Reader's View: Make politicians pass a constitution test

Those running for state or federal offices need a 90% or better score to hold office — especially when running to be president of the United States of America.

Anyone who takes an oath to uphold the U.S. or a state constitution needs to be required to pass a test on their understanding of the constitution. Those running for state or federal offices need a 90% or better score to hold office — especially when running to be president of the United States of America.

Too many swear to uphold the constitution, only for us to find out later they were lying!

With rare exceptions, the News Tribune does not publish poetry; letters that are anonymous, libelous or attack other writers; consumer-complaint letters; thank-you letters; or letters generated by political or special-interest campaigns.

We will consider exclusive Local View columns of 600 words or fewer. Authors should possess unique insights, and their commentaries should demonstrate greater knowledge of their subject than letters.
