Politics isn’t for everyone. The majority of people out there are more concerned about what’s going on in their day to life than they are with what’s happening in Washington. However, there are some things that every American citizen should at least have a general understanding of.
You should have a general idea of how the government works. A general idea about Constitution. A general idea about the administration that’s in charge. And, you should be able to name at least one Supreme Court justice.
Unfortunately, a remarkable percentage of Americans can’t do that.
From The Daily Wire:
According to a C-SPAN/PBS survey of 1,000 likely voters conducted between August 13-15, a staggering 52% of Americans cannot name a single Supreme Court Justice.
While the number of respondents who couldn’t identify a single member of the Supreme Court is down five percentage points from when the same survey was conducted in 2017, 52% is still unacceptably high.
You don’t have to be a SCOTUS expert but naming one justice shouldn’t be that difficult. It really boils down to a lack of curiosity. People just don’t care enough to even look into it. The Supreme Court is making decisions every year that affect our lives and the direction of the country pretty dramatically. Important to pay attention.
Here’s one name to remember. Brett Kavanaugh.
He appears well on his way to being confirmed.
