So, why would anyone care if the census numbers were skewed? Consider carefully that if an area were to be tallied much greater than it had in the past, it may push that region past the threshold to get an additional seat in the House of Representatives. Now say, you were reasonably certain this area would elect one party preferentially over the other, you might well have the motive for excluding the “Right-Wing Extremists” from the census process. Without the opposition to keep everyone on the up and up, you would then be able to pad the census in left leaning areas and maybe lighten the count in the more conservative regions. Thus guaranteeing the dominance of the party in power.
There seems to be a systematic shut out of anyone who disagrees with the White House. Bob Unruh with World Net Daily charges that there is a political policy in Washington that transcends federal agencies:
The U.S. Census Bureau, reflecting what apparently is becoming a political position that involves more than one federal agency, has listed “hate groups,” “law enforcement” “and “anti-immigrant groups” among those that would be refused permission to become a partner with the 2010 Census.
Who are included in these hate groups? Of course, those dangerous right-wing extremists, people who support traditional marriage, people who support the right-to-life, and everyone else Janet Napolitano had mentioned in her warning about hate groups.
In the interest of maintaining the iron fisted Democratic control of both the House and Senate, influencing the Census would nearly guarantee the eventual extinction of any conservative voice in Washington. Unless we are willing to let the erosion of our Constitutional rights continue, we must stand up and be counted in the census, in the polls and hopefully be heard in the media. God Bless America!
