The Oath of Allegiance that naturalized citizens take upon gaining citizenship has a long and honorable tradition. It was always a source of pride for people to swear their allegiance to their new home and give their pledge to defend it in times of war.
President Obama doesn’t believe that new citizens should have to defend their nation in the event of war. In true liberal fashion, he has no problem with people coming to this country to take advantage of all the freedoms that Americans have fought, bled and died for throughout our history — while they sit on the sidelines.
As of July 21, 2015, thanks to Obama, new Americans can skip having to say the following clauses:
“That I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law.”
“That I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law.”
You can read the complete oath here:
“I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen;
that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;
that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law;
that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.”
One has to ask, what will be the next part of the oath that gets chucked out — “So help me God”?
