    Poll: 26% Of U.S. Clueless On Who We Declared Independence From

    WOW!
    This might be a fun question to ask friends and acquaintances this 4th of July weekend. If they ask "who doesn't know that?" You say 26% of Americans. According to the poll the younger you are, the more chance of not knowing.

    Younger and from the South were the worst, according to the poll.

    The worst thing about our lack of knowledge of basic American history? How quick we are as a nation to have opinions about things we don't know anything about.

    I agree. And this is sad that people don't know basic American history. A lot of it has to do with the culture of America's youth today, many simply just don't care to learn or about education. It's a mix of our failing education system and the culture of today's youth that is hurting us.

    I think it has more to do with education, than society today. Raising the horribly low standards would be a start, I took the Georgia High School graduation test in 2008, and during the whole week of testing I finished every test in about 15-20 minutes, tests mind you, which we were alloted 2 hours to finish. And all my grades were pass plus, and honors. My friends all had a similar experience, it's just pathetic.

    I'm not positive it's any worse now than it has ever been. I would be interested in seeing some numbers.

    It totally blows my mind that only 26% of the people polled know we declared our independence of foreign oil. Morons.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    No, 84% know who we declared independence from, and 26% don't.

    Your mind has obviously been poisoned by the so-called MSM. I shall pray for your immortal soul in my church made of oil drums.
