    The 14 characteristics of fascism are:
    1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism -Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.
    2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights-Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.
    3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause -The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.
    4. Supremacy of the Military-Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.
    5. Rampant Sexism-The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Opposition to abortion is high, as is homophobia and anti-gay legislation and national policy.
    6. Controlled Mass Media-Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.
    7. Obsession with National Security-Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.
    8. Religion and Government are Intertwined-Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government's policies or actions.
    9. Corporate Power is Protected-The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.
    10. Labor Power is Suppressed-Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed .
    11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts-Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts is openly attacked, and governments often refuse to fund the arts.
    12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment- Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.
    13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption-Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.
    14. Fraudulent Elections-Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

    Thomas Hofeller the deceased GOP strategist considered the mastermind of gerrymandering to carve up districts and give Republicans the edge while suppressing minority votes was the reason for the citizenship question.
    The evidence for the citizenship question is uncovered in Thomas Hofeller's hard drives. That evidence was uncovered to late for the Supreme Court decision, but will have to be brought to light in any new litigation.
    As of June 10 The Washington Post Fact Checker has cataloged 10,796 times Trumpo The Orange Clown has lied to the American people since taking office.

    The Census falls under the Constitution…constitutional principles are UNIVERSAL, and pertain to EVERY power exercised by the federal government. Decisions about our communities are NOT within the class of powers granted to the federal government…especially when having NOTHING to do with apportioning direct taxes or determining the number of representatives in the House of Representatives.
    The number of people residing in a house, and state pursuant to Article I, Section 2, Clause 3 of the Constitution, is the ONLY information they are empowered to request. Ones “name, sex, age, date of birth, race, ethnicity, citizenship, telephone number, relationship and housing tenure, etc.” have absolutely NOTHING to with apportioning direct taxes or determining the number of representatives in the House of Representatives. Therefore, neither Congress nor the Census Bureau has the CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY to make that information request a component of the enumeration outlined in Article I, Section 2, Clause 3.

    How many more times does Der Fuhrer Drumpf need to violate the rule of law and basically tell the courts, I am bigger than you all, before something is done? He is a Domestic enemy, an illegal President and a Russian Agent. He belongs in Gitmo with the other enemy combatants.

    The census is spelled out in the Constitution. It's purpose is solely to count "persons". … that's for anybody who actually cares about the Constitution anymore. Based on all the uninformed, Fox-fed comments, I'd say not too many.

    Since when do democrats care about the constitution? You hated the second amendment… you hated the fact 14th amendments only grants rights to citizens of the country ( not illegals) and the fact that the 12th amendment is for the electoral college to give PRESIDENT TRUMP the victory ( not population size). Its time democrats actually believe the Constitution or SHUT UP!.

    Are they still trying to upkeep the illusion that America is "good???"

    Good without illusions leaves the truth as proof of this country as completely evil.

    Don't blame the righteous one you judged to so called save YOURSELVES for JUDGEMENT of the world and Judgment Day.

    Can evil save itself?
    Surely death was written for it.

    The Constitution says for the census to count all persons whether they are citizens or not. The census is NOT a count of citizens only. This is what the Constitution Says. Most people don’t know this.

    "It's easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission." (Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper) Has anyone checked to see if the forms have been printed already with the census question? What will happen?

    The court did not say that the question was unconstitutional. Instead, the court said the reason for including the question appeared to be a pretext and, therefore, an arbitrary action under the administrative procedures act. I really don’t see why motive is even relevant for a question that is both reasonable and constitutional. Trump should issue an executive order that says “As the president of this United States and the person responsible for enforcing the law, I want to know how many citizens and non-citizens are in this country. From that, I’ll determine how many are here illegally and allocate resources to deport them.” If the Court still refuses to allow the question, then it is acting unconstitutionally by stepping into the shoes of the president. At that point, Trump should consider ignoring the court and adding the question anyway.

    The partisan warfare over the Mueller report will still rage, but one thing cannot be denied: Hussein Obama looks just plain bad. The potential "collusion" narrative was invented to cover up the Obama administration's failures; the Mueller report makes it clear that the Russian interference failure was Muslim Brotherhood traitor Obama's and Muslim Marxist traitor Brennan alone. “Obama was the commander-in-chief when all Russiarussiarussia of this happened from 2010”, Scott Jennings, the first real CNN journalist.

    I don't get it, I am an American citizen and have been my entire life. I have been a legal adult for almost 40yrs. and I have lived in the same place for almost 30 years and in my life time I have received and completed 1 (One) census , it was in the 80's and have never seen one since. If this is supposed to be done every 10 years all I can say is where the hell has it been distributed. I haven't seen one since then. So why are people losing their minds over this? It's apparently not going to every citizen and only to a percentage of the population. When I was young I thought it went to every residential address in the country, but I have since determined that this is not the case. How can anyone determine anything when the census doesn't go to every residential address in the country? Before you say it does, I can assure you it doesn't. I have only received one in my 30 plus years of marriage. The census system has no idea that this household has produced 2 additional children since the last time I received a census. They are now adults and are no longer part of the household. So according to the census bureau there 2 unaccounted for citizens . So why are you going insane when they don't even know who the citizens are.

    I don't understand why this is so difficult. Canada has been asking the citizenship question on the census since 1902. It's useful information and the idea that it's "racist" is just stupid.

    To all patriotic Americans this is a message from a Vietnam vet. When the census form comes to you in the mail do not feel it out. Write in big letters across the Forum in a marker that you are a US citizen and that you do not recognize this census form. That you will not sign any or fill out any census form that does not have the question of citizenship in it. Then send it back to them. God Bless America our President Trump and his family and our flag Old Glory
