Because home is home afterall.
You really know no loyalty to the country you are so nationalistic  ...

I guess I just don't understand how this works.  I didn't think people kept their nationality when making a new country their 'home'.  

So if they are not immigrating to another country, than 'home' is home.  But if they are immigrating...they are making a new 'home'.   You don't have two homes.

I don't know.  I guess I just don't understand at all this concept.

This whole concept is pretty foreign to me.  Forgive me that I don't understand this at all.

When my family came to america, they became american citizens.  That is what everyone does pretty much who immigrates here.  Otherwise you are on some visa and many will marry just to become citizens.

So, I don't understand this concept of immigrating to another country and not gaining citizenship there.

I've just never heard of that before.

When ...

Nah,
I'd totally move to the US for some time maybe, maybe texas or so.
But renouncing my nationality? No.
Switch my passport? Maybe if Switzerland executed their hypothetical annexation plans dusting in the drawers.
Switch it if the Swedes were coming? Not gonna happen, totally arm up then.
And otherwise surrounded by allies.
No, I don't see any incentive worth breaking with this identity.

Ask your native friends if they could imagine themselves as a citizen of any other country.

I think that is key here.  You're talking temporary residency.

In that case, I agree.  You don't give up your nationality.

I guess all I am used to hearing is how many hundreds of thousands of immigrants trying to get US citizenship.  They mean to live here permanently.

In that case, you still don't relinquish your identity.  Being an american citizen does not denote an ethnic identity.  Its not like germany where being 'german' is an ethnicity and cultural identity.  Being 'american' is devoid of this.  That is the exact reason for practices I think you said you hate.  Using hyphens like Italian-American or African-American.  Its the only way to denote your nationality or ethnicity.

Even for native-americans, their identity is not 'american' - it comes from their tribal membership and can further extend to certain language groups that tie some tribes together in a loose kinship.  Anyways, its just different.  We come from totally different types of places.

Has it never occurred to you that the U.S. of A. is virtually THROWING its greencards and natura ...

Has it ever occurred to you to actually read some facts before posting such nonesense?

You look like a fool here.

Pretty outlandish statement to say the US is 'throwing green cards at people'.

Pretty much shows he knows absolutely nothing about the US.
