How much do you know about American Civics? Could you pass the exam?
Working for the State of Texas in the area of public health I learned that you can in fact pick up valuable knowledge in online courses -- and get a really good idea of what you need to brush up on periodically. Hence my intrigue with "Our Fading Heritage."
I challenge you all:
take the Civics Test at this site, and then take a look at the results recently. Compare your score to the most recent national averages if you'd like, and come back and discuss your results here.
We can't know where we want to go unless we're clear on where we started,
and where we are now.
No, I didn't score 100%. I did score 93+%.
We need to be familiar with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Not just for lawyerly purposes, but for reasons of citizenship and, in spite of our incoming government as well as our present one, to defend ourselves against the encroachments of tyranny.
Tyranny is at its basest when it promises safety, for safety is the one thing no government can guarantee.
