Do you think we should test everyone running for public office to see if they understand the constitution?
Might be more informative than a pass fail scenario. There is really three sides to ones view of the constitution. Absolute, fluid in interpretation, and outdated.
It wouldn't be unreasonable to want to understand how a candidate views it.
The constitution is a meaningless piece of paper without those in government believing in it's ideas.
Now what of all those who voted these people into office... Civic isn't even taught, at least not the way it was back in the 60's...not just voter's, but every American needs to know this stuff.
Find a sample of the test our legal immigrent take...could you pass
I think that would be an OUTSTANDING Requirement.
Perhaps it should be a Requirement that they take (and PASS) a complete course on “Civics and Government” ... like a prerequisite to becoming a “Licensed Politician” after all, they’re hoping to be “in the Driver’s Seat” of Our Nation, State or Local Government.
They should have to demonstrate their ability to Operate such a “Vehicle”.
Further ... they all take an Oath to “Uphold and Defend” the Constitution ... which, it seems, they know very little about.
