Could you be an American?

As we approach the 4th of July, it’s time to reflect and think about what makes the USA such a great and desirable country to live in. It’s a time for patriotism to shine, a time to celebrate our independence [from Great Britain] as a country, thanks to great men like Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson wrote a “fair” draft, presented it to Congress who made some revisions and on July 2, 1776. It was July 4, 1776 that the document known as the Declaration of Independence was adopted.

If you are not from this country, then chances are you don’t know any of this country’s history, such as the drafting and signing of the Declaration of Independence. Tonight, while driving into work, listening to 98 Rock out of Sacto, Craig “the dogface boy” was talking about a quiz on MSNBC. The test is titled, “Could you pass the U.S. Citizenship test?” Thankfully it is presented in ENGLISH, which ALL immigrants should learn [but don’t have too, unfortunately] in order to be a citizen. The test is similar to any high school civics class, and if you know anything about U.S. history, then you would have no problems passing.

I took the 20 question quiz and passed with a 95%, yeah I missed one question. The questions are selected from a pool of 100 [see the question pool here], which would require any would be citizen to study prior to applying and taking the test. So take the test and let me know, do you belong in the U.S.?
