    Here's the official word.

    "According to United States Code, Title 13 (Census), Chapter 7 (Offenses and Penalties), SubChapter II, if you're over 18 and refuse to answer all or part of the Census, you can be fined up to $100. If you give false answers, you're subject to a fine of up to $500. If you offer suggestions or information with the "intent to cause inaccurate enumeration of population," you are subject to a fine of up to $1,000, up to a year in prison, or both."

    I would think repeated contact might constitute criminal trespass and harassment. Try that one on them... hmmm??

    Seriously?

    You're right.

    Its a big conspiracy, and not answering the questions completely foils their evil plans.

    Have any of you been lucky enough to be "randomly selected" to receive the additional Community Survey? We were and the estimated time to complete the form is 38 minutes. Goes into more detail. How did our household get so lucky. Have received 3 additional mailings telling me to be sure and mail in this survey or I will be breaking the law.

    What dud256 said. The biggest penalty will be them constantly coming back to get their answers. Just answer whatever they ask and be done with it. You are not going to win this one.

    I couldn't believe how racist the questions were. Typical left-wing crap. All the questions were designed to break us up into groups and sub-groups. Divide and conquer, hasn't it always been the method used by the left-wing sociailists in this country. I haven't sent mine back yet either. They came by and left a card this weekend. It's original intent was a count to determine the population and how many congressmen in each district. It has evolved into into it's current socialist form of divide and conquer. They are the true racists in this country.

    Why is the left so obsessed with race. We shouldn't even have government run schools so I could care less about how they allocate the money they steal from us. If the government didn't run the schools the people wouldn't be as brainwashed as they are toward socialism and away from freedom. I tried to fill it out, I really did, but couldn't stomach it and threw it away. The first box was the only one that mattered, how many people live in your home. It should have ended right there.

    It is not too difficult to think of a few positive outcomes from better understanding the ever changing demographics of our country.

    It is just a census .... nothing new here guys. It isn't exactly like any of you posting on a public forum are living underground or 'below the radar' anyway.

    Jeez, the form took all of 10 minutes to fill out. Quit whining.

    It is costing more than 4 billion dollars because people won't fill out and mail back the form.

    Thanks to the morons of this country, our schools (and many other items) won't get that money. Instead it is going to all 650,000 people going to the doors of the "conspiracy thinkers-- everything is a conspiracy".

    And to all of the folks that filled out the form and mailed it in, thank you for doing so and for saving us some money.

    Somebody explain the census conspiracy to me. I don't understand. Isn't it constitutionally mandated?

    The combined state, local and federal government are close to making us slaves via taxation, the IRS, the FBI, the BAFTEtc...and every other police agency, and you're worried about the census?

    Seems like too much revolution and rage, misdiretced and way too late.

    Respectfully,
    Joe

    At least I know where some of the thousands of dollars the government has stolen from me has gone. I hope they catch my wife at home and not me. I am afraid all their questions to categorize people will upset me. I don't think any of it is any of their damn business. Interesting to see how all the sheeple fall in line. Do as your told and don't question anything. Not hard to see how hundreds of millions of people have accepted socialism is it, most to their own detriment. If they catch me instead of my wife I will probably pay the government fine for not falling in line.

    We mailed the form back that we got in the mail right away, no big deal ...

    In the mean time I have had two phone calls and two people ring the front door bell saying they are from the Census Bureau, one of them looked like a guy who was going to ask if he could trim my fruit trees and did not speak english very well which is the Official Language of this State ... I hate to say it but it pays to be cautious in this day and age and in most cases one cannot be cautious enough ... I advised the people who called on the phone that our form was sent back in and did the same with the two people who came to the door ... The one person who came to the door said they were sorry that they had the wrong address ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    I am sure all the questions categorizing people are for the government affirmative action programs. Screw the government. As a married, white, heterosexual, non-cross dressing, Christian male living here for generations none of them apply to me anyway.

    The government already knows everything they ask, the census is a make-work project. They know how many are in your home, They know your house payment, they know if you have kids in school, they know if you have car insurance on the cars they know you have. They know your income, they know your property taxes. They know your phone number. There is a new website that publishes your name, family, address, income bracket, occupation, and sometimes politics. I NEVER heard from them and NEVER post anything on face book or twitter, yet all my personal information is there, for who ever types in my name and state. This is all a big money spending plan to make you think they need your permission to bother you.
    As far as Federal funds for schools, the Feds are not supposed to be handling that money anyway, let alone distributing it. Public schools are the states responsiblity. The Feds overstepped their constitutional bounds years ago. The State is supposed to be the highest authority with direct voice of the citizens. The Fed is supposed to be a servant of the States for national defense and transportation.

    You will not be prosecuted for not answering the census or at least that's what I've been told by my friends that are working for the census. It would cost too much to prosecute a homeowner and it's not going to happen. But you should do the census if for no other reason then keeping your local taxes down. On another note, it's providing temporary jobs for alot of people out of work which is not a bad thing.

    Census data is used to distribute money to your town and schools. The schools get alot of money from the state, but if you don't want to fill out the census...don't. But don't complain when your town gets less money and your school and town taxes go up.

    It's also used to determine the number of reps you get in the House of Representatives. At the very least, the census taker wants the number of people living in your house on April 1st because that will take care of the above 2 situations. The rest of the data is fluff. Used for all sorts of things - for example: Local governments use census data for planning decisions, such as where to build schools or provide services for the elderly, where to build new roads or locate job training centers.

    Private businesses use census data to identify consumer and labor markets. Businesses rely on the data to help decide where to locate their companies and where to target advertising. I'm sure there's more but that's just an idea.

    For all the folks that think the govenment is out to get them...have they come for you yet? and for that matter, why would they want you?

    and yes, the government has all sorts of info on you but it's all over the place and in different databases manned by people just like you and me. To get it all together and come after someone would be a lot of work. If you're so worried about it maybe you should get rid of your credit cards and bank accounts. After all, they know EVERYTHING about you and it's all in a database with access from the internet.

    All this fuss about the census....Stop wasting time and go out and shoot!

    Vtrav,

    Very well said. Right on target. Sadly there are those who always hear the black helicopters over their heads.
