• Are you a true PATRIOT? Anyone can wave a flag or put on a yellow ribbon, but this test measures something that truly matters: your understanding of how American democracy works.

    I'm a political junkie who majored in Politics & Government in school and spent 3 years working in the US Congress. This test is intended to gauge your knowledge of basic and important facts about how our democracy works.

    WARNING: I know that civic education is weak, but my standards are high, and this test is not very forgiving. I welcome your questions and comments. Good luck!
