A few evenings ago an employee of the U.S. Census Bureau appeared at my home and told me that he needed to ask me some questions. I told him that I had filled out the Census questionnaire and mailed it in about a month and a half ago. He stated that he understood that, that he had been hearing that a lot lately, but he needed to have me answer the questions again because my form had not been received by his agency.
I had promptly responded to the questionnaire because I had been inundated with government propaganda about how important the information was to my family, my community, and even my nation.
Now my state government is telling me that I must vote by mail or risk contracting or disseminating a virus that apparently is not all that serious unless you are in a high-risk group. What, if any, assurance can I have that the U.S. Postal Service will deliver my ballot on time to the proper location, given the treatment my (and apparently other’s) Census forms received from them?
This is not something we should take lightly. Our nation’s future is at stake, and I do not want to trust it to an organization that cannot even deliver a completed Census questionnaire to the proper recipient in a timely manner.
One more thing: I’m not a Republican.
