Marcel Reid, within a few years of entering the world of grassroots activism, shifted from pointing out institutional injustices against low- and middle-income communities to calling foul on the very “social justice”

2010 Census Most Personally Invasive Ever

In 1790, the first census was taken in the United States, just three years after the ratification of the Federalist’s Constitution, which mandated the census. Prior to this, under our original constitution, the Articles of Confederation, no such requirement existed.

The 1790 census asked only for the number of people in one’s household, their ages (which was reported as an age range, not a specific age), their sex and little else. The purpose of the census, at that time, was to enumerate the population in order to estimate the number of representatives each state should be allowed in Congress. Period.

Since then, the census has become increasingly demanding of personal information, though the transition has been so gradual as not to cause much alarm among the people. Also, it has been, until now, completely voluntary.

That voluntary aspect of the census stops with 2010. Not only will you be asked many more questions about yourself, your family and your home, but you will be required to answer every question. If you don’t, a census taker will come to your door to get the missing information. If they are not successful in obtaining it, they will ask your adjacent neighbors for the information (good luck with that, these days, since most people don’t know their neighbors’ names, let alone anything else about them).

You say you can’t understand the anger and frustration of taxpaying citizen voters in this country, so you are reacting with “punching” back, or bewilderment, cowardice, or outrage.

You are so far removed from “ordinary” life you can’t understand why we ordinarily polite, mostly middleclass people are so angry. 

For generations we have treated you with respect, even when you betray us time and time again.  You steal our money, our freedoms, our futures, our Bill of Rights, our hopes and dreams and still think we should respect you?

For all the “Honorable’s”, pleases, begging, cajoling,  and polite acceptance of your cat of nine tails…what did it get us?  Only more, and more arrogance, corruption, rudeness, chicanery, brutality, and utter disregard for our wishes and well being.  While we were being polite and respectful you were busy weaving your protection racket scheme to cover each others’ rears, feather your nests, and keep us in the dark.
