Welcome to Obama’s America. Where everything is given, nothing is earned, citizenship is cheapened, and nothing says “I love my new country” like refusing to defend it.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services on Tuesday said it will no longer require incoming U.S. citizens to pledge that they will “bear arms on behalf of the United States” or “perform noncombatant service” in the Armed Forces as part of the naturalization process.
Those lines are in the Oath of Allegiance that people recite as they become U.S. citizens. But USCIS said people “may” be able to exclude those phrases for reasons related to religion or if they have a conscientious objection.
USCIS said people with certain religious training or with a “deeply held moral or ethical code” may not have to say the phrases as they are naturalized.
The agency said people don’t have to belong to a specific church or religion to use this exemption, and may attest to U.S. officials administering the oath that they have these beliefs.
USCIS said it would take “feedback” on this policy change through August 4, 2015.
Believe me, I already gave them some feedback.
I always though that along with citizenship in a free republic, comes a sense of duty and obligation. Under Barky’s ‘fundamental transformation‘ America has been pummeled into socialist mush. The average rank and file American couldn’t care less. Half the time their heads are buried in their Iphones and the other half, up their ass.
Eventually, the oath will eliminate the requirements to renounce their heretofore countries, and to honor the Constitution. They can get all the benefits of living here, including the protection of a military sworn to defend their freedoms and their way of life. All they’ll have to do is squat. Just like illegals.
