But why stop there? Why not amend this bill to ban the collection of all demographic data for use by the federal government. Still on board, democrats? Such data has been used to limit the rights of individuals, reapportioning them, as the party in power sees fit, to various groups based on race, gender, faith, ideology, etc, until finally, we are no longer equal under the law. They should count our numbers for the purpose of enumeration, and that is all.
