The Far Right Is Attempting To Foil The Census

Click on pic for larger image

Some of the Tea Baggers and far right Repugs have been attempting to convince people not to fill out the census. They have made many strange claims, such as it is un-constitutional. This is ridiculous, especially since it plainly states in the U.S. Constitution that the census "...shall be taken every ten years."
These hysterical people fear the census will erode their power in light of a growing non-white population in the United States.
Of course any person who is knowlegeable about politics and government knows the importance of a near as correct as possible census count. It determines the number of elected representatives in state legislatures and in the U.S. House, it influences the distribution of state and federal services and a number of other things.
