It's true, yours truly has been a permanent resident since 5/83. Never really gave much thought to becoming a citizen. A green card is essentially
the same thing and you don't have to deal with jury duty.
Though I've always enjoyed political discourse, I, until recently never felt compelled to participate in the political process.
I have read many threads on ATS in which members suggest that one vote is irrelevant, or that both candidates are in with the NWO, and a myriad of
other reasons or excuses for not voting. And whilst I respect my fellow members' opinions, I happen to disagree with them.
For the first time, I felt it was important to me for my own reasons, to vote. Important enough to become a US citizen just to do it.
Keep in mind that this decision could not have been made spontaneously. I had to apply back in February, before I even joined ATS and engaged in
political discourse here. Which I would have never done if I thought I wasn't going to vote.
That's it really. SDog is an American as of today, so I'll try to act appropriately.
