    The Census questions are coming!

    Bull’s-eye central is afoot. The thousands of volunteer census workers assigned to get answers to questions from every household in the country has launched. How old are you and members of your household? What is your religion? Have you ever been on food stamps? What is your phone number? What is your race?

    Magically we have ACORN as one of the groups at the center of collecting data nationally. Don’t you just want a stranger from ACORN coming to your door, saying you have to answer personal, intrusive and unconstitutional questions for the first time in our census history? According to Representative Michele Bachmann, she has stated publicly:
    “I know for my family the only question we will be answering is how many people are in our home. We won’t be answering any information beyond that, because the Constitution doesn’t require any information beyond that.”

    Census bureau spokesperson Shelly Lowe didn’t waste any time taking Bachmann to the woodshed by reminding her of a portion of the U.S. legal code saying that if anyone over 18 refuses to answer any of the questions asked by census takers you can be fined up to $5,000.

    Of course, predictably, the left and census brains are implying Bachmann is above the law and any of the rest of us who might rebel by not answering intrusive questions are horribly in error and will be fined if not more consequences.

    We collect census info every 10 years and it is in our constitution that we do need to reveal how many people live at our home. That is for good reason since money is allocated to various states and members are elected to office by knowing how many people need representation in various areas around the country.

    All manipulative and personal questions are a violation of our rights and frankly none of our Government’s business. When money and potential, political representation is linked to the outcome of census numbers collected we should have all the more concern that a group like ACORN, full of indictments in over a dozen states for fraud and misrepresentation is even involved!

    The question we all should have is what is the Government planning to do with all this personal info?

    Could our personal info be ever used against us? According to Rep. Bachmann some of the members of congress have had their web sites hacked into. How will all our private information be protected, not sold, not stolen and not used against us at some time?

    The census folks and this administration say abuse of the info won’t happen and we are safe. Are we safe much like the Japanese were in the 40s under Franklin Roosevelt who USED CENSUS RECORDS TO ROUND UP ALL THE JAPANESE AND PUT THEM IN INTERNMENT CAMPS. No, our Government wouldn’t dream of over reaching with control and abuse on the American people.

    I encourage all to think very carefully about what your rights are and what you should do in answering questions that are vividly unconstitutional!

    With a Government that wants more and more control and already identifies masses of law abiding citizens and vets as potential domestic terrorists we must start drawing lines!!! We must draw lines of protest regarding this fraudulent over reach regarding the census; draw lines regarding intrusion on private enterprise and business, draw lines regarding loan shark like plans for additional taxes, via cap and trade, the endlessly growing stimulus bill, and potential UN, global taxation schemes a foot as we speak.

    We don’t have a choice anymore. Those of us who want a country left must find our voice, really read and know our constitution, declaration of Independence and bill of rights!!! Once these truth’s and foundations are in our heads, organize, march, protest where needed and get behind real public servants!!! God bless America and our right to privacy!!!

    The census, among other things will determine representation. Congresswoman Bachmann could lose her seat if enough people refuse to be counted.

    You can point out how, exactly, she'll lose her seat, can't you?

    Yeah, she's been an asshole on a couple of occasions. This isn't one of them.

    Why would the government give a shit what religion you are? The census taking is a joke in the first place. They can't come into your home to count noses. I could say there are 15 of us, and they could not prove I was wrong. I could say there is only me, and they could not prove me wrong.
