Day Zero – Civics Test Questions – Rights and Responsibilities

Daily blog: It’s November 30th, and time to look at questions in the Rights and Responsibilities section of The United States of America’s naturalization test, some of which I have commented on in red.

The civics test is an oral test, and the USCIS officer will ask 20 out of the 128 civics test questions. You must answer at least 12 questions correctly to pass the 2020 version of the civics test.

C: Rights and Responsibilities

63. There are four amendments to the U.S. Constitution about who can vote. Describe one of them. 

  • Citizens eighteen (18) and older (can vote).
  • You don’t have to pay (a poll tax) to vote.
  • Any citizen can vote. (Women and men can vote.)
  • A male citizen of any race (can vote).

64. Who can vote in federal elections, run for federal office, and serve on a jury in the United States?

  • Citizens
  • Citizens of the United States
  • U.S. citizens

65. What are three rights of everyone living in the United States? 

  • Freedom of expression
  • Freedom of speech
  • Freedom of assembly
  • Freedom to petition the government
  • Freedom of religion
  • The right to bear arms

All have been under attack in 2020 by socialist who want to destroy the country.

66. What do we show loyalty to when we say the Pledge of Allegiance?* 

  • The United States 
  • The flag

And I am tired of people protesting in American while holding up another country’s flag.

67. Name two promises that new citizens make in the Oath of Allegiance. 

  • Give up loyalty to other countries
  • Defend the (U.S.) Constitution
  • Obey the laws of the United States

  • Help with a campaign
  • Join a civic group
  • Join a community group
  • Give an elected official your opinion (on an issue)

We have all been a little slack when it comes to watching over those who work for us. And we need to start contacting our representatives daily to remind them of their duty to protect the constitution.
