North Dakota students will have to prove they know something about the United States. And I thought all students had to prove this.
In North Dakota legislators are considering a bill that would require high school students to pass a civics test before they graduate. What should be no big deal is suddenly World War III for Leftists.
Last time I checked, knowing about one’s country was part of the curriculum. When you are about to spit these post-pubescent [ ] into the world, is it too much to expect them to know HOW THE WORLD WORKS?
Let’s say you did believe as Gruber does that the populace should remain stupid, then why is there extended training for cops, for example?
Periodically almost any career must perform ongoing training, so why not citizens? Using the logic of the Left, once you get your driver’s license, no more testing needed.
Today, only immigrants obtaining citizenship are required to pass a test about our history and laws. And you know the Left would like to keep it that way. They can’t have a bunch of kids actually knowing about the rule of law, checks and balances in the government, and the Constitution. It is much easier to manipulate people who are ignorant of their rights.
In a 2012 survey of 300 college graduates by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni only 20 percent knew that the “Father of the Constitution” was James Madison and only 38 percent could give the correct length of terms for U.S. House and Senate members.
Instead of complaining about North Dakota students having to pass a civics test, perhaps the ACLU should be fighting for ALL students to have to take the test. This would certainly make their job easier.
Find out how well you’d do on this citizenship test developed by CSMonitor.com.
South Dakota, Arizona, Louisiana, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Utah are all considering adopting the test as well.
The good news: illegals pardoned in a few states will understand how Obama violated the Constitution in allowing them to be here.
