    Neil Young wants US citizenship but has hit a snag trying to obtain it although he has lived in this country for decades, owns property here, and has a family here all citizens. US officials say no to his citizenship because he admitted smoking marijuana on his recent application for admission.

    I think that's weak.

    If he were to pass the citizenship test, he knows more about our nation than the average American .

    I don't care about that. Weinstein contributed to our ecomomy.

    I just think that pot use isn't a good enough reason to deny him a shot at US citizenship. I care more to hear his promise to live under and support our Constitution.

    Good point. While whom Young favors in the upcoming election shouldn't have anything to do with granting his citizenship, for pete sake, he does support liberal Democrats and Democrats are almost synonymous with opposing the Constitution.

    In my opinion, Democrats are outlaws already.

    You think simply because he doesn't support Trump or because he favors the constitution they're doing this?

    Nothing to do with citizenship, but Democrats also have developed a terrible habit of weaponizing everything.

    Young is said to want to become a citizen before the next election so he can vote for a democrat and against Trump. Well, so that would make about 250 votes altogether for the democrat candidate. I don't know why Young finds that so motivating, but there it is.

    He couldn't have given up smoking for a year, and that way he wouldn't have had to lie on the citizenship application?

    Or he can't stop smoking for that long because he's addicted.

    Why would anyone want to permanently enter Canada?

    90% of Canadians live within 50 miles of the US border. That should give you a good hint of where they would prefer to be.

    Most of Canada is uninhabitable.
