Should you remain or have the right to become an American Citizen? Take this test:

I got 29/30 but I have to admit some were lucky (though educated) guesses.

I failed. I only got 21.

Good thing I'm not American or that might be embarrassing.

you know, if you only take a half semester of Civics, you aren't going to remember enough for a test of this sort, some 9 years later.

I need to brush up on my US history / civics.

senate and congress terms got me and the constitution amendments!

interesting I did not know about the alcohol age amendment, makes sence.

Thanks great post !

28/30... i failed the eisenhower question fair and square and a screen resolution problem caused me to miss the "where it is illegal" part of the liquor importing question.

The multiple choice saved my butt twice though; they weren't guesses, i just wouldn't have come up with them if i were staring at a blank line.

hey, I know, let's give this test to our servicemen and women, if they pass, they can retain their right to fight for our country.....

I bet if a similar test adapted to the time was given to those who fought in the american revoulution, they wouldn't have passed either.

seems to me to be just another ploy to justify the idea that half the american population is unamerican and deserves to have less rights than others.

now all the main actors starring in the guiding light...
if you can't do that, then you don't deserve the priviledge of telling me your opinion of the latest movie you watched....

I got 14. That's awful.

But I'm not a US citizen so that's ok.

They send you to a class in your town to learn all this, so when you go take the test, you know all the answers. BTW, as i recalled the couple of times my parents dragged me along with them when i was little, they always start the class with The Pledge of Allegiance" and at the end of the class they sang "God Bless America".
I thought that was a nice touch.

It's not that hard a test, but a lot of it are just odd questions. Take for example the number of assassinated presidents. Most people only can think of JKF and Big A Lincoln, because the other two never get spoken of in the media.

Give a week of classes if not two on these topics, they'd easily pass.

weeelll after taking that...I now know i need to polish up on my Civis and US history...

I got 20. That's actually kinda tough without doing a little homework. The ratified amendment, for one. I had no clue. Thought it was going to be something along the lines of African Americans voting. Definately a little challenging unless you get back to the books. Good find.

I got a score of 22 not bad for someone who isnt an American.
Cheers xpert11.

22/30. i goofed around so much in my civics courses that i'm surprised i did that well without any study. give me a week and i could get at least 29.

I got 26 correct. Not bad but should have been better. AI have to admit that some were guesses. Great post!

EDIT: Spelling

How humiliating is this? I didn't pass. This is truely embarrassing. Absolutely no excuses for this, 24/30 OMG.

Needless to say, little ole Seagull is gonna spend some quality time on line with some civics and history of the US type stuff.
