I am not answering the door at all. The Constitution says,'head count only.' I left a note on my door stating 'one household only, not obligated to answer questions!' There is no law I have to give my name and other unconstitutional questions! You Americans are the dumbest sheeple on the planet! How dumb are you people in America giving the government information? They would have to read the Miranda Warning to me, even then,'I have nothing to say!' DUH! I would love to see them try to fined me! Because it would be an interesting court hearing!(which would be thrown out anyway!) I have already consulted with a legal counsel on this one! You Americans are scared of your government by fear & intimidation, it's time to wake up and stand against this bullying and fear tactics! Wake up sheeple!

the U.S. Constitution states "enumeration". that's all they'll get from me, how many people live in our home.
a friend of mine said that a census worker came to her house and when my friend politely stated that she was busy with her baby, the census worker became hostile and started accusing my friend of "refusing to participate" and advised her that she WILL be fined. ya, that's how the government can get our cooperation. send out some part time, seasonal worker who thinks they have some sort of authority. that'll work!

Thanks Tommel! Your friend should of called the sheriff's department! The sheriff's department is the highest law enforcement agency in the county and can tell the feds to go stick it like other sheriffs are doing across the country!(Like in the states of Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and Ohio, just to name a few).

I would of had that Census employee arrested for disorderly conduct like one guy did in Texas! Another guy escorted a Census employee off his property in Utah, when the Census worker called the police, he called the sheriff's department and they told the Census worker to get lost!

I like how the mainstream propaganda media brainwashes the stupidity out there that you 'have to' cooperate. Oh really?? What? I'll go to jail if I don't answer and cooperate? I liked to see how that will stand up in court! Like when the police question you, you don't have to answer the police! 5 words you say, " I Have Nothing To Say!' The media makes like you do have to answer or you'll go to jail!

How dumber is America getting? No wonder why we're losing our liberties in this county!

the funny thing is that my friend's husband is a police officer, who just happened to be gone at the time. he's now sitting by the door and waiting for the same census worker to come back. i believe he'll be making an off-duty arrest!

Doesn't this seem like a tremendous waste of money for the government to employ all these people to go around trying to physically collect information that could be easily found on my tax return? I don't see these people having jobs if a republican were president. There are better things for federal tax dollars to get put towards...

Really? Yesterday was my first day on the job. Everyone who was home answered the questions. If they felt uncomfortable with something such as race or giving out their name I just leave it blank like what the manual says. I was very polite and didn't threaten anyone with fines or imprisonment.
I agree though. Headcount only. If it were up to me, and many of you here a census interview would go: Hello, I'm ____ from the Census Bureau, is this 123 Whatever St.? Yes it is. How many people live here? Three. Thank you sir/ma'am, have a nice day.

This is all New World Order Propaganda...The real reason these liberals want you to fill out the census is because they ARE SCARED they are about to lose power in Nov 2010.
After all the scandals with ACORN and this Administrations gestapo tactics we will not be filling out anything from this Unconstitutional Illegal Government.

I filled out my form when I got it. ONLY the info. required.. Head count of my family. AND as to the "race" of us? I checked the box for "other" and wrote in AMERICAN!
What else matters?

In response to John,

do you realize by cooperating with the census your helping your community get public funding and more representation in government? Although they shouldn't be jerks. Sounds like they were too dumb to to yell how you would benefit from cooperating.
