Well the Constitution did allow one truly great president to serve forever, but it wasn't despite the will of the voters.

TFHeadline: True or false: The Constitution allows truly great Presidents to serve forever regardless of what the voters want

FALSE: The Constitution allows truly great Presidents to rule forever regardless of what the voters want. Truly great Presidents do not serve, they rule. (The truly biglyiest very very greatest very Presidents neither serve nor rule -- they do only what the strict letter of the title says -- they Preside over the nation, particularly if they've had a full day of strenuous golfing and tweeting.)

That question also notably left out the English Bill of Rights, the Magna Carta, the Petition of Right, not to mention any of the works of enlightenment thinkers that inspired the sources of inspiration they do list. This test looks like horseshiat I would take a student-teacher intern to task over if they tried bringing it into a 9th grade government classroom, much less a farking actual citizenship test.

The electors vote in ten days, so unless the Superior Court of Fulton County absolutely hauls ass, they can't enjoin shiat.

Interesting. I know four Norwegians living in Virginia; one married my nephew. Nephew's MIL and SIL took the test and were this week sworn in as new citizens. I'm sure they took the old test.

Niece in law and and her daddy have yet to take the test and will likely get the harder one. She's an attorney and he's a senior executive in a company. They are all also serious Trumpers. Like many, they are very excited to be in this country and see a great future here.

I will be amused is if they don't pass the test.

Also fails to mention that the Constitution came to be because the Articles of Confederation created a clusterfark between states.

So it was really the failure of the Articles of Confederation that inspired the Constitution Constitution moreso than the document itself.

I think I would probably get deported if I answered the question like that though.

Fuq'Trump. Everything he touch's not only dies, but in its afterlife, poisons so much that the people are hard pressed to wage a dire war of eradication to snuff out their delusional propaganda mercilessly.

You're an optimist.

FTA: 14. Many documents influenced the U.S. Constitution. Name one.
• Iroquois Great Law of Peace


:D for real? Nice. I wish that more lawyers would reply to Originalist arguments by citing the Iroquois Great Law of Peace. (I've read a translation of it, and a translation of core oral tradition stories, basicallty various major examples of the jurisprudence for interpreting parts of the Great Law). It is no more cringeworthy than all the other legal arguments from before 1750ish, but it is also siginificantly better at modern (after 1750ish) principles for pointing out the consequences of disagreeing to the point of obstruction. If the IGLP is considered in the same list as the Federalist Papers then obstructionism will be easy to sweep away because obstructionism causes plague, war, famine, migrants are lost and become homeless, etc etc etc. Those principles seem, you know, very relevant these days.

I mean, I've also read texts from the Ojibwe perspective that point out from their point of view, the Mohawk (1 of the 6 Irogquois nations), are refugees who ended up in Ojibwe territory when a white settler plague prevented them from returning home. But even that argument sounds really, really salient in Covid times. Legal pluralism and refugee status during a pandemic? Yes, please, we need that.

Like, if that's the list of contitutional texts, America, do it. Dooooo iiiittttt.

Not to mention, British common law.

And for people so obsessed with the 10th Amendment, the question on what rights Americans have is laughable in its brevity of specified answers. But that's probably a result of the states rights advocates caring less about individual rights than the powers of state and local governments to restrict rights. After all. They rarely talk about the importance of the 9th amendment. Certainly not with the same fervor.

Not that that's unusual or anything.....

Kind of interesting from an Overton window viewpoint, though, innit?

Next GOP president will be worse than Trump, and we'll be longing for the relatively sane days of Trump.

During training for my job we had to memorize hundreds of historical Canadian facts/events.

We would be challenged as a group and if we failed we would not advance in training.  The questions and some answers were skewed to the positive.

They left out stuff like this:

Because of the comma, i would have answered "sdrawfor".

It didn't matter what answer you gave, though. The person grading your test could claim that any of those were wrong or right, and you had no recourse.

Stupid uneducated white man writes "drowfor"? Close enough!

Intelligent self-educated black man writes "sdrawfor"? Sorry, you were supposed to write "backwards"!

It's actually a good question. Who determines if a person is eligible or ineligible under the 22nd Amendment, and who enforces it? Is it a matter for the states who determine ballot access? Or does the Supreme Court declare eligibility or ineligibility, and if so, when, and how does this sit with their provision of no prior review? Or is it a political question for the Electoral College who, as is necessary as a political question, may be free to ignore the provision with no further judicial review? Or is it a question to be enforced by Congress ultimately through the impeachment power?
