Do You Have What It Takes to Become a U.S. Citizen?

The following is a quiz given to those seeking to become naturalized citizens in the United States. (Click here to take it yourself and have it scored.)

When I first saw this, I couldn't help but wonder what might go through the minds of publik skool-edumakated Americans who read it (or, more likely, have someone read it to them)...

1. How many stripes are there on the U.S. flag?
    _ 10
    _ 13
    _ 50
    _ 51

    I'm not sure. The people I see on the news usually burn it before I can count them.
2. Who is the chief justice of the Supreme Court today?
    _ George W. Bush
    _ Alberto Gonzales
    _ Thomas Jefferson
    _ John G. Roberts Jr.

    Is that like a king or something?
3. In what year was the Constitution written?
    _ 1776
    _ 1787
    _ 1876
    _ 1812

    This country has a Constitution?
4. Which of these is guaranteed by the First Amendment?
    _ Freedom of the press
    _ Right to bear arms
    _ Right to happiness
    _ Right to trial by jury

    I have never heard of those before. By the way, I think "bear" should be spelled B-A-R-E. Must be a typo.
5. How many Supreme Court justices are there?
    _ 3
    _ 9
    _ 10
    _ 13

    Well, I think the Justice League of America originally had seven members...
6. What are the first 10 amendments to the Constitution called?
    _ The Preamble
    _ The Bill of Rights
    _ First Ten Amendments
    _ Lewis "Scooter" Libby

    Ha, ha, ha! "Scooter"!
7. When was the Declaration of Independence adopted?
    _ July 4, 1776
    _ July 4, 1787
    _ July 4, 1812
    _ July 4, 1876

    Let's see. July 4 is called Independence Day. So, what year were fireworks invented?
8. Which of the following amendments to the Constitution does NOT address or guarantee voting rights?
    _ 19th Amendment
    _ 24th Amendment
    _ 15th Amendment
    _ 7th Amendment

    I don't know. Whenever I vote, I just check off the names I hear most often on the news.
9. What are the 13 original states?
    _ Connecticut, New Hampshire, New York, New Zealand, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Rhode Island, Maryland
    _ Connecticut, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Rhode Island, Maryland
    _ Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Rhode Island, Maryland
    _ Connecticut, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Rhode Island, Maryland, Washington, D.C.

    I thought there were 50 states.
10. What do the stripes on the U.S. flag mean?
    _ The Cabinet
    _ One for each state in the Union
    _ They represent the 13 original states
    _ One for each article of the Constitution

    Isn't it because Uncle Sam's pants have red and white stripes?
11. What is the introduction to the Constitution called?
    _ The Preamble
    _ The Bill of Rights
    _ The Declaration of Independence
    _ The Articles of Confederation

    Again with the Constitution? I never hear any politicians use that word.
12. How many changes or amendments are there to the Constitution?
    _ 9
    _ 10
    _ 13
    _ 27

    Seriously, what the #$@! is this "Constitution" they keep talking about?!
13. Which of the following is NOT one of the constitutional requirements to be eligible to become president?
    _ Must be at least 35 years old by the time he/she will serve
    _ Must have lived in the United States for at least 14 years
    _ Must be a natural-born citizen of the United States
    _ Must have served as a governor

    Huh? The only thing I know about who gets to be president is that you have to be rich, belong to some secret society, or have a dad who was president.
14. Who selects the Supreme Court justices?
    _ The Electoral College
    _ The people
    _ They are appointed by the president
    _ The Senate

    I seem to recall members of the Supreme Court being selected based on how they did on a TV quiz show hosted by Ted Kennedy.
15. How many representatives are there in Congress?
    _ 50
    _ 100
    _ 102
    _ 435

    I knew there were 50 states! I can go back and answer question #1 now.
16. Who said, "Give me liberty or give me death"?
    _ George Washington
    _ Benjamin Franklin
    _ Thomas Jefferson
    _ Patrick Henry

    Never heard of any of them. But what a dumb thing to say.
17. Why did the Pilgrims come to America?
    _ In search of gold
    _ To meet the Indians
    _ For religious freedom
    _ To escape the Revolutionary War

    It wasn't because they were starving?
18. Who has the power to declare war?
    _ Congress
    _ The president
    _ Chief justice of the Supreme Court
    _ Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

    Duh! That's easy. The President.
19. What INS form is used to apply to become a naturalized citizen?
    _ Form N-200 "Petition for Naturalization"
    _ N-400 "Application for Naturalization"
    _ Social Security card
    _ FD-258

    I have a Social Security card, and I know I can't even rent a DVD without that number.
20. Which of these contains three rights or freedoms guaranteed by the Bill of Rights?
    _ Right to life, right to liberty, right to the pursuit of happiness
    _ Freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of religion
    _ Right to protest, right to protection under the law, freedom of religion
    _ Freedom of religion, right to elect representatives, human rights

    What "rights"? Are they sure this question is about America? Must be another typo.
