Peak Stupidity has emitted its opinion on the matter of the US Feral Government's Decadal Census before in Don't ask me no questions ... and I won't tell you no lies. (Yes, Lynryrd Skynyrd, and boy, spell check is ignorant!) That image above is 1/2 of a letter we go recently informing us of our obligation in this Constitutional process.
As I wrote in that earlier post, yes, I will tell them how many people live in this house. No, I will not fill out any kind of long-form about the number of flush toilets inside (you'd hope they are the flush type), what we use for heating, or whether we like Coke or Pepsi. None of that stuff is mentioned in Article 1, Section 2.
Look at the wording if you can read it in that image. Don't those 1st two of the three reasons for me to want to participate really stand out? I'm supposed to be all in favor of MY State getting its fair share of Uncle Sam's money that he steals off of every paycheck. Uncle Sam has a lot of strings attached to that cash, making my State government big shots nothing but Uncle Sam sackhangers ... well, most of them. The 2nd item says the same thing except as specifically related to "my" "First Responders"* and highway money. The latter is what the Feds LUV LUV LUV to use for blackmail.
It's only the last of 3 that is a Constitutional reason for me to want to participate, and that's assuming my representative and Senators represent and senate(?) my ass. They don't.
On the representation thing, Peak Stupidity has discussed already, in Illegal Aliens' effect on Election '16, the good point brought up by someone else that the States themselves don't mind at all the illegals getting counted, as that ups their share out of Uncle Sam's ... teat's probably not the right place anymore.
I had another thing to say on this 2020 census in particular, but I'll leave that for another post. If the Skynyrd song is in your head, please go back to that post. Thanks for participating here, at least. Uncle Sam can kiss my ass.
