    How do others score? From here: http://www.americancivicliteracy.org...port_card.html
    In spring 2008, a random sample of Americans took a straightforward test designed to assess each respondent’s “knowledge of America’s founding principles and texts, core history, and enduring institutions”—ISI’s definition of civic literacy. As detailed below, over 70% of Americans failed this basic test of the kind of knowledge required for informed and responsible citizenship. Grade Number Surveyed Percent Surveyed (90 to 100%) 21 0.8% (80 to 89.9%) 66 2.6 (70 to 79.9%) 185 7.4 (60 to 69.9%) 445 17.8 (59.9% and below) 1,791 71.4 Total 2,508 100.0

    Woohoo!! Got an A. 93.something %.

    I missed questions 30 and 33.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Perhaps if you would use a real computer you wouldn't have to apologize for not being able to do so many things on the internet!

    Not bad. This time your topic is only sixteen months old.
