I got 9 out of 10.
I screwedup on the constitution, for some reason I confused it with the Declaration of Independence. Doh!

I "qualify". 9/10. Got question 9 wrong. I know felons lose some of their rights, so I went for that answer.

I qualify. Good thing they did all that Schoolhouse Rock. It's the only reason why I got so many right to begin with! (8/10).

Woot! 10/10. I was a little worried when they asked me for the original 13 states, though.

Hey Mael and Velo, go back to Canada!

*grumble* Crazy hockey fans think they can immigrate just cause they're smart.

LOL! 8/10 - I had no idea who Bill Bell was, and I still do not care. And I forgot that the Sec of Defense does NOT become president if the Pres and Vice-Pres are unable to perform their duties. It is the Speaker of the House of Reps.

The test changes, I got 10/10 this time. The number of votes in the house of Representatives almost got me, lucky guess. Good thing they didn't ask how to spell Representative.

Now that one I know, cause we ripped off the Soviets for Alaska and only paid like a million for it, whereas with Hawaii, we "emancipated" them from the evil rule of their royalty, and that came way later. And we got a vacation spot to boot!

I hear you TRD. My family has been here for 13 generations. My ancestor settled on the Lynches River in present day Lee County, SC, just after the colony was founded.

10/10 here as well. I ain't no American history geek though. I've never even been there.

Must be all the American TV or something.

I'm TELLING you... Schoolhouse Rock will implant all kinds of stuff into your head. If the FBI wanted to brainwash someone, they could simply insert the subliminal thoughts into a Schoolhouse Rock song and force it on you, and you wouldn't even know it.
