I'll believe it if they've got the history to back up their position statements. But when they vote FOR something before they vote AGAINST it, well... a person would have to be an idiot to buy anything that candidate says.

That's where an honest media is so critical to our process. We must rely on them to report the discrepancies in a person's voting record and their campaign statements. A media with an agenda, as we have seen, can have devistating results for our country.

Oh, don't forget that he also invented global warming, too. And living in a 'green' house to be environmentally friendly. Rule number one: Never believe anything a politician tells you. ESPECIALLY if he is running for election or re-election.

Too bad so many people forget that rule around election time.

I got all 12, but had to think whether any of the extra 35,000 had been moved out to join the approx 71,000 already there.

I guess watching the Internet and Fox for my current events does pretty well. Especially when you recall the Internet was invented by a politician and Fox is not a news network (right!).

I got ten -- missed the troop number and the US v. Europe health care comparison. I admit that if I'd had to come up with a couple of the others rather than have them as multiple choice, I probably couldn't have thought of them on my own.

Those with the low scores are probably voters, too.

THAT is really scary!

I missed the same one. I'm amazed we have that number of troops, especially considering they want 40,000 more.

It's really pathetic to see how many people only had 2 or 3 answers correct!

Ok, I've done this test before. The first time I got 11 correct, this time I got 12. It's interesting. Thanks for posting it.

Respect life.

An attitude of gratitude can wipe away bad thoughts anytime.

Take this quiz and see how you do. I expect everyone on the forum to get a high score.

I missed one. Shame on me.
