    Did you lie on it 10 years ago too, or is this just a "wild hair" that makes you want to lie on the census this time?

    I blew it off in '80, '90 and 2000 as well.

    I said I have 58 mongolians living in my house.

    Was that wrong?

    What lie? I just don't see the need to answer anything beyond question #1, which is "How many people live in your household?"

    I think it hilarious when people lie or don't feel it out, especially people who have a problem with taxes.
    The census helps many, including businesses.
    So in reality you want to slow down the progression of capitalism, and do not agree with " no taxation without representation."

    I pay taxes based on my income - not whether I'm black, blue, purple, or Hispanic. It makes no difference what race I am.

    Which is why I mentioned businesses benefiting from the census. ;)
    How are you going to know the demographics of a community, if you don't take a survey of that community?

    My one single reply, or lack thereof, is of no more value than my one single vote in a national election.

    If any of it really mattered, I wouldn't be given the "option" to begin with.

    I didn't lie when filling out the census. I did not, however, provide them with my name or phone number.
