Uh oh.

The Obama administration has taken over control of the US census. It will now be overseen by the white house, and not the commerce department.

Since the founding of this nation, the census bureau has performed a head count of the US population every ten years. It's always been, and was supposed to be, a non-partisan task performed by a non-partisan government entity. One very, very important reason for this is what the census is used for.... that is carving up political control of the country based on population densities. The sizes and shape of congressional districts are based on census data, and Federal spending is also based on it.

Let me be blunt..... the nations political shape is taken from the census, and the Obama administration has just taken over the US census. For the first time in our nations history, the US census will now be a wholly partisan political activity.

The Party now begins to build it's permanent majority status.

In a one party system, The Party can do whatever they want........ and will.
