    Per my US Census 2010 envelope "YOUR RESPONSE IS REQUIRED BY LAW"

    Am I risking hard time? Will they put me with Madoff? Are there conjugal visits? Will I have access to Glock Talk in the "pokey" (pun intended):faint:

    There is a secret prison in Alaska for trouble makers like you. I hope you like cold weather.

    Why do people resist filling out a ten question census form once every ten years? They want their 2nd amendment rights but a constitution required census is an intrusion? I don't get it. You can't pick and choose what you want out of the constitution folks.

    The Constitution does not mandate a census. It mandates an "enumeration" and any attempt to claim otherwise is fraudulent. An enumeration is "to count, or to ascertain the number of." In the context of the Constitution, the goal is to ascertain population (both total and those of voting age) in order to guarantee appropriate representation in the house.

    That's all I fill out - name and date of birth.

    But that's not even the reason I won't fill it out as thoroughly as they'd like. Various government agencies already collect this information. It's not that I believe the census is unconstitutional, I just think it's a complete waste of resources.

    If you're in a free state, you should fill out the number in the household and that's it. No groupthink info for the racist preferences crowd to feast on when they go dishing out handouts.

    If you're in an urban failure, you're already being "represented" by illegal aliens and fraudulent votes, so you should probably trash the thing and help hasten the loss of reps. That's the only way to keep them from running the country into the ground the same way they did to their cities/states.

    I believe age, sex, race, and number of people is all that is required in the constitution.

    Government goes further than that, people have every right to be pist as most see it as an intrusion in their lives no matter how big or small.
