I'll admit raggsy that sometimes I inject my own perspective on things.
For instance, in a subject as complex as politics, I wouldn't shoot my mouth off for fear of looking like an utter fool. I'll put my 2 cents in, but with the disclaimer I'm not an authority, or the best judge of things.
The election before this one bored me, and I didn't read much on those threads. I was so energized by Obama, I read a lot more, and contributed a little, when I felt strongly I had evidence to back myself up.
Since I hadn't paid attention to the ususal suspects on these threads, I've been surprised by the ignorance thrown about, touted as truth.
In my mind, rightly or not, I do associate a knowledge of civics with being better informed about politics. I was surprised and pleased at my score, especially knowing there where 2 times when I was going to pick the right answer, but another one sounded more "convincing", silly me.
biased or not, it was a quick 5-10 minute quiz, and I just saw it as something to do, no mor, no less.
My only question is, don't these "gasbags" get embarrassed by the stuff they say?
I would be.
