So looking on MSN I see one of those typical questionnaires and this one struck me funny as in at first I look at it as if the questionnaire was as simple as asking what color the sky was... Well I was wrong in that assumption and now I know why we continually get crappy people voted into office for even decades on end...

Maybe we need a passing score on a civics test to vote....

If there are two per state which I learned in school then there should be 114 now. I specifically remember Obama claiming we had 57 states.

Paying all those congressmen to argue with each other and take bribes....oh sorry, contributions, is kind of crazy. Instead of these rich people, companies, and organizations paying for campaigns, why can't that money be pooled to pay their salaries?

I know, I may be a little frivilous, how would MSM be able to pay bonuses to their people if there were no campaign funds to pay for advertising.

Maybe since our government is partially shut down, as someone earlier said on a thread, we should replace it. Now If everyone were to repeat this on social media, The Democrats would start to compromise with Trump and the shutdown would just go away.

I think I know why now I get deer in the headlight look when I go into a conversation as to why we have 2 senators per state and an Electoral College as part of the republic.

33% for "Your Name Here"

33% for the above question

33% for "Who is buried in Grant's Tomb?

There is/was chat that the Masons™ are behind it. Of course a bunch of 100% would seem kind of 'sketchy'...

Then When One passes they get to wave an American flag made in Bangladesh. Then when they leave the local City Hall, the Democrats™ sign them up to vote and 3 days later they start getting their handouts...

This is why I think there should be a 10 question quiz on every federal ballot, with multiple choice questions pulled at random from the most recent U.S. Naturalization test. For each question answered correctly, the voter gets a +10% to their vote tally.

Answer all questions correctly, you get 1 full vote. Answer 8/10, you get 0.8 of a vote.

Then see how each candidate does with their constituents.

I think you should also be able to take a physical challenge.

Just like Double Dare.



We are almost there, so why not?

When my friend was in the process of becoming a citizen (Nigerian) I got to see the Immigration practice test.
Tough , but I passed

Yes , there should be a test such as the above for a "Voter Eligibility Card"
This should also be a requirement before one can run for any office. Local State or Federal
