    I don't agree with Judge Nap on much, but he nails it on this question. Say, "NO" to the citizenship question. Trump is all wet.

    Actually that was the recommendation of the Commerce Department before the SCOTUS decision--the government has enough information on people that could be data-mined that would probably result in better numbers. It is the same data that people want to use to model the census rather than do a traditional mail out form.

    As for wins and losses, painting the democrats as for illegal immigrants and him as opposed to them doesn't ever seem to be a loss for him. If you haven't figured it out yet, trolling is his bread and butter.

    Well they are supposed to be impartial no matter what, but you have to wonder what is going through the heads of the "Conservative judges" on the Supreme Court what is going through his mind when he makes comments like he has that they make their decisions just because they don't like him.

    The Left loves to conveniently shift government power to it's most cooperative branch, and away from the currently opposition branch.

    Maybe Republicans should finally learn how to play the Dems Dirty games.

    Shift power? Have you looked at the Constitution? "Three co-equal branches" of government. I guess they are more powerful when they do their job? :nocknockHT:

    Why does POTUS even need to get permission from the SCOTUS to ask a question on the census that should be on every census?

    just a common sense question and most Americans think the same way as you on the Census Question . Everything TRUMP is doing is just a way for the TRUMP to show himself off and be compared to the unAmerican dems . Especially with Elections coming up '29again' .

    Exactly. Whose rights are being violated by asking the question on a totally voluntary census?

    Sadly he has backed down.
    It would have been great to have an accurate citizen / non citizen count and redistribute both money and House seats accordingly. But California and New York would be big losers so it's no surprise the Dems cried loudly about this.
