    For a native born citizen, #19 ( which form to use) could be confusing.......
    They ought to give that to high school seniors to see what kind of response we'd get....
    On second thought that might be too scary an idea...

    I got 80% correct...

    15 threw me off...


    I answered 0... I know there are ( CORRECT ANSWER HERE ) people that work there, but I would hardly call them representative of anything other than themselves, and their bank account ;)

    100%.......!!!!!




    JEAH!You answered 100% of questions correctly. Here's your rating:

    0-20%: Maybe you're still thinking too much about the Old Country.

    25-40%: Mmmm. Do you really want to be a citizen? This kind of performance isn't going to impress those nice immigration folks.

    45-60%: Not too bad, but you really need to break out the civics books again -- word is, the INS is looking for an 80 percent score.

    65-80%: Hey, you may make a good citizen yet! Look at your wrong answers and a little revision should do the trick.

    85-100%: Welcome to the United States! (And, truth be told, you know more about this great land than most Americans.)

    100% oh yeah!

    Good to know I pass, though the voting rights amendment took me a minute. Also the Supreme Court justice question is a little confusing, since the President appoints them but they have to be approved by the Senate.

    What % of US citizens do we think could get all of these questions? My guess would be 25% or less.

    100% wut wut!

    Number 14 is ambiguous. Does "select" mean appoint or approve?

    I'm going to guess that the conservatives get #18 wrong.

    My parents became citizens on 2004 and they took a similar test though the questions were a little different and some of them were very arguable. There was a question about the relationship between the pilgrims and the Native Americans that the answer they said was right was just flat out wrong/opinion.

    I would love to see Palin and Biden's answers. How good would that be to have them both fill out this before the debate?

    This has been a long standing joke I have known for a while now through my work. New citizens actually take pride in knowing that in many cases they know more than the Average American does about America.

    I got a 90 but 'im OLD. I didn't know the naturalized citizen question, plus I think #20 I put life liberty and the pursuit of happiness....Wrong.

    I bet Biden would do well on this Palin, meh.
    I took the test to be a British citizen and did almost as well. I scored high enough to be on the city council of something like that.

    Sure I do. It's takes sneaking across the border, and dropping an achor baby onto Joe Taxpayer's lap. :D

    I got that one and number 8 wrong. I honestly thought that 18 was a trick question, because i was almost certain that Bush some how slipped the change into the Patriot Act. [​IMG]
