Citizens of the U.S. can participate in their government. This

process insures that power will always remain where it belongs -

with the people.

The most important right citizens have is the right to vote. By

voting, the people have a voice in the government. The people

decide who will represent them in the government. Before voting in

an election, each citizen should be well informed about the issues

and candidates.

The government may call upon citizens to serve on a jury. The

members of the jury need to decide the case in as fair a way as

they can.

Every person is expected to obey the laws of the community,

state and country in which he or she lives. All Americans are

expected to respect the rights of others. All persons living in the

U.S. are expected to pay the income taxes and other taxes honestly

and on time.
