Maybe this is why we're threatened with a lying, white-male solipsist as a Supreme?
I wonder how 2 percent more got the "checks and balances" right than could name the branches of government? Oh well...
Civic ignorance certainly isn't confined to Florida. Most people are not engaged with the Alito nomination because they either don't understand what the Supreme Court does or they fear that they'll feel stupid if they try to understand what the nomination means. The one certain thing most folks learn from schooling is to fear humiliation for not knowing the answer.
If enough people are kept ignorant or choose to rest in ignorance, democracy is impossible. Obviously that is in the interests of those who already hold power.
