corruption thats going on here, being American is incredible... and we shed blood and tears to get to this point for ourselves.

However...

If I went to Italy, or perhaps France (amongst other places), there is no doubt in my mind I would be hated for being American and I'd certainly be shown that through various methods. Its discrimination in a kind of sense, but for good reason... I mean to state one simple example look at the name Bush is giving/has givin us. We have very little friends in the world anymore, and it seemingly has become a danger anymore to show our faces outside this country. Because of our government and their fuck-ups in the past and present we, as citizens of this country, could be looked upon as solely responsible for the messes its created. Are we? Yes and no. We have the power to change all of it, but our options on the political ball-field are pretty much limited to Democrat and Republican due to propaganda, the media, manipulation, and lack of brains on many of our parts. Unfortunately, we're just hated for the governments actions, and we're viewed as stuck up, fat, cow eating ignorant pigs.

To put it bluntly I'm proud to be American, but absolutely ashamed and scared to announce the name anywhere but the homeland.

rofl being american sucks. my family is getting together to plan to move out of this shithole of a country because we are scared of the future. plus the fact that other parties aren't getting a say ever in the government. its this democrat/republican bullshit. yyaaawwwnnn. most of my family is liberal/green party. i'm a fence sitter and don't really announce my views because they are so mixed. but i'm sick of the shitty government.

this country sucks. yeah theres the 50's look on life on how lucky we are. blah blah blah. IMO, you don't need possessions to be happy.

if there is benefits for citizenship then go ahead and take them. i'm sure its better then nothing if you are here to stay. least you weren't born here. the one thing about this country though, is it is the closest thing to ultimate freedom. that is the only reason i am proud to be american. its freedom. something that is a fantasy in other countries.
