Ok, so here's a compromise: We make the census entirely voluntary, but make Voting mandatory, with non-compliance punishable by fines or jail time. Hell, the Aussies do it - and if we are already on the "Other (progressive, stable democratic) countries are/n't doing it, why can't we?" train, then let's see how far that train goes!

As far as the reasons for gutting the census, I found this Op-Ed piece by a notable Conservative-watcher particularly instructive: http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/2010...
