The 2010 census is ramping up, and it is being done in high fashion only the current administration could. The Obama administration will no doubt go down in the history books as the administration of spending. To their adding debt, we can now add the sum of $340 million dollars that is being spent on the 2010 census.
However, the flip side of the spending is in its intentions. The purpose of the census is to get a reasonably accurate account of the population. The intention of this years census is to inflate the numbers to give an “upper-hand” to certain states and demographics. It’s the demographics that ultimately give the upper-hand to those states in question.
States like California, Arizona and Texas (along with many other states) that have an overwelming population of illegal immigrants would gain more political power over smaller states. How could this be? Take a look at the 10 questions being asked on this 2010 census form:
- How many people were living or staying in this house, apartment, or mobile home on April 1, 2010?
- Were there any additional people staying here April 1, 2010 that you did not include in Question 1?
- [How] Is this house, apartment, or mobile home – [owned, rented, or occupied]?
- What is your telephone number?
- [List the names of the persons living here.]
- What is Person 1’s sex?
- What is Person 1’s age and Person 1’s date of birth?
- Is Person 1 of Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin?
- What is Person 1’s race?
- Does Person 1 sometimes live or stay somewhere else?
Most interesting about this new and improved shortened form, is that it clearly asks more than once of a person’s origin/race. The one question you WILL NOT see on a census form is about the legal status of the respondent of their Social Security number.
How could this help the current administration? This would help push the amnesty agenda for those here illegaly.
