Constitution Quiz!

On Thursday's show, we quiz your knowledge of the U.S. Constitution.  A couple of the questions were TOUGH because I knew it wouldn't be for a grade.

Was there anything in the report that surprised you?  What do you think is the most important part of the U.S. Constitution?

    The thing that surprised me today, was that there was really a part of the constitution that said something about un-normal punishment, which was very anormaluos, in my opinion.

    I think the thing that surprised me the most was that there was really an article in the constitution that talked about cruel &+ unusual punishment. I think it's pretty cool though, how they even thought to add such a thing as that two hundred twenty-two years ago! I guess they took in to consideration all the things that would be happening later on in history.

    I think the most important part of the Constitution is 'We the People' because, hey, we aren't ailens, right? It's so important that the representatives should mark it ever so BIG that to certify that a breed who walks on two legs, have two arms, wear clothes, two genders and have some more intellect than another species called apes is a PEOPLE. Just a joke, really.

    I am glad that we have the Constitution because if we didn't we would not have rights women would not have the right to vote. We wouldn't have freedom We would not have the right to speech, press , equal right, religion, petition, the right of bear and keep arms, quartering of soldiers.

    I think the most important thing about the constituion is the Bill Of Rights, because thats what gives us the rules of how were suppose to live. And there my favorite rules, becuase i memorized them

    I think that the most important part of the Constitution is "We the People" because it is saying that all of us have a say in the constitution. The thing that surprised me was that in an article in the United States Constitution it talked about "cruel and unusual punishments.

    I think that was so rude that Kanye West said that to Taylor Swift because she is way better that Beyonce and she is really talented. Kanye West should apologize. NOWWWW!

    i think the constitution is good other wise we wouldnt have any rights and we would be a crazy country

    September 18, 2009 at 2:33 pm |

    The constitution is good because it says laws about the world so people aren't goin' crazy throughout the planet and the world is in order

    i think texting while driving should be a gainst the law.its just to dangeruos, you could get in a car crash, and you could put yourslef and others in danger.

    I think that everyone should have equal rights!

    The preamble is definetly the most important part. It starts out with, "We the people," and the U.S.A. seems to be turning more away from that then ever before. It seems that most people are more worried about animals and forests then people, and the world is important, but we need to keep everything in perspective and focus on ,"We the people," more than anything.

    i think that the U.S. Constitution has many thing that is important about it. people have different beliefs and people probably think equal rights is the most important. i think the most important one is probably equal rights. everyone wants to be treated the same but everything is really important.

    September 18, 2009 at 8:34 pm |
  22. Colby

    I think the most important parts of the Constitution is having the free speech, the right to press and the right to petition. It would be ridiculous to not have the right to speak your mind or go against something you don't like. God Bless America!

    September 18, 2009 at 9:33 pm |
  23. Jenna

    I think that it is rude for them to do that.I mean,What did the celebrities ever do to you?Also they have a speech all planned out and then someone interrupts them.It is too mean and rude.

  26. Drew

    I am glad we have a constitution if we did not we would not have freedom and have no rights.

    i think obama is going to help a lot of people with this health care plan, but also hurt a lot of people as well.

    Dear Carl Azuz,
    I have a shout out.!
    How many people helped write the Constitution and how long did it take to write?

    September 20, 2009 at 12:57 am |
  29. John

    I do think the questions were very hard and most students in my class did not understand them. I really didn't understand the sections that were mentioned but the Constitution is important and everyone should be treated equelly.

    September 20, 2009 at 10:00 am |
  30. ???

  35. Faustina

    I think that it is important for everyone to have equal rights and to be treated the way they want to be treated.

    September 21, 2009 at 11:41 am |
  36. Yael

    I think is most important is voting. everyone should be aloud to vote whether you are black or white.

    September 21, 2009 at 11:43 am |
  37. Tuong

    I think that the constuition is important because without it people wouldnt be able to go to school with black people, have their right to give speech, or give women the right to vote.

    September 21, 2009 at 11:44 am |
  38. Samantha

    Everyone should have rights and freedom. Everyone should be treated they want to be treated so they don't have to be hurt.

    September 21, 2009 at 11:45 am |

    Thursday's quiz really suprised me. I didn't know half of the stuff. We should all know the consitution more.

    September 21, 2009 at 5:50 pm |
  41. Jayla

    I think that the most important part of the Constitution is that all people are created equal but they can be different in their own way.

    September 21, 2009 at 8:07 pm |
  42. MattheW

    I think the whole thing is most important part of the U.S. Constitution. Because if we did not every one will not be equle any more.

    September 22, 2009 at 10:33 am |
  43. MattheW

    amendments make all of us in the world equle. If we did not have that we will have no laws to follow. I'm glad we made the Constitution in 1776. Thats why i think the Constitution is Important to the world.

  44. colin

    it did not really surprise me but it might have surprised some people.

  45. agnes

    yes i would have let him have the touchdown because its only a football game and that was his dream

    September 23, 2009 at 10:41 am |
  46. Dakota

    I think it was an excellent idea, he should have as many chances to feel good about himself as everyone else.

    September 23, 2009 at 3:05 pm |
  47. Selena

    September 24, 2009 at 10:49 pm |
  49. ally

    I think obomas speech was the best because he the first African American present in the world.

    I think there will be no world if people don't start to recycle and keep on throwing cigarettes their car door.

    September 26, 2009 at 8:40 am |
  50. david

    i thnk the most important amendment is amendment 2, the right to bear arms because you deserve the right to protect yourself from harm and danger.

    September 30, 2009 at 10:41 am |
  51. lexi

    i think every one should have freedom to say wat they think and thier oppinion

    September 30, 2009 at 10:42 am |
  52. Jenna

    Equal rights for sure! But making sure that everyone at least know something more about the constitution then that comment sure would help with school! Evidently I didn't learn anything then equal rights, but I will try harder to learn a bit more about my countries' rights!

    September 30, 2009 at 11:12 am |
  53. Austin>...

    I think the most important part of the constitution is amendement 2, the right to bear arms. I think is the most important patr of the contitution because you can use a gun to protect yourself. If i couldnt protect myself the other amendments wouldnt matter.

    September 30, 2009 at 11:19 am |
  54. Taylor

    I think every one is important in the constitution, but the most important thing in the constitution is amendment 1 and amendment 2 so that your allowed to have freedom of speech and to bear arms.
    so that your allowed to speak what you feel about our world and be allowed to have the right to bear arms to protect yourself from people.

    September 30, 2009 at 11:20 am |
  55. morgan

    i think the most important thing is amendment one.

    September 30, 2009 at 11:21 am |
  56. kayla

    i think the most important part would be amendment one.

    September 30, 2009 at 11:22 am |
  57. Mausam

    I think the most important part of the constitution is that it helps people, gives them rights, and helps make life safer for us.

    September 30, 2009 at 11:24 am |

    September 30, 2009 at 11:25 am |
  59. Trisha

    I think everything the COnstitution says is important. Everything it has effects people in some or the other way. Everything in the consitution are connected. it's like a ladder... take out one screw it all comes falling down.
