So, every ten years, there's this huge thing called the census where everybody in the United States gets counted up.
But, what's the point of it and why's it so important?
Turns out, it's been around for a really long time and it's got a big role in how our government actually works.
NBC News' Lawrence Jackson explains.

You notice that's there's no mention of US citizenship or Americans. So they count illegal aliens (30 million plus) so they can determine how much power from a state sits in the congress and Senate? You see why democrats want to flood the country with aliens, give them free stuff and get their head count and cheap labor for states like California and New York. No non US citizen should be counted. Americans on the moon? They don't care if you're an American in the US!

Question; can we trust our government with personal information? THAT IS THE QUESTION!,…For anyone who has read history and paid any attention to the news for even the last decade that answer is not only no,..BUT HELL NO! The compulsory US census of 1940 was used to illegally and unconstitutionally incarcerate tens of thousands of Asian Americans, most of whom lost their property and businesses and they were placed for four years in in concentration camps, human in comparison to NAZI concentration camps,..but concentration camps nevertheless,…as far as I am concern our government forever lost the right to demand anything but a volunteered answer to any future census. Have things changed, right,.. can we trust our government now, I mean that was a long time ago right? Two names should tell you that it absolutely has not,..and those names are SNOWDEN and CLAPPER. The United States Government has a very long way to go earn trust again. Our Government still has a lot of work to do to regain my trust and it would go a long way to build trust to request but not demand citizens answer the damn thing!

The Census was used to round up and imprison US Citizens of Japanese decent. Do not a answer the Census unless you want to give up your privacy.

You are not giving up your privacy. Seven Questions - 7 only. All these questions could be answered by someone that knows how to manipulate the internet -- hackers and openly dishonest people, plus other legitimate questionnaires. It does NOT even ask anything about how much money anyone in the household makes.
