Re: 74% of polititians fail Civics test on the Constitution ! TAKE THE QUIZ!
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?
 Quoting: Khim



I know! Trick questions...cause we got the Constitution
questions...the other ones are "close your eyes and pick one"...I said decrease both taxes and spending...obviously
gov doesn't know how to get on a frickin' budget...

Give me more money to spend in my community, and gov
slow down the outgoing flow of spending...ummmm...hello?
Cut, cut, cut.

87.8%. 29 out of 33. I missed the MLK question and FDR question. Go figure, I missed questions about a Maoist and a closet Marxist.

You know what they say. "Know your enemy". The more you know about them the better your chances of stopping their take-over of America. Our schools don't teach this stuff anymore because they don't want our kids to see the evil intent. Revisionist history is changing the perspective of future generations. We need to change it back. That is the only chance our kids have to live as well as we have.
Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

That might make you a target for the justice department. You know Barry and Eric don't need a bunch of people running around trying to enforce the law of the land. Their plan works better when nobody is there to point out the unconstitutional aspects of the regime.

Re: 74% of polititians fail Civics test on the Constitution ! TAKE THE QUIZ!
I object to the following questions and answers:

#27 is questionable - What do they mean by "means and ends?" If they mean using slave labor in China to bring down prices, then that does not secure more economic prosperity in our nation. Property rights and the rule of law have done more to secure economic prosperity in this nation than anything else IN THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF THE WORLD!

#29 is wrong - Citizens pay for EVERYTHING; the government doesn't have any money!

#32 is wrong - The Federal Reserve does not have the authority to buy or sell government securities.

#33 is flat-out wrong - If the government taxes Person A for $100 and spends $100 on Person B, then the net result is zero. But that most certainly does NOT mean that the tax per person = spending per person!


Beware quizzes with manipulative questions and FALSE answers!

About ANY quiz: if you dont know the answer straight out guess what THEY WANT YOU TO SAY (not what you think it should be).

I don't think Barrack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, or 80% of the others in DC could pass this test. I'd pay to see their results!
 Quoting: Epic Beard Guy

You are on to something big here. People should demand to see the scores, so politicians and police know that we consider knowledge of the Constitution to be important. See [link to ConstitutionExam.org]
