US Citizenship vs Greencard

Nov 21st 2014
I am toggling whether or not I want to get my US Citizenship because except for cost, I do not see a benefit. I have a green card now.

- I don't vote
- I have no kids
- I don't want to serve on a jury (I travel a lot/work contract)
- I don't plan on doing any criminal acts which may deport me.

Is there a benefit to becoming a US Citizen that I am just not seeing? My interview is coming up and now I'm reconsidering my options.
