America: Politically Challenged?

by kmaradiaga1

How well do people in college know their history, politics, and government information? It turns out not very well. I cam across a series of videos where people in various areas of the United States were quizzed on these topics and the amount of incorrect answers will blow your mind. People don’t know the date the U.S. gained independence, which groups fought in the civil war, and how many Supreme Court justices there are! It just worries me because I feel the recently politics has become an issue. I see so many people who get fired up about issues when they’re not even aware how anything political works. Then you have those people that are just completely not interested in learning about it. It could really damage our future. Immigration services even offers a practice citizenship test so people can practice, its interesting to see how well one measures up.
