Posts Tagged ‘2010 Census’

census2010_red_smI got my 2010 Census Questionnaire in the mail today.  Apparently, they must have gotten the message as it is considerably shorter than it was in the past and it does not include all the extra questions that were anticipated.

Here is what is on the Questionnaire

1 – How many people live in the household?  This is the ONLY question you are constitutionally required to answer and this is the ONLY question the government is constitutionally allowed to ask.

The next few questions ask whether any of those persons indicated in question one are not related and whether you own your home outright, whether it is mortgaged, rented, or you are not paying rent or own but you are occupying the space (squatters).  It also asks for your phone number.  Then it starts asking questions about the individual who completes the questionnaire – full name, sex, race, current living status (in jail, living in the home, student, etc.).  From there it asks those same questions for each individual enumerated in question 1 – up to 12 individuals.

I only answered question 1 – sealed it up in the envelope and it will be in the mail tomorrow.  I fully expect to have a census taker come by the house or question my neighbors within the next few months to try to get those other questions answered.  I have already spoken with my neighbors – I suggest you all do the same.

Art 1, Sec. 2 of the U.S. Constitution states the government is only to use the census for enumeration for the purposes of congressional apportionment and representation.  They are not allowed to ask for any other information.

Just a quick reminder – for any of you who haven’t seen that stupid-assed Ed Begley commercial – the census begins next month. According to Article 1, Section 2 of the United States Constitution:

Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.) (The previous sentence in parentheses was modified by the 14th Amendment, section 2.) The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct…

They are NOT allowed to ask you any other question(s) other than – How Many People Live Here?  They don’t need to know your name, your age, your sex, your race, your income, etc etc.  The ONLY purpose of the Census according to the U.S. Constitution is for the apportionment of Congress.  All this other crap they use in order to grow the size of the government is entirely unconstitutional and not allowed.

Educate your neighbors as well.  I was a census taker in 2000 before I really understood the Constitution and our Founding Fathers.  If you only fill out the section that is required by law and the constitution – they send out Census takers to your house.  If you aren’t home, the instructions are for you to knock on the neighbor’s doors and ask the neighbors if they can fill in the blanks you didn’t.  Tell your neighbors not to offer up any information to the census takers – they aren’t obligated to answer any questions on your behalf.

If it’s not bad enough they are spending over $15 Billion of our tax dollars to do this – an audit has found there has already been a waste and abuse of HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of our tax dollars – well before the census even actually begins.  Gotta love our big government – can’t get anything right at all – and we really think they’ll be able to accurately count all 300+ million people in this country without wasting more of our money?

They are trying to make the claim that the patriotic thing to do is to completely fill out the census – when – the reality is – the actual and true patriotic thing to do is follow the constitution and ONLY provide them the total number of people living in your household – and nothing else.
