Probably been around a long time.

I scored 28 without using any outside assistance and have only taken the test once.

Go for it.

No takers?

I figured that all of the most vocal posters would be taking this to prove they know what they are talking about. Especially those that have had 4 years of political science.

27.

I thought there were 57 states, but that wasn't an option.

I could have easily missed a couple more. I had to guess on several and got some right and some wrong. The amendments were the hardest part of the quiz, IMO.

30/30

Guess that makes me the nerd.

Although the answer to the Pilgrim question is much to simplistic.

It is. Also the head of a city could also include a city manager or a mayor.

Ouch. 24.

But since someone had already mentioned there were ammendment questions I declared I lived in Missouri to keep oldandslow's score pure.

That, and Dorothy's shoes comprise most of what I remember from passing through Abeline on the way to Disneyland with my grandparents when I was 6.

Oh and 30 for 30.

I got 13 correct.Now you need to find someone that cares what you got. Didn't expect much from you and got exactly what I expected. I'm just surprised that you didn't claim 31.

I just didn't want the little fella to feel left out. He has bragged often about 4 years of PS, I"m thinking if he was honest about his score his classes were more BS than anything.

Same here. I marked the right answer, then doubted it (thought, But wasn't he from Kansas?) and changed it. Dammit.

Prob should have gotten 28, but thought the POTUS could declare war. I forgot Congress has to pass that.

It was a difficult test and we haven't covered that material in my classes for a while.

Then why do you feel the need to say so? I expected more of you and got less. Seems to be the run of the gambit eh?

27 is the sweet spot. Less than 27 and you're a dumbshit. More than 27 and you're one of those socially inept eggheads. Good job.

That's right other than those that thought there were 57 states and only chose 50 because it was as close as you could get.
