You have seen it on TV, you have seen it on the street corners, in advertising, and forms have been given out to people. Its the US Census, over the last week I have been postulating for this blog.

It’s a game, with government money at stake, in the middle of a recession, and in the middle of crushing deficits.

The premise for the argument is that the Government cannot appropriately distribute funds for schools, hospitals, and bridges, that they cannot give your community its cut without a proper counting of its population, including minorities.

This is not the original intent of the Census, which is to count population and determine Congressional Appointments.

And, while it has been used in modern days to distribute funds, it should not be used as a way of distributing funds based on illegal populations, or based on ‘minorities’.  That certain people are more valuable then other people based on race, religion, or creed.

Then in Texas, the text-book ‘wars’ are raging on over people’s education.  During that you had people complaining about the lack of minority representation.

While I want the truth and for education to express the greatest amount of information possible to the people no matter what, no man can teach another man everything, and no man can learn everything.

But in short it comes to Do Not Play the Game, if they insist on playing games, do not play them.  Plane and simple.

If our government insists on being big, being Statist, being socialist, being fascist, being whatever, then refuse to play.

If they want to take care of you and give you everything, then do not give them an excuse to do that.  Take care of yourself, whether it is with education or with money.  Take care of yourself and attend to your own family, make it stronger, encourage others to do the same.

And then change the debate.  Move the Overton Window from slavery to freedom.

And with education, do not rely on your school to teach you everything, if you have an issue that you do not know about, then go research it yourself.

Be as strong as you can be on your own, with as limited a reliance on government that you can get away with.

That is the only way we will change the game.

  1. Some people have said that the US immigration office is going to trace census respondents, find out if they are in this country legally, then locate and deport them if they are not. It’s part of a crackdown on undocumented workers — SO wrong!
