A Patriot Act
Test your simple civics knowledge
Some answers to the questions are patently obvious. Others take some serious thought. But the intent is simple: being a patriot has more to do with knowing the polity of our government, thus what is expected of us as citizens, than it does with political fervor and from which side of the aisle a vote is cast.
Also, listen to a former Speaker of the House and his new contract with America:
Newt Gingrich's NPR commentary on needed GOP reform
And if you haven't seen the movie The Contender, with actor Joan Allen's speech about the chapel of democracy, rent the DVD.
After you've taken the short quiz above (30 questions), post your score. I got 25 out of 30 correct.
P.S. Cost of the Iraq war
