Let’s change that.
The quiz below considers enough of the Constitution’s radically-better ideas to separate the constitutionalists from the Progressives.
To keep your answers straight and to get your score calculated for you, you can copy this spreadsheet  and enter your answers in your copy.
You take this quiz by considering a number of legislative bills. On each, you choose what you would do if you were in the legislature that would consider the bill.
If your actions would support the Constitution more fully, your score will be much higher:
The distance from 50 to 54 (rounded off) is 3.684 [=50^(1/3)]. The distance from 50 to 64 is that factor squared. The distance from 50 to 100 is that factor cubed.
This scaling reflects that if you only vote for a constitutionalist bill, you are supporting the Constitution only if you’re pressed to do so. If you cosponsor such a bill, you are supporting the Constitution only if others lead. If you sponsor these bills, you are supporting the Constitution fully.
Supporting the Constitution requires that you use your constitutional powers against people in government who defy the Constitution .
Your overall score will be the average of your scores for each bill.
To take the quiz, determine what actions you would take on these bills:
What about executives  and judges ? These people need, above all, to support the Constitution through their actions. In this quiz, people’s intentions to take action are measured and weighted strongly.
What about religious values, families, and civic institutions ? Beyond making life, liberty, and property more secure, all that governments can do to help in these areas is to get out of the way.
The overall score separates constitutionalists from Progressives, and identifies the people in each group who would take more of the crucial actions:
Now imagine which actions would be taken on the bills above by various politicians:
Better yet, just ask these politicians what actions they would take on these bills. If they won’t say, then there’s your answer.
All that’s necessary for evil to win is for good people to do nothing. If people are good for us, they will take the actions we need.
