Which means I didn't do anything to get my Canadian citizenship... other than being born there, and I didn't do anything to get my British citizenship... other than to be born to a father who was born in Liverpool... right of descent... amended in the 1980's but not retroactive.

My only "applied for" citizenship was the US. I entered in 1965, lived on a green card until 1978, and lived continually in the US from 1965 to 2004... so I don't think I am 'collector', as it were.

So if UK and USA are at war, who are you supposed to help?
