Re: 74% of polititians fail Civics test on the Constitution ! TAKE THE QUIZ!
84.5% which is disappointing but all but one i got wrong were history questions which have very little bearing on the understanding of our system of politics.

Also i didnt read through the thread yet but am I the only on to notice a pretty considerable conservative/libertarian bent on the wording of the questions, most notably towards the end?(i answered how I knew they wanted the questions answered even when I disagreed)

84.7% taking it a 2nd time. I didn't look at what answers I got wrong the first time. I think I rushed through or didn't read some carefully.

Re: 74% of polititians fail Civics test on the Constitution ! TAKE THE QUIZ!
I got 23 out of 33 correct.. a 69.something Percent...

But I believe there is a lot of bullshitting going on in this thread... after reading many many posts on this site, I find it hard to believe many of you are smarter than me.

I noticed the scores on the 3rd page seemed more honest than the first 2 though... Maybe many of us with lower scores didn't report our results, and only the brainy smurfs of the bunch posted theirs, but the site average seems a bit high to me...

To that end, all of you who did well, congrads.. some of the questions were a bit tricky. I also don't see what relevance the actions of Franklin Roosevelt did in the 30s has on the issues of today.

Other than getting duped by the Federal Reserve, screwing all Americans, and permanently selling us all in to indentured servitude... However, I did notice that wasn't on the test.

They might as well have asked What Role the Barbie Doll did for US economic relations in the 50s for all it matters... it has about the same relevance as some o the questions.

Some of these questions/issues mentioned were of minor importance at best. They should not be included with the true core principle questions of what makes the USA...the USA.

The levee question was one example of this.

question #30 is entirely subjective, you cannot spend your way out of debt, so even though the quiz claimed I was wrong, I strongly disagree that increasing spending will pull us out of a recession, cas in point, the present


actually quite a few of those questions were either loaded or subjective to political philosophy

Very little of it had to do with the Constitution.
Jefferson's letter, the puritans, the Lincoln debates, The scopes Monkey trial.. anti-federalists..tax and spend/ capitalism.. what does this have to do with the Constitution.

Misleading....

Blah :(

I missed two.

The one about the economy where I answered that decreasing both taxes and government spending would stimulate economic growth.

They say the right answer is decrease taxes and increase government spending. wtf

And I missed the one about the levees.

They say that the public would benefit from the levees without having to pay for it. Um....where the hell do they think the money for such a project comes from in the first place?
