Are you a US Citizen?
A controversial question for some as it might not count all the illegal aliens present in a State. A census number allocates funds as well as providing accurate numbers of representatives. I would like to bring up 2 counterpoints.
1) We should NOT be funding illegal aliens with any sort of welfare.
2) Congress does NOT represent people that cannot vote for them. If that were true, every boy would have endless candy and every girl would own a pony, and every felon would have free prostitutes.
