Guess they’ve been listening to Monica Michelle Bachmann (R-MN). She told them to beware the US Census.
The national average on the return rate for census forms is 34%. In much of Texas, the more Republican the area, the lower the return rate. In Briscoe County in the Panhandle, McCain/Palin won nearly 75% of the vote — and 8% of locals are sending in their census materials. In King County, near Lubbock, McCain/Palin won nearly 93% of the vote — and only 5% of locals are answering the census.
Who needs more seats in Congress or federal grants for highways anyway?
