It's legal for Americans to have
Does that mean that such citizens swear allegiance to another country? Most Americans are citizens by birth; at what point do
these citizens take a judicial sworn oath to pledge allegiance to the U.S.? Maybe Ted Cruz is a Canadian agent, placed here to secretly undermine the
U.S. govt, economy, and society.
The U.S. military swears in non-citizens. One of the first Iraq War casualties was Jose Gutierrez, a Guatemalan immigrant. Here is what he swore in
order to fulfill the military requirements
"I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and
domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders
of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."
In order to fulfill the requirements of the U.S. Constitution, here is the oath required of jurors in CA
"Do you, and each of you, understand and agree that you will accurately and truthfully answer, under penalty of perjury, all questions propounded to
you concerning your qualifications and competency to serve as a trial juror in the matter pending before this court, and that failure to do so may
subject you to criminal prosecution? Do you, and each of you, understand and agree that you will well and truly try the cause now pending before this
court, and a true verdict render according only to the evidence presented to you and to the instructions of the court?"
Here is what a Green Card holder signs to
"As a permanent resident, you are:
Required to obey all laws of the United States the states, and localities
Required to file your income tax returns and report your income to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and state taxing authorities (see IRS link to
Expected to support the democratic form of government and not to change the government through illegal means
Required, if you are a male age 18 through 25, to register with the Selective Service"
Technically, Green Card holders are not considered foreign
To many, the Supreme Court decision Citizens United opened the door to foreign influence over sovereignty and security of the United States. That was
