2007 Political Awareness Test

This is a quiz to test your political awareness. This is a non-partisan, unbiased test of your knowledge. See if you can guess my political persuasion - I did my best to hide it, but maybe one question could give my leanings away.

Too many Americans are blind to what is going on around them. Are you an idiot or a true patriot? Do you deserve to be deported or executed, or should you be exalted and allowed to vote? Take this test to find out.
