Have you seen job ads for the census yet? Every decade, the U.S. government carries out its constitutional duty to make a complete counting of every person in the United States. It’s a mammoth task that takes thousands of temporary employees who go into the highways and hedges to make sure no one is missed. Without a doubt, the census is a lot of work that costs a lot of taxpayer money. You might wonder why we go to all this trouble just to know how many people live in our nation. In reality, it’s a much bigger deal than than just who lives here. It’s about power and our future. The results of the U.S. Census determines how many Electoral College votes each state gets. It also determines how many representatives each state gets in the House of Reps. On top of all that, census data determines how much money government programs give to each of the different areas in our states.
With so much power and money at stake, it’s no wonder our Census is under attack. Remember, all the data seems to indicate that people are fleeing liberal states like Illinois and California for the greener pastures of more conservative states. When states are run as poorly as Democrats run them, it’s no wonder citizens choose to do some running of their own. These people could easily bring their political power and government dollars with them.
As this year’s census unfolds, we have to be extra vigilant that Democrats don’t try to skew the results. They already got the federal judiciary to force the question about U.S. citizenship off of the census form. Democrats know illegal immigrants prefer the comfort of a liberal sanctuary city that won’t deport them even if they commit a violent crime. Democrats want to make sure these non-citizens are counted on the census as though they were citizens.
President Trump has promised to take other action to determine who is here legally and who isn’t, but this still shows the true motivations of the left. They want to grab political power and cash, even if that means disenfranchising voters that are here legally. The data collected by the U.S. Census is important. We must be vigilant!
