Travelling on a Swiss passport is almost as good as having an invisibility cloak - no one will really bother you.

maybe I will,too.

I’m of Swiss descent- and I meet their gun ownership requirements.

This was smart on her part and her family’s part.

A second passport is an extra security against the United States.

Totally misleading and disingenuous, i.e. a lie. Her husband is Swiss so when he registered his wife and kids were automatically registered. No action by Michele to do this. Main Stream/Drive By Media lies. Spread the word. Put them out of business.

"Congresswoman Bachmann's husband is of Swiss descent so she has been eligible for dual-citizenship since they got married in 1978,"

So basically, it's no big deal.

I don’t like dual citizenship. It should be illegal.

A man (or woman) cannot serve two masters. Besides, aside from the gun issue, the Swiss are a bunch of socialists like the rest of the pestilential Europeans.

The claim that Bachmann Dual-Citizenship (and divided loyalty) was automatic and not under her control is FALSE!

Eligibility is automatic with her marriage - but she would NOT have acquired Swiss citizenship unless she VOLUNTARILLY applied for it.

LINK to Swiss Gov't webpage on Citizenship through marraige:

Excerpt:

Facilitated naturalisation

Go to page «Naturalisation»

Foreign spouses of Swiss nationals who have lived in Switzerland for a year may apply for facilitated naturalisation after three years of marriage, provided they have lived in Switzerland for a total of five years. People who have close ties with Switzerland may apply for facilitated naturalisation even if they are resident abroad. In such cases, however, they must have been married to a Swiss spouse for at least six years.

Applicants are: particularly foreign spouses of Swiss nationals and foreign children, one of whose parents is Swiss

Application to be submitted to:

Confederation
FOM, Naturalisation Section, Quellenweg 6,
3003 Bern-Wabern

DUAL CITIZENSHIP = DIVIDED LOYALTY (For the Right as well as the Left.)

I have no problems with this, except if she were become President and not renounce this Swiss citizenship. Otherwise, is hard to complain about a country that requires everyone to maintain and keep guns.

My kind of place. Pretty unique for almost the whole world.

Yes indeed...and many other elites at the top of the food chain are doing likewise. It's their bug out residence as many purchase homes abroad. Hollywood is also doing likewise. Anywhere that revenues are high they're obtaining what is needed to bug out when the time comes.

This move disqualifies her from the presidency.

Michele Bachmann becomes a Swiss citizen

Then she is a TRAITOR. She should resign her seat in Congress IMMEDIATELY, or prepare to be impeached.

I am SICK AND TIRED of this dual-loyalty nonsense. Obama's not even a natural-born citizen, and now we have a fake Tea-Party Congresswoman who fancies herself both an American and a Swiss Miss? To hell with that, I say.
