    Yes, citizenship carries obligations. We live here in a relatively peaceful country. It is peaceful because we all carry certain burdens. One of them is the vote. If somebody does not vote, he has no right to complain afterward if things are not to his liking. In deciding how to vote, the citizen looks around and makes efforts. It is such collective efforts that keeps civil servants less dishonest than in other countries. Non-voters expect everything to be nice and good for them to take advantage. Voters realize that conditions are good because we all paid a price, and it takes upkeep to keep conditions good.

    Yes. Citizenship requires accepting the culture, following the laws, and promoting the positive ideals of society and working to change the flaws.

  • Unfortunately from a legal standpoint, being a citizen requires virtually nothing. Hobos can be citizens. There are some illegal aliens that are better people than citizens.

    Being a good citizen, however, requires not being apathetic or ignorant. One must know what is going on and contribute to the general welfare to be a good citizen. By "welfare" I do not mean the public dole.

    Citizenship REQUIRES nine months gestation - that's it. GOOD citizenship requires resposibility.
