Civic Literacy Quiz

Well, I didn't do too badly on it:

You answered 32 out of 33 correctly — 96.97 %
Average score for this quiz during December: 74.9%
Average score: 74.9%

I found the quiz through Daylight Atheism. Take it here and see if you know more than your political representatives do. I should admit that, on a few of them, I was able to determine the answer by knowing what it wasn't and eliminating the ones I was certain were incorrect.

The one question I did miss is below the fold:

7) What was the source of the following phrase: “Government of the people, by the people, for the people”?
A. the speech “I Have a Dream”
B. Declaration of Independence
C. U.S. Constitution
D. Gettysburg Address

I wasn't sure. But once I saw the answer, I thought, "Yeah, that sounds right."

I missed the last one about taxes equaling spending.
