This should be a nation-wide requirement.

Missouri is contemplating passing legislation to make passing the citizenship test administered to immigrants mandatory for high school students to graduate.  The students will be required to make a 60%. 

I had no trouble making a 60% at fourteen, and 97% at eighteen, so I see nothing wrong with this.  In fact, I think it's an excellent idea to making this a requirement to vote.  As in: you have to pass this test every election cycle for five cycles in a row before you become permanently enfranchised.

    1. Glad I'm not the only one that thinks this.

  2. And it should definitely be a requirement to even be eligible to run for public office.

  3. I'd amend it to "the person has to earn an 85% or better to run for office."

    1. I don't think any of our current politicritters could do that, outside of perhaps Rand Paul.
