Discover that since the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment and the Slaughterhouse Cases, there is a citizen of the United States, who is not a citizen of the several States (united) and a citizen of the several States (united) who is not a citizen of the United States.

See that a citizen of a State, under Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 of the Constitution, is a citizen of the several States (united), and owes allegiance to the several States united; that is, to the United States, as expressed in plural form.

Also, find out that a citizen of a State who is a citizen of the several States (united), is a nationality of the nation of the United States. Thus, there are two nationalities for the nation of the United States; a citizen of the United States, under Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment, and a citizen of the several States (united), under Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 of the Constitution.
