    I could answer all but one of them off the top of my head.

    I have no idea how many amendments are in the Constitution. I know that I knew it at one time, but that knowledge has been dumped a long time ago.

    Me too, I thought it was 27 but wasn't 100% certain, otherwise they were pretty easy.

    And that's what with most of us not being in school for 15-20 years. They're not hard, and if you can't pass those questions with a little study, you shouldn't be allowed to be a citizen. That's basic shit we all learn in grammar school.

    A few weeks ago I gave a veteran on the corner a donation and he gave me a little flag in return. My son looked at it and said "Dad, there are 50 stars one for each state." I asked him why there were 13 stripes and he thought for a minute and said "because they started with 13 states?"

    He just turned 7, he's in first grade.

    There ya go.

    My daughter in Kindergarten knows who the President is, who the VP is, and she knows why there are 50 stars on the flag. And she's not even 6 yet.

    So it's really basic stuff.

    I couldn't remember the number of amendments and I said the electoral college on who elects the President but then I was wondering if it was supposed to be more complicated in that the people vote and that vote decides the electoral vote not to be confused with the popular vote which is the total of each individual vote. Ugh, I hate tests, I over think them.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    I think it would be harder to pass a drivers exam than the citizenship test

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    yet year after year, this test is given to large samples of US citizens and every year tons fail and I'm not talking about people who haven't been in high school for 15-30 years, I'm talking high school kids, minority adults, white adults, rich people, poor people.

    Every couple years there are articles about the most recent sample results.
    Stay out of it, dude.
