Check out this U.S. citizenship test and see if you'd make the cut. Post your scores so everyone can judge you equally, as intended by our founding fathers.

Keep in mind, the actual test doesn't offer multiple choice and can be trickier. If you'd like to see how you'd do against the real thing, test yourself on these.

I feel stupid for forgetting the term lengths for senators.

Doesn't seem to work. Anyway, I got 95%, missed the question on Senatorial term lengths.

Really? I never learned any of that in high school. It's stuff I remember from elementary school.

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

lol, I actually barely got 50% in the UK test. It was hard as hell. But the difference is that the actual test IS multiple choice in the UK, whereas the US one isn't. So, you'd expect the UK test to have harder questions I guess. I'm pretty sure many Brits wouldn't know most of those questions.

I missed the question on the number of amendments. That's embarrassing since I've missed that before.

I took the U.K. citizenship test, and thanks to guessing scored 10/24. The U.K. test seemed to have many more questions about present affairs and life in the U.K. For example, one question concerned attaching a resume to a job application. Another asked who pays for school uniforms. The U.S. test seemed more about the principles of government.

I read that if you want to become a citizen of Japan, a government inspector will go to your house and see what kind of food you have in the fridge. Presumably there should be miso and tofu and not pizza and burritos. They demand cultural uniformity.

I think 99% of Japan's population is Japanese, so I could see that happening. I think that cultural uniformity is going to come back to bite them in the buttocks one day though.

For the 'not an original colony' I guessed between New Hampshire and Vermont.

Yeah, the UK test seemed way more practical and current than the US test - the US test seemed more historical and abstract. That probably does reflect different cultural identities.

I scored 15/24 on the UK Citizenship Test. For certain questions I just thought, "What would a nanny state do?"

It could also be that the UK doesn't really have a constitution, and their government evolves to suit public opinion and global conditions. For example; people used to think that power presided with a monarch, so the King was the executive, now people think power resides with the people, so an elected Prime Minister is the executive.

Actually, conservatives tolerate cultural departures much more than liberals. Conservatives only insist that a citizen love freedom. Liberals demand absolute adherence to a long and very detailed cultural agenda. They demand complete uniformity of thought.

When I was in high school there were only 23 amendments to the U.S. Constitution. I've stuck with that ever since.

If conservatives love freedom so much then why are they against prostitution and drugs?

If you are referring to the Republican party, they are not conservatives. The Republican party is run by RINOs these days.
