I keep telling you…

…you should be listening to me. From Intercollegiate Studies Institute American Civic Literacy Test...
You answered 31 out of 33 correctly — 93.94 %
Not perfect? Perhaps, but consider...
Seventy-one percent of Americans fail the test, with an overall average score of 49%.

Liberals score 49%; conservatives score 48%. Republicans score 52%; Democrats score 45%.

Fewer than half of all Americans can name all three branches of government, a minimal requirement for understanding America’s constitutional system.
I'm not sure if I should be proud of myself or shamed by my countrymen.
