2020. The Census. Conservatives and voter integrity advocates need to keep a keen eye on their own census forms and the census takers hired in their local communities. This piece from Michelle Malkin, although from last April, is the best commentary on potential problems we can find as 2020 Census forms begin to arrive in our mailboxes. Elected Democrats, the media and George Soros are already wallpapering the country with untruths about the Census, namely, that asking a person living in the United States whether he or she is a citizen is “racist.” Unfortunately, they won in the short term. What that means in practice, is that communities with a large number of foreign nationals, legal and illegal, can skew the result of the Census, and in turn, affect the balance of Congress by non-citizens. There is great detail in Michelle’s article, and great quotes that make the importance of clean census results abundantly clear. Read this piece, share it with your friends, and fill out YOUR census form.
