Before I rant, I must gather a little info... Can I walk into your country on foot and spend a few years there... then just simply demand citizenship?

You can, if you go under the Geneva convention. So if you can prove that you are prosicuted by your goverment for race, nationality, religion or political opinion you should be given citizenship, but in reality its a bit differend. more like 5% that you wil get it.

But if you are educated, taking effords to learn the language, have work are a bit social with people around you and "blend in" your chances are quite high.

These rules should go for the intire european union.

Someone correct me if I am wrong.

Since it comes down to making important decisons, I say let the intelligent people have citizenship and the dumb ones...screw them. It's all part of what I'd like to see in most democracies which is letting the important people have more say in matters. Say for every year of education beginning at grade10 your vote "power" increases by 1/6<. I don't want stupid people running a country. Though also I don't think that as a foreigner, your vote "power" should be increased until a little time has passed, major debate needs to be made on that issue, so that we don't have people helping out other countries in a biased manner... I have to go more on this later.

In Canada? No, stylie, we don't want you.

j/k :)

Even though Canada really, really wants (the right) people to immigrate (emmigrate?) here, sneaking in will get you deported.

Yeah, but you'll get kind of wet in the process.

We'll see about the citizenship part when you get here.

Im just pissed off today. I want some trouble so bring it!!! Im really angry at all of our illegals protesting today. I mean really, to come here in the cover of darkness lay low for awhile, and come out and protest for "a path to citizenship???" There is one douchebags, and you shortcut it. What the fuck are you guys smoking!!! I pray we do not relent to this. Build a 20 foot wall and they will find away around it or over it, no need for a wall. We cant stop it, but for the love of God, make your babies, they will have citizenship and their kids and so forth. Have some sense of culpability, some pride and some consequences to your actions!!! You chose to enter here illegaly now accept the consequenses, just get your DNA here make some US citizens and die as we all do, accept your menial jobs cause they have to be better then where you came from, and STFU!!!!!!!!!! /rant

I have no idea realy, but if it'd be up to me, sure, come in, maybe you'll be lucky and nobody will notice.=D Following common sense though, I think not.

However questionable ethics persist within the educated people, hence, these individuals are more capable of implementing sophisticated undertakings for personal benefits, nor are these lawful nor realy moral. XD

My arguments against people saying immigration is bad is who would do our roofing and yard work, and I'm not being racist, every roofer I've seen here is hispanic, I mean obvisouly not all hispanics do that, and not all roofers and what not are hispanic, but a lot of them are. THey do the jobs the middle-upper white class that complains about them don't want to do. I think it's a decent balance, plus without them, my fairly extensive understanding of spanish would go to waste!

Here we both got "good imigrants" and "bad imigrants".

The good is them who work, or at least try to get a job, or an education, whatever it is as mechanic or a arcitect.

the bad however is the slackers...

but of course... not only arabs/iraqies and palestians is slackers and liches on society... Danes does it as well (some, just like the imigrants).

The problem is that most of them grow up with parents that wants them to be something they cant, say a boy that cant read, is forced to study jura by his parents.

well, you get the point and Im tirred.
