Numbers...

from V-Dare,


It’s the year 2010, so it’s census time again. Have you filled out your census form? I have, and according to the census website, 72% of U.S. residents (not all legal, by the way) have done so.

The constitutional basis for the U.S: census is found in the U.S. Constitution, Article 1, Section 2. In that section it is related to the calculation of "Representatives and direct taxes".

The first national census under the constitution was the census of 1790. My great-great-great-great-great grandfather Jacob Wall was counted in that census. What if my ancestor could travel through time 220 years and see today’s census, what would he think of it? What do we think of it?

Whereas the original census existed for purposes of taxation and representation, the taxation part has been superseded by the 16th Amendment and now a whole slew of other purposes have been added on to the decennial census.

Now it’s not enough to just carry out the census. As VDARE.COM's Brenda Walker has pointed out, the Census Bureau is spending $133 million on "marketing and outreach".

Today’s census has become a tool for the bloated and indebted Federal Government Leviathan to dole out billions of dollars. It’s also a tool for the dispossession of America’s historic white, English-speaking majority.

Check out the Census website to see what I mean.

To begin with, if you don’t speak English, don’t worry. You can obtain information (in video and audio) on the census in all sorts of languages, including Albanian, Arabic, Gujarati, Cambodian and Turkish.

Here’s what it says in the section of the website entitled

How it [the Census] Affects the Nation :

"Census information affects the numbers of seats your state occupies in the U.S. House of Representatives. [That’s the only constitutional purpose of the census. Here’s the rest…]"

"And people from many walks of life use census data to advocate for causes, rescue disaster victims, prevent diseases, research markets, locate pools of skilled workers and more."

"When you do the math, it's easy to see what an accurate count of residents can do for your community. Better infrastructure. More services. A brighter tomorrow for everyone. In fact, the information the census collects helps to determine how more than $400 billion dollars of federal funding each year is spent on infrastructure and services like: Hospitals, Job training centers, Schools, Senior centers, Bridges, tunnels and other-public works projects, Emergency services."

The Census form further justifies itself by explaining to the user why the various nosy questions are important. Let’s look at some of these explanations in detail:
