Pedant's corner. You're insistent on Stephen for Grover Cleveland and Thomas for Woodrow Wilson, but apparently didn't know that Dwight David Eisenhower was christened David Dwight! Cool quiz.

You're right, I didn't know that.
I'm not insisting on anything, I'm just going by what their official names are. Eisenhower's was changed shortly after he was born, according to Wikipedia. Why would I use the name that he had for the first few days of his life?

To come back to this a long time later, of course I didn't intend to sound as rude as I did, and I didn't really mean anything bad by saying "insist". I just got 5/5 points with fewer than half the names on the board! Love this quiz.

I think you must have taken the quiz before and gotten a higher score. The average is 34/44 so I don't think it's possible that 22/44 would get you 5 points.

I have never known a politician keep to policies made months or years before gaining power. As the USA has voted in Trump to be President should we not wait to see how this will play out in reality not what may happen and what should happen or what could have happened. I am not from USA although I lived there for a time, but I am a big believer in Democracy, which means I will give the winner a fair go. Remember the most bitter fruit of all is sour grapes.
delete
Jan 8, 2017
(69)
Sour grapes? That would be if Democrats said that it would be great to have the presidency, and then after Trump stole the election, they then claimed that they never really wanted it or that it wasn't so important to have. I haven't heard anyone say that.

In terms of Trump's policies, it's hard to say what they will be. He is unpredictable. That's part of what makes him scary. And the most habitual shameless unrepentant liar to ever run for office (and, remarkably, this can be said without hyberbole as it is demonstrably factual). However, we can judge his character, his intellect, his knowledge of the world, his temperament, his judgment, etc etc and in all these capacities he is SORELY lacking, unfit for office in EVERY way. The decisions he HAS made thus far, mostly concerning cabinent appointments, and the choices he has made in how to conduct himself on Twitter etc (important in his role as chief diplomat), could hardly be worse.
Also I have no faith in democracy.

Nor is the outcome of the 2016 US presidential election democratic. But that's somewhat beside the point.

People who believe the democracy is good for its own sake I think have trouble separating hype from reality.

Malbaby - I don't think I can agree with you that it is a wise course of action to see how things play out with Trump, when his actions don't show any reason to be hopeful that the results of him in office will be positive in any way for the overwhelming majority of Americans. History is full of folks who probably wished they had stood up before their rights were trampled and their economies trashed. Bullies need to be resisted at every turn, and Trump is nothing if not a bully.

Kalbahamut, after I took the Bill of Rights Quiz today I saw some of your comments in that argument with such prominent and obscure conservative or uninformed users on this site regarding the second amendment. I think you did a great job debating them, and, yes, I would laugh too at that comment where you sarcastically said "reliable sources like InfoWars" (curse those idiots). Great quiz. I really hate it how some Republicans, and just conservatives in general, try to demonize the word "liberal" when it, like most ideologies, is a concept or idea, not bad unless misused. I am proud to say I lean liberal, and read MAD Magazine! (Plus watch Saturday Night Live).

I'm not sure how I feel about the demonization of the word liberal actually. On the one hand, it seems a bit silly. Like you said, it's just a word. And.. I think... in the classic sense, liberalism is an extremely positive thing. Something that even most conservatives could get behind. Classic liberalism is, to me, mostly about personal freedom, civil liberty, representative democracy... very American values.
On the other hand, the term has come to accumulate a lot of baggage. And, these days, if someone groans at someone else identifying as liberal, I sort of get that.

I have strong disagreements with both contemporary liberals and conservatives to be honest. When I talk politics after a while I don't have many friends left. :D But I'm happy you enjoyed the commentary.

aaand.. just to add to what I already said above, I'm actually somewhat ambivalent about gun rights. I don't know what the best thing to do with them is. I'm not personally a fan of guns and it wouldn't bother me to see them all destroyed. On the other hand, as much as liberals try to make the case that there is a perfect correlation between gun ownership and gun deaths, there simply is not. If you look at the data across many different countries and communities it's actually very nebulous and hard to draw any conclusions from. It doesn't support either side clearly. I support facts above ideology. If it really could be proven that guns made people safer, I'd be all in favor of that. But it hasn't been proven. My main issue with gun rights enthusiasts is that they make incredibly weak arguments. Some gun opponents are guilty of this, too, to be fair. and I call out weak arguments on all sides, even from people I agree with. It's no good winning a debate with a bad argument.
