What are The Rights of Citizenship?
Stop Look and Listen!
There is a difference between basic human rights and the rights of citizenship. Everyone has a basic human right that is given by Almighty God. This is called the “Right to Life”. It is evidenced by the life blood flowing through the human body, and upon birth the breath of life which is breathed into each person’s lungs. Nobody has the right to end life prematurely.
In the United States of America enshrined in the Constitution (the Rule of Law) are what we have termed the Bill of Rights that are guaranteed to every citizen in the Amendments and we commonly refer to them as “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” where citizens enjoy the right to bear arms, to vote and a host of other benefits afforded all U.S. citizens. These are some of the reasons that draw people to our great nation.
So what are the rights of immigrants coming into the United States? They enjoy basic human rights, and must live peaceably and obey the laws of the land. Many are afforded the opportunity to apply for citizenship where they are then covered by the Bill of Rights. That’s it! Failure to comply with U.S. laws can result in fines and imprisonment or deportation and expulsion.
A direct result of the miseducation of the youth of our nation, as well as the ignorance of our citizens when it comes to knowing federal and state laws allow for the rise in misinformation and false narratives being pass on the internet and by the main stream media outlets nationwide this leads to today’s political climate which stems from a prolonged attack on the Constitution. Attacks to weaken our resolve for continued self-government and systematically attempting to remove the very rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.
The United States of America is not a Democracy as some have eluded to, but as a Republic, to be more precise a “Constitutional-Republic” in which everyone is created equal by the Creator God. It is not wrong for our governmental leaders to look out for and protect the Constitution and the people of the United States while not succumbing to the pressures of public opinion which cries otherwise.
Our government is one “By the people and For the people”, not “To the people” and when the government becomes unresponsive to the people, they have the “Right” to petition for a governmental change.

You may find this hard to believe, but everyone does not have the right to enter the boundaries of the United States. Just because someone wants to come here, they are not allowed to just come on in. They are afforded the opportunity to petition for entry, whether it is for clemency, employment, and residency or as a tourist. There are well established procedures that have worked quite well since our nation was established over 200 years ago. Even though the procedures have been changed and updated over the years, they are still effective when followed.
Currently those wishing to immigrate into this country should start with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate and fill out the necessary application paperwork and clearly spelling out why they want to come to the United States.
Many people falsely reference coming to the United States as “Coming to America”, but America in the technical sense covers the South, Central and North American continents. American citizens are not necessarily citizens of the United States, yet citizens of the United States are indeed citizens of America.
The United States of America is a nation of laws that are based upon biblical principles. Obedience of those laws is the essence of a healthy society. Disobedience leads to anarchy and the crumbling of an unhealthy society.
The foundation of our society has been built upon the backs of our citizens. It is protected by our first responders and the men and women of our nation’s military, who pledge their very lives for its defense. I urge you to consider where you are, where you live, work and play. Our strengths and weaknesses as a nation are only as strong or weak as our people, our citizens.
Stop letting the ultimate right or ultimate left define you. To paraphrase the words of former President Barack Obama, “There is not an African-American America, not a White America, not a Hispanic-American America, not an Asian-America. There is only the United States of America.” – I am the Real Truckmaster!
