The answer was “2”.
That is all.
The public announcement commercials I hear on the radio say that they use the census data to determine our “fair share” of funding. One commercial says something like,
If a town had 100 students, they’d need about 5 school teachers. If next year they had a lot more students, but nobody filled out the census, they’d still have only 5 teachers.
Don’t you think that the townsfolk (i.e., the people impacted most by changing demography) would realize their town’s population was booming, and plan accordingly? Why should the people living in the neighboring town (or State, for that matter) pay to subsidize their growth?
You know what’s fair? Not having to give all that money away to the bureaucrats in the first place. If we didn’t give it to them, they wouldn’t need to worry about whether we got our “fair share” or not. If they didn’t have all this stolen money with which to bribe us, they wouldn’t be able to bribe us. Simply, our “fair share” is whatever we earns we keeps.
