    @Marth and @Leo We changed the wording of Question 4 to make it more clear that this is based on the news report in our Weekly News, where it states what Sanders says his main goal is. Hope that helps!

  4. Josephine Edison says:

    Very useful questions….

  5. Martha Toll says:

    I like the idea, but our kids are brainwashed enough. Although it is important to teach kids about the political process and how our system works, try leaving the political LEANING out. When it comes to politics write to INFORM not PERSUADE.
    Bernie Sanders IS NOT about smaller government.

    Thanks! I enjoyed the quiz. I got 8 out of 10. I am wondering which part of the questions I got wrong.

  15. Leo says:

    Bull! Bernie is not planning to give the government back to the people. No politician does that, especially those who openly call themselves “socialist”. Communists hold on to power like leeches, wouldn’t let go. I came from Cuba recently. I know better.
