Virtually all U.S. citizens have the same rights

What are my rights as a U.S. citizen?

According to U.S. law, you are guaranteed four rights: freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and due process. At the same time, you cannot deprive another of their property, wrongfully detain them, or use force against them. Citizens of other countries, however, are not granted all these rights.

Where can I legally travel to in the U.S.?

The U.S. State Department can help you find a visa office in your area, or other travel agencies can guide you to a location. In July 2016, our sister site Everytown published the results of a study of where passport applications and licenses are processed in America.

When the State Department starts granting visas, that should be the start of the line for American citizens visiting the U.S. After a few hours, this issue can become a problem, however, because line growth tends to slow. If you are held up in line, you may be asked to provide a personal information like your name, birth date, and/or Social Security number.

Since I cannot get any news via the United States of America’s licensed phone number or email address, what information can I ask the State Department if I need it?

Don’t expect the State Department to respond to all questions from citizens. When an investigation is requested, the State Department only sends out written responses, and there is a wide gap between the written responses and the requests made through calls or emails. If you need to know anything, however, you can always take your request to the federal court of public opinion, where individual citizens can make individual complaints.

A Daily Kos petition asking the State Department to allow online petitions from U.S. citizens to be filed with the department received more than 21,000 signatures.

What is the process for filing a complaint?

The federal court of public opinion is based at the federal courthouse in lower Manhattan, New York. You can file a suit for the court here.
