I deal with people on a daily basis that are employees of Government, education or healtcare agencies. One question I have to ask frequently is what level of government they are with. This comes from them saying they are with "the government." They usualy reply with the name of the agency or with the words "what do you mean?"

I learned what government levels were in eight grade government class. This is just one example fo dozens.

Do you think the people of the United States are as politically intellegent as they once were? If not, why?

Frankly, I do not. It is lack of civics education on the part of our schools. THAT needs to change. What a shame it is to hear someone who is employed by any government agency that does not know anything about civics.
