    What are advantages and disadvantages of USA citizenship

    Advantage: Shorter lines at cross border in EU. There are lines for EU citizens (90% of people arriving) and ALL passports and I always go with US passport, so its faster for me to go thru. I have also EU passport. When you got ticket in the EU I always show US docs, so my EU driver...

    Aren't they making you to commit false statement?

    Before the oath (in NY) they give voter registration forms and they ask to fill them out and then they collect it. Everyone checks that is US Citizen, but that is not true, since there was no oath before that. Everone is making false statement and court allows it! We are us citizens after oath...
