if only. . .
What countries can one move to and reasonably become a citizen? i have heard people say you can become canadian fairly easily. you only need to buy a little land, visit that land once-a year-for four year, then viola you can be a citizen. so that's not so hard. but really who wants to move to canada? i am sure it is nice for a bit, but I imagine anyone saying "i'm from canada!" with any pride. i realized i could become israeli without too much trouble thanks to israel's "law of return" which let's you claim jewness and become israeli if you have so much as seen an episode of seinfeld. i have heard israel is like california and hawai'i rolled into one (with a dash of suicide bombings). but really i can't imagine being israeli being any more fun than canadian. i can't think of any other countries that let you get citizenship without a lifetime of difficulty. Can I become mexican? if you sneak into mexico do they care? if you move to another country do you still have to pay taxes in the usa? i originally thought about this as a joke in the case of a palin presidency. now i am just thinking it would be cool to get as many citizenships as you can. it makes you that much more free. and that is more fun. it would be okay to say i am mexican.

i know dummy! google the word joke! sneaking into mexico, it is ironic. because we get mad at them for sneaking into the u.s. guatamala is to mexico as mexico is to the u.s.a., they won\'t mind us coming in cause we got our fat useless american dollars!

also, mexico is very serious about illegal immigration. lots of immigrants come into mexico from guatemala and honduras and it\'s a major drain on the mexican economy, not to mention all the violent crime associated. sheesh, GOOGLE, for christsake!

It\'s about as hard to become a Canadian citizen as it is to become an American citizen. Lots and lots and lots of paperwork and it takes years. To become a Mexican citizen, you must own property (not just a plot of land), pay taxes, and go through lots and lots and lots of paperwork for several years. Lew, you are not Jewish because your mom is a gentile. If you move to another country, you do still have to pay taxes in the US. The US does not recognize dual citizenship, but they really have no way of knowing if you get citizenship in another country and I don\'t think there\'s anything they\'d ever actually do to find it out and/or penalize you for it. As long as it took you to type this post, you could\'ve googled all the answers to your questions.

and he\'s right no dual citizen ship. However if you remain an american citizen and live in another country (an expatriot) you are exempt from certain taxes. Its a good way to make bank.

Being a Texan citizen is a sub-citizenship of American citizenship. By gaining citizenship in another country you are implicitly giving up US citizenship. Whether or not the big bad gubbament ever finds out it is another story. You could conceivably hold two citizenships, but you won’t be legally a citizen of the USA (you wetback).

Then how am I a texas citizen and a u.s. citizen? i thiiiink the u.s. doesn\'t recognize dual citizenship, but that doesn\'t mean you can\'t be a citizen elsewhere. the u.s. is just ambivalent about your other citizenship.

You cannot hold dual citizenship with America and any other country. If you wanted to become a Canadian citizen you must relinquish your American citizenship. On Mars we don’t have such passé rules, all hail the red planet.
