Lefties: Why is it a bad thing for the government to know how many citizens and non-citizens are in the country?

I hope we can get some direct and thoughtful answers to the above question.


What's the difference between conservatives and liberals?

Conservatives get angry when you lie to them. Liberals get angry when you tell
them the truth.

Improper framing?

It’s a great thing to know the population size.

If you think a citizenship question was going to tell you how many citizens and non citizens are in the country I have a bridge to sell you.

Its funny how the lefties here can't give an answer to a simple direct question. Deflecting, dodging and name calling is all they've got.

Conservatives get angry when you lie to them. Liberals get angry when you tell
them the truth.

Because the party in power might use the information to unfairly make a power grab?

Roberts (a conservative) said the reason Trump gave seemed disingenuous.

That was why he got thwarted.

Did you not know this stuff or are you playing stupid?

Thanks for being the first to at least attempt to give an answer to the original post. You think any of the other lefties will come up with an original thought of their own and attempt to answer?

That is the answer.

And Roberts stopped them from doing it because of that.

Why the confusion?

Actually, I think the reason Obama removed the question from the census to begin with was an effort to unfairly make a power grab. Power goes both ways. One side wants to flood the country with non-citizens so it benefits their political fortunes and the other wants them gone to protect the country and its citizens. Which side are you on?

Still hoping for some thoughtful answers from others.

So you think the SC came to the wrong decision?

Did you read Roberts rational for not letting trump do it?

You're trying to drag the thread off into the weeds. You gave your answer. Lets see what others have to offer.
