The census, required by the Constitution, has also become one of the many boondoggles devised by the master mind politicians. Imagine hiring two million people to count three hundred plus million people. Using my calculator, I figure that each census taker must count between 150 and 200 people (which also amounts to counting less than one person per day). And remember, most of the count will be gathered by mail. (They might only need to visit one person a week.)
In addition, the government has been spending your money to advertise the census. (Don’t they teach people about the Constitutional requirement in the expensive government schools?) In at least one of the ads they explain that the census is important to help your community get its “fair share” of federal giveaways.
If I follow their convoluted logic, the government spends your money to count you and to convince you to count yourself, so that you can get your share of somebody else’s money. (I know, I can’t write it so it makes sense.)
Also you want to have your nose counted so that the group of oppressors you support can have the power for a while.
Only one legitimate reason exists to let the government count you: it’s required by the Constitution.
