    Civics 101: Most Americans can't pass this test!


    Consider it a more grown-up verison of "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth-Grader?"

    Frankly, I thinks some of the answers are debatable, but overall, I think any reasonably well-informed citizen ought to be able to ace this - are you up to the challenge?

    I wouldn't consider most of those questions "Civics101" level. Maybe 4-5 of them, at most.

    True, true: the civics they taught me in grade-school was considerably more in-depth, and maybe a third of this is really more current-affairs than civics, strictly speaking, but overall, it should be doab;e, don't you think?

    How'd *you* do, BTW?

    I got 29. Missed the abortion one, the Lincoln one, the specialization one (which is highly debatable) and one more I don't remember.

    Good job, dude!

    Yeah, several of them @ the end are IMO frankly debatable (as opposed to matters of fact) - I missed three of those, myself.

    31 out of 33, 94%. Missed 4, concerning the topic of Lincoln's debates. Missed 33 too. Their answer was D, which is easily shown to be bull****.

    Wow, I just read question 33 and I see how you may have read into that. It should have read:

    33) If taxes equal government spending, then:
    A. government debt is zero
    B. printing money no longer causes inflation
    C. government is not helping anybody
    D. average taxes paid per person equals government spending per person
    E. tax loopholes and special-interest spending are absent

    Even so its still not factoring long term debt, ect.
