Note to LIMBOsevic, one-upping your shock at public's ignorance about Constitution: TWITLER is prez!

LIMBOsevic read off the statistics, apparently from the CNN version of the story (wait'll TWITLER finds out he's quoting CNN!1) - then played ain't-it-awful about the decline of American education, ending with, "And these people *VOTE*!1"

Uh, well, TWITLER, with more ignorance about American government than anybody, actually fluked his way into becoming president!1

Also, in an item from a couple of days ago, O'LOOFAH posted that perhaps TWITLER is not informed enough to make decisions: Wha-hoppen, O'LOOFAH, did TWITLER dump you when you lost your venue for kissing up to him?!1

Americans know literally nothing about the Constitution


By Chris CILLIZZA, CNN Editor at Large

.... * More than one in three people (37%) could not name a single right protected by the First Amendment. THE FIRST AMENDMENT.
* Only one in four (26%) can name all three branches of the government. (In 2011, 38% could name all three branches.)
* One in three (33%) can't name any branch of government. None. Not even one.
* A majority (53%) believe the Constitution affords undocumented immigrants no rights. However, everyone in the US is entitled to due process of law and the right to make their case before the courts, at the least. ....

"Protecting the rights guaranteed by the Constitution presupposes that we know what they are," said Annenberg Director Kathleen Hall Jamieson. "The fact that many don't is worrisome."

2. Yip,

Plus, the Deplorables, who claim to be the ONLY American patriots, who “LOVE” the Constitution more than anybody else, are right out there demanding to interfere with all individual life decisions (while claiming “freedom”) and demanding to establish one religion over another, instituting their own form of “sharia law” – THEIR OWN.

3. You just described the 2020 constitutional convention held by the Koch Bros

and friends.

Believe it or not, they actually, really dont want brown people here, gay people, and most women have to go too unless they tow the line.

Now I heard the Koch bros are supporting DACA, which surprised me. Maybe they want brown people because so many of them are just better, smarter than you know who.

4. People that become citizens via naturalization know more about our government than native

Born. I know people don't like this, but I still think they need to take a basic us government test like 10 questions and pass at 70% to be able to vote. IF you care enough about your country you will learn about the basics of government to be a full participant. We would not have a rethug controlled government if people knew civics.
