There are four ways to become a United States citizen (USC): 1) Birth in the US, 2) Birth Abroad, 3) Derivative Citizenship, and Naturalization. Generally, to naturalize, one has to be a green card holder/lawful permanent resident for five years. Exceptions, if your green card was obtained through marriage to a USC, it is three years. If your spouse is a USC, in the US military and stationed abroad, it is much less than five years when one can apply for USC. If your USC spouse is a stationed abroad, and working for a US company that is providing trade, commerce, and other significant benefits to the US, that five year requirement is much reduced. If you are 50 or older and have your green card for more than 20 years, you can take the test in your native language and you are exempt from the reading and writing portion of the test. If you are 55 or older and have your green card for 15 years or more, you can take the test in your native language and you are exempt from the reading and writing portions of the test. If you have a medical condition and a doctor sign off on Form N-648, you may get exempted for taking the entire test. You will still have to show that you are a person of good moral character, you do not have major crimes, and you do not owe local, state, and/or federal taxes.
It is my opinion that each person who is a USC, 18 or older, and you do not have restricted liberties should vote. In Minnesota, one can register to vote and vote on Election Day. In Minnesota, one can register to vote Online, at the DMV, and at various other outlets.

Harry C. Boyte, delves into the idea that Americans feel powerless to address the mounting problems that face this country. In an opening essay, Boyte advises educators to claim and use their sometimes unappreciated power in the face of these problems. He challenges them to lead a movement in the rethinking of education, the meaning of citizenship, the state of the working world in today’s society, and the challenge of addressing public issues. Boyte believes that education is “the anchoring institution of citizenship.” Education, according to Boyte, shapes public identities and career paths of students and influences the methods and structures of many professions. Boyte coordinated an association, called the American Commonwealth Partnership, of several hundred colleges and universities to strengthen higher education as a public good. This book builds on the ideas practiced by the American Commonwealth Partnership.
In the book, Democracy’s Education presidents and public officials portray their roles as public philosophers and architects of wide ranging policy changes. There are accounts from students, faculty, and staff in which they discuss the changing curriculum, student life, and alumni relationships. All of these factors allow current students to create opportunities to develop public action and concern for a commonwealth which they are helping to generate. Students also narrate their findings and experiences of becoming controlling factors of change, and get into their plans for careers packed with public principles.

Stephen P. Tryon “holds a B.S. from West Point and an M.A. in philosophy from Stanford University. He served as a soldier in the United States army for 21 years. At the end of his army career, he served as a legislative fellow for Senator Max Cleland, as well as a legislative assistant to the senior general at army headquarters in the Pentagon.
More recently, Tryon has worked as a Senior VP of Human Resources and International Business at Overstock.com. He has spent four years managing logistics and five years managing human resources and international business. Stephen P. Tryon is the author of Accountability Citizenship.
According to the book description of Accountability Citizenship, it “explains how we can restore accountability in government by accepting our personal accountability for some simple tasks we must do as individual citizens living in the age of information. The book is non-partisan. Readers are asked only to agree on the very basics—that the government of the United States is supposed to represent the people of the United States.
The author makes a compelling case that changes in our information distribution technologies and business models discourage effective political participation by citizens. In the early days of our republic, information distribution was based on newspapers—subscription-based and geographically aligned with the representative structure of Congress. Over the past forty years, deregulation of television and radio along with the information technology revolution have disrupted this alignment. But we can restore accountability through the three steps of accountability citizenship: being appropriately positive, appropriately informed and appropriately engaged.”
