    A Census Census

    Minn. lawmaker vows not to complete CensusOutspoken Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann says she's so worried that information from next year's national census will be abused that she will refuse to fill out anything more than the number of people in her household.

    In an interview Wednesday morning with The Washington Times "America's Morning News," Mrs. Bachmann, Minnesota Republican, said the questions have become "very intricate, very personal" and she also fears ACORN, the community organizing group that came under fire for its voter registration efforts last year, will be part of the Census Bureau's door-to-door information collection efforts.

    "I know for my family the only question we will be answering is how many people are in our home," she said. "We won't be answering any information beyond that, because the Constitution doesn't require any information beyond that."

    Shelly Lowe, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Census Bureau, said Mrs. Bachmann is "misreading" the law.

    Article 1, Section 2, The House
    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.
    So, who will fill out the "whole" census, and who will fill out the part the Constitution actually requires, the head count?

    I don't see that the federal government, or anyone else, needs to know how many TV's I have, how many refrigerators, how many shoes, how many condoms, and all that other snooping bs.

    Nope, the government needs to know that there's three Americans and one foreign national (legal) living in my house, and that's it.

    How about you? Are you going to feed Uncle Messiah's demand for unlimited access to your personal information?

    (BTW, it says THE CONGRESS shall conduct the census, not the White House.)

    And there's no point in hiring ACORN to participate in collecting the census. They'll have to send a second team of honest people along behind them to count again, anyway.

    Yep...god damn "Uncle Messiah" for creating the US Census Bureau and approving all the questions they want to ask! Heck, I had almost forgotten how non-intrusive the 2000 census was, prior to Obama's meddling! This time will certainly be worse, and it's all because of "Uncle Messiah."

    (By the way, I think "Uncle Messiah" is an improvement from your referring to him as "The Messiah." It's nice that you're at least honest about your venomous racism. Personally I suggest you combine all of your favorite nicknames for him, to get the full effect from your racism. I suggest Uncle-The-Kenyan-Messiah.)

    Why not, unless you have something to hide?

    Because it's no one's business, whether it's something that should be hidden or not.

    What if I had a secret TV addiction and owned 92 TV's? Why should I have to report that to anyone?

    Re: A Census Census

    Since neither options represent my view and both options require agreeing with the OP poster whichever you pick I didn't respond.

    Due to the large percentage of mixed race people added to there is no way a person can know their racial ancestry for certain, the question of what race are you should be eliminated. A national racial identity registry would seem unconstitutional.

    Problem #154 with political forum members: they care. About everything. Even when nobody else does.
