    So we aren't Nazi Germany…yet. The SC gerrymandering decision still deeply hollowed out the very idea of free and fair elections, which we never have had in the US and now probably never will, at least with the modern radical repub party installing themselves against the people's will in both high and low office, as they have been for decades once the demographics turned overwhelmingly against them in the 70's.

    Since when did the census ever have anything to do with voter registration? It's like going to the store to buy milk, because the lawn needs mowing. They really should try harder to tell better lies.

    They knew they were wrong and we all knew it too! I'm sure Trump will find a way to flip this around to make himself look like a hero…just like every other sketchy thing he does, then gets shamed into stopping.
    That's Trump's MO.
    1. Start a fire.
    2. Say the Dems started it, even though we have video of him starting it.
    3. Put it out.
    4. Call himself a hero.

    It was 115 degrees fahrenheit today in France. But Trump is sending a huge amount of government climate people to Kansas, where there is no place for them to work. They have a choice, not go, and be fired, or go to Kansas. It's that bad.

    I hope trump hires 2,500,999 Russians to cross the border into the US, just to vote. Would that be illegal??

    Citizens must boycott the census. As for myself, it will line my birdcage. What does it get us anyway? More representation?? Don't need it or want it. They just cater to the illegals. More money for your district? Again, we don't get any of it. The illegals will.

    This will backfire as I think a lot of citizens will dump it in protest. So you'll end up with an undercount anyway!

    There are plenty of other ways for them to intimidate people into not responding to the census. Like orchestrating mass deportation raids, for example. With this loss things are going to get even uglier โ€ฆ Trump is a sore loser.

    When I got a census form without the citizenship question, I wrote the citizenship question on the form myself and then I checked "yes". Any citizen who gets a census form which does not have the citizenship question should add the question onto the form & say "yes"!

    Sorry No victory. The President is still getting the information just not from the census question. Political dishonesty from the democrates who took the question off the census in 2010 after being there in one from or another since 1790. The democrates have been getting extra seats in congress by counting everyone not just american citizens. They don't want to give up this advantage

    Histerical. Democrates the kings of gerrymandering are now against it. What the computer info showed was that the democrates would loose their advantage of gerrymandering if illegals were not counted.

    I was not a citizen in my country for 55 years . Every year I answered the question on the form in my country with a NO I am not a citizen . Nothing happened to me because that question was used for all the right reasons . Not for evil . I don't believe for one second that the ( now) American government would use it for what it's attended for . BTW I'm now a citizen of the country I live in along with the country I came from . Dual citizen , and no I did not come here illegally . This government reminds me of the gong show . I feel bad for ALMOST all Americans .

    Im over 60 NEVER did I think Id see the day that ANY American would have a problem on the census asking if your an American They've been asking that for 100 plus years Any body that's opposed should leave the country. So that means we don't have to say
    African America anymore, just say African to be politically correct so we don't offend those that may be Americans
