    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I got a 90%; made 2 dumb mistakes. But now I'm a citizen!!! (And I've printed and laminated the cool certificate so I can prove it when I go to vote next time!)

    But like my mom used to say: "That and 50 cents will get you a ride on the subway." (Now it costs $2.50 to ride the subway. $2.50!! And that's not including the snorkel and mask.) I wonder if they'd give me a discount if I show my citizenship certificate?

    What's scarier is the fact that naturalized citizens know more about our government than most high school graduates.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    IMHO, the test does not do a good job of getting at what it *means* to be an American (and this, of course, is NOT universal)... but I would argue that those seeking citizenship know what being American means more than many of those born in this great country.

    In a word, it means FREEDOM... It means individual rights to speech, bear arms, religion... and most importantly the right to disagree with each other and with government.
    We must not let any of these freedoms be taken from us.
    That reminds me of a favorite of Yakov Smirnoff quote “In Russia we had free speech difference is in America you are still free next day”.

    I am disappointed in my score. I majored in U.S. History and taught Government for 6 years *sigh*

    When I did it it was about $400, but it rose to $600 shortly after. It may be different now.

    There's all manner of filing fees and additional costs before taking the test though, with getting a permanent resident card (and renewing it), work permit and other miscellaneous forms. I'd say it costs a good couple of grand by the time it's all over with.
