I Enjoy Filling Out Surveys

I found something interesting when I went to Jeffrey Bennetts site the Federal Observer today. It took me back in time a few years. When the last national census (Please read the posting below this one, Edward Meeks IV won't be counted in the next census) was taken we were some of the lucky ones that got the long version. It had a lot of questions that had nothing to do with the purpose of the census which is described in Article One of the United States Constitution. They wanted to know if we had a toilet that would flush, did we have jobs outside the home, if we did what time did we leave home and when did we return, I'm sure you get the drift. We had a lot of fun filling it out. We gave answers like does not apply and added comments like it sounds like someone is planning to rob us. Some of our friends were afraid we would be fined or arrested. We weren't worried, we knew we hadn't broken any laws and nothing ever came of it. According to this column by Congressman Ron Paul all of that could change unless something is done to stop our run away federal government soon. How would you feel about filling out a 24 page survey of intrusive questions? If passed this will not be voluntary, you could be fined up to $1,000 per question if you refuse to answer. I still don't think it is the federal governments business to find out if we have a working toilet or not, but I don't think I can afford to take this survey. Thank God for elected officials like Ron Paul, I pray he can get this stopped.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

The census was meant for two purposes; taxation and representatives that is all the government needs to know. Any other questions they ask are unconsitutional but I have a good idea some of us may be recieving massive fines in the years to come.
