This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

Know Enough to Vote?

Now the Pew Center has published results of a recent survey of public knowledge. Their survey consisted of ten multiple choice questions propounded to a random sample of 1000 Americans. Their quiz was about 1/3 as long as ISI's and their sample was less than half as large. My perfect score put me in the 93rd percentile; the top 7%.

Pew's average was 35% compared to ISI's 49, probably reflecting an easier quiz because of fewer and easier questions.
In their survey, men scored 8% higher than women whereas the gender differential in ISI's quiz was 7%. Pew found a 2.6% gain among college graduates, whereas ISI found a 13% gain.

No matter how you slice the data, it is obvious that the body politic is woefully ignorant about politics & economics. Ignorance makes them too easily deceived by demagogues. Take the quizzes; if your score is below 60%, then either start studying or burn your voter registration card.
