2020 entered somewhat quietly, for me, which was good, because I was exhausted from being constantly worried over the state of our vanishing rights, and our environment, and body politic while those with the actual ability to, you know, do something about it…I don’t know, decide what colour sheepskin seats they want in the next private jet. (guessing here)
This year truly holds the potential of so much nightmare fuel if you just let it, because it’s not only an election year, but a census year (pay particular attention to this portion):
The results of the 2020 census will determine the number of seats for each state in the House of Representatives, which mirrors the number of delegates for each state in the Electoral College, for elections in 2022 to 2030.
That concerns me, along with the potential ‘funding/loss of’ aspect of things. An undercount could negatively impact how federal funding is allocated to states and local communities for stuff like roads, schools, emergency services. etc..and so it seems this administration’s anti-immigration message has found its audience: potential census-responders:
This could result in a potential undercount of immigrants, so congrats on a job well done, everyone in 45’s admin, I guess?
