I do not like hats.
I do not like them on bats.
I would not like them near cats.
I would not like them made out of mats.

Some of the questions were phrased poorly, or the answers a little vague. Still, interesting quiz.

I got one wrong.   Surprise, surprise, it was one of the ones about the superiority of capitalism.  (96.97%)
That's cool how you referenced a case.

Totally!  I'm surprised I got some of the ones at the end right.  They were really weird.

You're in the company of some very powerful people, including our Vice President. :)

81.82%.  Unsurprisingly, the questions I missed were about economics, not government or history.

I got the "govt for the people" and govt spending/taxation parity one wrong. I think that one almost has 2 correct answers.

I thought the same.  Or no correct answers.  I also thought there were no correct answers to these:


13)   Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, and Aquinas would concur that . . .

27)   Free markets typically secure more economic prosperity than government’s centralized planning because . . .

And two nearly correct answers to this:

25)   Free enterprise or capitalism exists insofar as . . . (B & E)
That's cool how you referenced a case.
