    The dumbass from Hicktown probably feels the same about your vote, which is what makes democracy so much fun and so damn good.

    Considering there are precious few things that Americans come to a consensus agreement upon, I think this idea hasn't any merit going forward. Hell, the two parties can't even agree on who should ask questions during a Presidential debate - how are they going to agree on a testing mechanism?

    Wouldn't be a bad idea, however, if there was some type of educational model or research vehicle for those who wish to enter politics at different levels. The more people know about government, how it functions, who does what, etc. the better off the electorate is and the better informed those interested in serving will be. We have such things here, but not nearly enough, in my view.

    Drug tested, probably. Otherwise, no.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    there is just one qualification that he must have, born in the USA or born as a US citizen.

    Sure, but I get to decide what the correct answers are. Wonder how many Republicans will pass...

The voters did not want some "official" test board to limit their options,,based on reality, they wanted hope and change.
