Today Neil Cavuto and John Stossel took on the 2010 Census and its encroachment into our personal liberties, beyond what is required by the Constitution. Apparently the government 2010 Census workers will come to your house up to 6 times if you don’t answer the survey completely, and after the 6th time they’ll go ask your neighbors. Excuse me? Really???
WTF, man? The Constitution says that I am only obliged to divulge how many people live in this household. No race, no gender, no names, PERIOD! I sent my form in with just that info – the number of folks who live here. Will I answer the door when they come knockin’? Nope. Do I care if they’ll ask my neighbors about me and my sacred abode? Nope. I’ve already talked to my neighbors and we all feel the same. We’ll tell them, by refusing to ‘census-spy,’ to GO. POUND. SAND!
And if I had a lawn, I’d personally yell at them to GET OFF IT!
Oh, and one last thought – these stupid commercials and mailers for the Census are saying we need to fill them out completely to get our “fair share.” Is anyone other than me sick and tired of hearing about peoples’ “fair share?” What makes answering race & income question relevant to getting my community’s “fair share?” Absolutely nothing. I supposed they’re pandering to the parasite class who feels their race or ethnicity should afford them MORE government benefits (read = ‘handouts’) or representation than others. That’s nothing but a bunch of dog squeeze, and appeals only to the entitlement, class-warfare segments of the population.
