Social services for tent city; some move to E. Providence (click title to entry - thank you)5:33 PM Mon, Jul 27, 2009
I probably don't have to write much here so much as mention the obvious.
The 2010 Census may very well reveal a very 'morphed' country's populous.
No one can deny there has been a huge demographic shift in income and wealth in the USA. There are people displaced in the USA and may be struggling with 'where to vote' or 'if they are allowed to vote' even though they sincerely have the desire to participate in the 2010 elections.
I am an apprehension to state, the 2010 Census will be a bit ludicrous compared to the 2000 Census, but, it isn't as though the USA hasn't sustained such dynamics before. As a matter of fact the USA has a history of four significant economic implosions, but, none with the dynamics of 2008.
The democratic leadership in any district in the country needs, literally, to beat the bushes to find out whom is where and ask them to vote. I think by the end of the day, there may be some very interesting surprises as well.
Social Service Offices and Police Departments can be real resources to 'finding voters' or perhaps the circumstances of Americans have improved far more than we know and this dynamic is a minimal impact. Let's hope that is the reality in the year 2010.
Let's face it the constituency for the Republicans clearly won't have these issues.
