  1. The questions are a little tricky but require no more thought than which way to vote on a local school bond issue (“…edumacashun important! Skools need mor monies!“)

  3. That test is biased against dead voters.

  4. …low-wage/low-skill workers in from another country will benefit our country by bring down wages which brings down prices…
    Uh-huh. Let’s refigure considering food stamps, Uhbamacare, Section 8 housing subsidy, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) for 11-30 million new Democrats, not to mention emergency rooms and hospitals driven out of business, and prisons releasing more criminals to make room for more offensive felons.
    The lying self-serving bastards in DC think there is a cornucopia of cash from heaven to feed all their foibles and opium pipe dreams.

  9. I seriously doubt that half the people who voted in last year’s presidential election could ace this.

    And, honestly, some of the questions are borderline mental masturbation.

    Just for fun I printed it off and had a few coworkers try it. Three out of five got all the answers correct, or at least what we decided was correct. These are IT folks so they’re not stupid but they are easily bored so they probably didn’t take it all that seriously. I can easily see where some uneducated prospective voter could be tripped up pretty easily.

    Looks like a silly wast of time to me…

  10. That’s clearly a dumb test. The knife is “… who cannot prove a 5th grade education”. Obviously Jim Billy-Bob went through 5th grade, and maybe even passed, the 7th time around, and therefore didn’t have to take the test.

    But Mr Washington, who read “Tom Sawyer” two weeks ago and is now working on “Of Mice and Men”, but never got the chance to go to that little red-neck schoolhouse, would have to.

    I firmly believe in a voter test. The questions would be like

    “What does Candidate A stand for?” (They could even be multiple choice.)

    In those states (like California, which has a full-time legislature, but still makes us vote on 6 or 7 ballot propositions every election) that have ballot measures:

    “What’s the financial effect if this proposition passes? What if it doesn’t?”

    With polling-place computers, tests could be given and graded on the spot. No pass, no vote.

  11. PS: “Cross out the number necessary, when making the number below one million.”

    The correct word is “digit”, not “number”.

    “… below one million” could be “10″ – that’s “below one million”.

  12. The test is colorblind. The grading was racist. When an answer had multiple possible “right” answers (such as draw three circles, one engulfed in the other) the grader could decide that it meant two big circles, one with a smaller inside instead of three concentric circles.

    Please note the lack of an official answer key to go with the test, allowing a racist official to “move the goalposts” as it were to turn a correct answer into a wrong answer and deny the person their right to vote. Still, it makes you wonder why Democrats approved of literacy tests but disapprove of producing picture ID.
