    I agree with this being mandatory in the schools but as well to teach what is corporatism, public and private.
    LAW classifications (Sovereign, Admiralty, Maritime, Roman, etc…)
    Lawfully vs. Legally, and the enforcement of company policy vs. Law.
    This appalling ignorance of the above allows the line of Cain to live off of the backs of producers and others who use the production and commodities of the earth.
    The Psycho / Socio bent of this world even though in the minority of the population, gravitate to positions of power and influence using the people of this planet as their livestock. I have high hopes the Tares of this world will be removed soon as it’s clear man can’t solve man’s problems.

    1. The answer to the test question concerning the significance of July 4, 1776, is technically true but misleading. John Hancock, President of the Second Continental Congress, was the only signer of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. He signed the marked-up copy, which was sent to the printer that evening. Secretary of Congress Charles Thomson signed only as a witness. Virtually all of the 56 signatories signed the parchment copy of the Declaration when it was ready for signature on August 2, 1776. I would reword the exam answer to be “The approval of the Declaration of Independence.”

    2. I would have excluded non-American-born citizens from the survey because naturalized citizens must take the citizens exam for naturalization. This gives them an unfair advantage in taking a test that they had to pass.
