Congratulations on becoming a citizen of the greatest nation on the Earth.
What country lost you as a citizen?
Greece/EU but I don't have to surrender my greek passport.
Listen, I've chosen to live here and pay taxes for twenty five years. Even before today, for the last 20 years when people asked where I am from,
I've always said American.
Think of it this way, we've been engaged for 25 years, today we got married.
I feel the same way----I've been engaged to Amerca for oh....hey...how funny....25 years now for real. Moved here when I was 7 years old with my
family. Have paid taxes and carried a green card, married a US citizen, I consider myself American, as I'm sure you probably did....I mean I have
lived here most of my life.
CONGRATULATIONS to you!!!!!
I too am hoping to be married to America possibly sometime next year.
I'm not one to say hey, this country is better than your country--neener neener neener....that's just silly to me. But America is an amazing
country. No matter the politics. There are great people here, and the country itself is beautiful. I think that we get misjudged so much by people
from other countries. We're not all fat, lazy, rednecks that are uneducated, ignorant, materialistic, and vain. Although I do live in redneck
Here is my question to you.....do you still have family living in Greece? All of mine is except immediate---parents, brother, sister....
And does Greece acknowledge your US citizenship? I was looking at Dual Nationality and from what I read if I apply for US citizenship then the UK
just doesn't acknowledge my US citizenship. That they just would still consider me a UK citizen. And that America wouldn't acknowledge my UK
citizenship anymore, so to them I'd just be American.
My mom has always had dual nationality and she has always used her right to vote. Something that I've always wanted to do.....
It's important people. Get out there and vote. No matter who it's for.....use your power.
Once again congrats from me!!!! Maybe next year I'll have a similar post one day. For now I'm just glad that the US and UK are good allies.
