Republicans will lose many seats in Congress due to right-wing paranoia about the census and refusal to fill out census forms, gloats the liberal web site Daily Kos.
The number of Congressional districts a state gets is based on how many of its citizens return completed census forms. Because voters in conservative states are completing and returning census forms at lower rates than voters in liberal states, conservative states will lose many seats in the House of Representatives that they would otherwise gain due to increases in their population.
Republican-leaning "Red States" will also lose out on billions of dollars in federal funds, which are apportioned based largely on population.

I will allow them to count me. That’s it.That is all they have a right to do under the Constitution.
Good Gawd, make it end!
So, FReepers, please return your census form.
We honor the Constitution around here. The census is Constitutionally mandated. Be a good American and get counted.
(Unless you’re in a blue state.)
Conservatives are returning the census. They’re just providing only the required information.
Also, many are probably waiting until April 1, since the form actually asks questions as to the state of the household as of April 1, and conservatives tend to be a little more literal-minded about things like that.
I doubt it. Conservatives are more responsible and likely to fill out the basic information than many liberal scum. They may not fill out all fields but they will fill out the basic info.
Please people don’t give them an excuse to undercount us.
Or how many completed forms each individual returns?
The liberals will fill out multiple census forms.
That's it. They can go scratch their ass if they expect me to answer questions about my race or income or home ownership or anything else.
I will not willing play Social Engineering Stratego with them.
Not so. It was sent in with the accurate count.
When liberals are “concerned” about us, I know that we must be doing the right thing.
It won't be a function of who sent in the forms -- it's a function of who does the counting.
That 'completed' bothers me. Is an incompletely filled form not counted for some purposes?
The census was about representation in Congress (fair say), not about divvying up money the Federal Government never should have taken from the people in the first place.
What I want to know is why half of the page is taken up with racist questions, including a half dozen varieties of spanish speaker, but never is there a question asking how many there are American Citizens.
This implies the intent of the Federal Government to apportion representation and funding to districts on the basis of occupancy whether by citizen or illegal alien, regardless of the number of citizens present.
I gotta problem wit' dat.
You might want to read the full article.
You are absolutely correct. Ours is filled out, and will be mailed April 1 or shortly after.
Besides, I don’t want to give them a lot of extra time to bother us, LOL.
I sent mine in, but it doesn’t matter because Obozo and his minions are running it. They probably hit the circular file as soon as they come in.
They aim to find every way possible to cheat. Nobody will stop them.
I filled mine and mailed back a week ago and I think the vast majority of conservatives did the same.
Oh OK, there ya go — now lunatic Kos Kids are a legitimate newz source to the Examiner.
Gimmee a freaking break ...
