Take a twenty question citizenship test

MSNBC.com has 20 questions - I scored 100% but I guessed on the question pertaining to the INS form.

Many of the questions seem to pertain more to history than citizenship. I think it is important that people know that Congress declares war, not the President. However, I wonder whether it is deeply important for good citizenship to know that Patrick Henry said "Give me liberty or give me death."

Here are a few questions I would include:

Which branch of government allocates expenditures? [Legislative]
Which branch of government undertakes expenditures? [Executive]
Which branch of government enforces the law? [Executive]
Which branch of government interprets the law? [Judicial]
Which house of Congress can propose changes to the tax code? [House of Representatives]
Which amendment allows the Federal government to tax individual incomes? [16th amendment]
Which best describes the federalist system? [A system of government in which power is divided between a central government and the government of each state.]

Here's my score:
