Welcome the the Family!

Will you be starting a Canadian festival? You can sell Coffee Crisps, and hire Alan Thicke as the master of ceremonies. I'll make sure to keep my feet off the Chesterfield. ;-)

Wanna know something funny ? I NEVER heard of “Canadian Bacon” until I came to the U.S. - no kidding ! Canadians call it peameal bacon, or back bacon, but NEVER “Canadian bacon” ! haahaa !

Thanks for the good wishes! Looking forward to voting - for the very FIRST time - in the NH Primary Jan. 8 ! I want “my guy” Duncan Hunter to have a really good showing in the NH Primary !

Just now saw your post. It’s great to see someone genuinely elated and proud to become a U.S. citizen! You know more about what it means to be a contributing member of society with a mindset based in reality than 65% of our homegrown population. Glad you’re home.

Thank you for your kind and welcoming words !

I studied very hard for the Citizenship Test - I was very much over-prepared - but that’s OK - I learned a LOT of really interesting stuff about our country ! I got 100% on the test. Many of my U.S. born co-workers and friends did not know the answer to many of the questions!

I got sworn in a week ago today! What a GREAT CHRISTMAS PRESENT !!!

Congratulations!

Nevertheless I have to say as being a German I could not imagine giving up my German citizenship for becoming American. I do not say that I am content with everything in my country but it is the place were I have my roots in all regards. Therefore I have to say that the US are a nation I keep warm and good feelings for, but America will never be the place where I want to be a citizen. It is a matter of love for the origin. Therefore we Germans call our country “Vaterland” (Father’s Land).

I totally understand what you are saying. I will never forget my Canadian roots! Canada is a wonderful country, with many freedoms, and like the U.S. is blessed in many ways.

After living as a Legal Permanent Resident in the U.S. for the past 35 years, I have a DEEP love for this country and all it stands for, in spite of it’s faults. My decision to become a citizen is not taken lightly or frivolously - it’s something I have pondered for a long time.

Canada will always consider me to be a Canadaian citizen (Canada recognizes dual-citizenship - some countries don’t). My becoming a U.S. Citizen had no “anti-Canada” connotation to it whatsoever, but was a desire to make a LEGAL committment to the U.S. - a country that has blessed me in a million ways! (I already had a “HEART” committment.)

I want to be able to participate in voting, and “giving back” to this country in whatever ways I can. I really think if you had lived in the U.S. for a significant period of time, you would share these sentiments also, without abandoning your love for your “Fatherland”! (Incidentally, I am of German descent, on my father’s side.)

Being a resident for 35 years is indeed a argument. Beside of that is America still the cradle of freedom to me :). Especially if a dual citizenship is possible (Germany i.e. does not allow a dual citizenship) I also would not have that much doubts. You are right - such are enough reasons to participate as a full citizen in your home.

As I said: Congratulations!

Thank you Pollywog!

On Jan.8th I proudly cast my very FIRST vote EVER in the NH Primary for DUNCAN HUNTER - the only candidate whose 27 year track record matches his TALK! Duncan Hunter is the only candidate with credibility on illegal immigration, because he has actually DONE something about it - (the double border fence Calif/Mexico).

God Bless Congressman Hunter !!!

That is SO COOL ! Congratulations to you too !

I think when one comes here by CHOICE, and goes through all the documention, fees, and red tape to become a LEGAL US CITIZEN, it gives you a greater appreciation of your Citizenship than someone who was born here. I was very much OVER-prepared for the Citizenship Test - I had studied way above and beyond what was required - but I enjoyed every minute of it! I am amazed at how many of my friends and co-workers who were born in the U.S. do not know the answers to some of the basic citizenship questions!

I voted for the FIRST time in my life on Jan.8th in the NH Primary. I was SO excited !
