    Let's test this liberal/conservative theory

    Interesting civics quiz. Also interesting that ISU was one of those groups tested. Go to the bottom left and click on civics exam. 60 questions. Harvard students scored highest at around 69%. I think ISU students scored around 53%. I got 50 out of 60 for 83%. (conservative by the way) Kind of tough, but scary that college students don't score higher! Post your score and political persuasion, and be honest!

    Re: Let's test this liberal/conservative theory

    It....is.....pu..tting...me to......zzzzzzzzzz. I dont remember much of that stuff at all. I dont think education failed me. I just dont care. I tend to get curious about things from time to time and I have no problem looking that stuff up. But if it doesnt stick in my brain, oh well. I think history and politics are some of those subjects that if you dont use it you lose it.

    98.3% and liberal. What is your point? Most of these were pretty basic and I majored in biology.

    So liberals know about the Constitution, they just choose to ignore it? Fascinating

    I think it was testing my ability to stay awake while taking it. Just like Civics classes.



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?

    Ahh ... yes, this question gets right at the heart of the constitution.

    1) Jamestown, Virginia, was first settled by Europeans during which period?

    Uh, there were other questions, you know. Hard to keep liberals on topic. Kinda like a whole group of pot smokers with ADHD.

    38 or 63.3%. had a hard time with economy questions and the first 10 questions. Conservative.

    Must one be classified as liberal or conservative. Is that how your world works? Liberal or Conservative? Republican or Democrat? Believer or Non-Believer? Is your capacity to think beyond dichotomous terms not yet developed?

    But back to the original point ... I had taken the quiz yesterday after seeing the link on a blog I follow. From taking it, I didn't recall it being "about the constitution." Yet you suggested it tested our knowledge of the constitution. Not a good sign when the very first question has nothing to do with the constitution at all.

    47 out of 60, pretty middling 78%. Progressive.

    But to be honest, it was pretty hard to concentrate, what with the haze of marijuana and the orgy raging around me. Plus I just ate a sheet of acid.

    So 78%. I'll take it.
