    On this morning's MSN.com, there is a link for the latest "citizenship" test sample questions... unfortunately I don't have the skill set to cut and paste the link here... but taking the 20 questions - some more difficult than others, I was able to pass with 95% (not too shabby for a natural born American!)

    At least the test wasn't a "gimme"... some of the questions took some thought...

    If anyone can post, it'd be appreciated!

    regards all,

    Jay

    100% - but I "cheated". I became a US citizen in 2005 so I had to study this stuff.

    I read somewhere that most natural born Americans will score about 65% on the Citizenship Exam. I live near Detroit, and I doubt the scores there would average more than 40% - they can barely read and write.

    I guess I can stay in my native country, the USA (born here many, many years ago). My 100% says I remember my Civics, U.S. History and other related courses from the 1950's era.

    Speaking of dual citizenships; I've always wondered why a citizen of another country can become a U.S. citizen and still retain their original citizenship, but if they are a U.S. citizen they must renounce it to become a citizen of another country.

    Whyizzat?

    Dunno there kiv-c, My parents were both born in the UK and thier families emigrated to Canada around 1915. They came to the States about 1930 and were naturalized in the '40s. My mother always said she would be English till she died.

    A foreign born child of an American Serviceman who married a non citizen is able to retain both American Citizenship and the mothers homeland citizenship. It can be kind of nice unless you happen to get drafted for military service in both contries at the same time.

    To kiv-c, if you become a citizen of a foreign country you do not renounce your U.S. citizenship any more but there are serious questions on the application to renew your U.S. passport.

    Here is a little Constitutional trivia questions for you guys: (1)Is there an active ammendment out there for the states to ratify? (2) What ammendment was "
    Left" off the Constitution when it was approved by the states?

    Dual citizenship is a problem for the USA. If we had "immigrants" completely assimilating into our culture with complete and absolute loyalty to the constitution (written in English), then we would not be having the problems that we do today.

    I am so sick of immigrants and illegal immigrants coming to America to just suck us like a tick on a hound. They should publicly renounce their foreign citizenship upon becoming naturalized U.S. citizens. Anyone caught crossing the border to vote, whether it be a NATZ, USC going back to their home country to vote, i.e., Canada, Mexico, I don't care if they fly across the pond and vote in France, England, etc..., they should automatically have their U.S. citizenship revoked and be deported back to their beloved country that they needed to vote in as a DUAL CITIZEN!

    Flame away, but either we are truly Americans or we are doomed... Those that have DUAL CITIZENSHIP need to freaking choose and then live with it and in it!!! Wow, mildly clever for me.... HAHA

    Don't need to take the test - I have a birth certificate - The long form signed by a doctor and the hospital admin.
