Patriotism is loyalty and fealty to the United States, and it begins with know the US history and foundational principles. Patriotism based on emotion alone will not sustain faith in country or patriotic action under difficult conditions.
Opposing the citizenship test just because it is not the perfect method to improve citizenship is stupid and infantile. Requiring the test is a great first step that ensure the students have the basic information about their government and history. Passing it should not be a problem if the teachers are doing a good job.

Obama’s Shattered Presidency

Obama's presidency is even worse than that of President Carter. Carter was a bumbling Mr. Magoo that left disaster in his wake, but Obama broke the system on purpose and then bragged about it.

Obama has not deported more illegal aliens than any administration in history: he simply changed the counting rules to make it seem that way while using executive orders to prevent deportations. President Obama has deliberately refused to do his constitutional duty to protect all US citizens by securing the border. The best way to stop the influx is to send these children home, in a very public fashion. We owe it to the other children that will die or suffer while trying to get to the US.
