Name the three branches of government (USA). Someone said most young Americans can't do it. Well, I'm not in my 20's but I do remember studying that in school. When I tried to recite the branches I could only remember 2 of them.

Bah!


I looked it up and it all came flooding back to me. How could I have forgotten? Oh, well, see if you remember. And you can play if you're not in America.

I'm going to make this a poll.

So, wait for it!!! Dork.

Then again, I was a political science major.

Look, dork (means I really dig you) you didn't wait for the poll! But you had to be the first one didn't you?

your poll's goofed. It isn't called the Congress branch; it's the legislative :tongue

I like how the correct answer was not one of the poll options. Well, congress is legislative, but I'm picky.

Oh gods no! Not the people! Anything but the people.

Because those people will call their people. And you do NOT want to mess with their people.

Okay, but legislative is congress and I left it out so it'll be harder to choose.


I have a method for my madness.

But what about those countries that have a legislative branch but no congress?

SK, that sums it up perfectly.

I have a client that collects those. I see them everywhere. Now that'll live in my head whenever I see them.

I tried to find "legislative, judicial, and executive", but there was no option for it.

Read the other posts below the original post. It's sort of a trick answer.

Your poll is wrong, but I voted for the closest. And I knew it off the top of my head. Booya! ;)

I did it to throw people off a little. They mean the same thing though. In a different sort of way.
