Obama's Census is unconstitutional

  • Follow Letters

Augusta's mayor says to answer all 10 of President Obama's Census questions, even though the Constitution only allows the census to ask one question, i.e., how many people live in this house?

Obama's Census will be a major invasion of privacy and 90 percent illegal, according to the Constitution. Will you cede your info to an illegal government scam? A Census official then says the questionnaire is "safe, confidential and you don't have to fear any reprisals."

That's a threat -- the implication being that if you don't toe their line, you do have to "fear reprisals." And any reprisal is, of course, unconstitutional.

Obama is really getting carried away with his dream of being a dictator. Some Americans are waking up. It's time for all Americans to wake up and, for example, only answer the number of people living in your house. Anything more and you've handed your freedom to an illegitimate government con job.

Census records are sealed to

Census records are sealed to the public for 73 years, not 70. Other records, like the Kennedy Assassination are sealed for 75 years. And yes this is calculated to the "life expectancy" of American citizens. No one "named" would be alive to dispute the data? The 1880 Census was used to calculate the number of citizens who would be eligible for Social Secutiry benefits in 1951. SS collections were made for 14 years before any payments were made. Prior to 1951, your survivor got the exact amount your paid in in 14 years.

It seems like the only thing

It seems like the only thing that people who are bearing arms are doing is shooting themselves via suicide or shooting others by mistake. Maybe you should have said we need to be aware of fearful people who are scared and bearing arms. And this thing about the Census is just laughable. Stay indoors and don't answer the doorbell, the USA does not need to count the dummies.

While census records are a

While census records are a great source to genealogist, they provide essential data for the control of American citizens. These records are not "sealed" to the government, just to the citizens who filled out the form. The first census I remember was by Rome and it was for ethnic and taxation purposes. Why in a color blind society does the governemnt constantly require racial origin. The federal government is the "largest racist organization" in the country.

Simply amazing how the left

Simply amazing how the left raised hell when the last admin wanted to listent to phone calls with terrorists in order to protect US citizens, but when THIS admin wants to know how many guns you have so they can protect themselves from the citizens, they have no problem with that.

To those of you in favor of

To those of you in favor of providing the Obama "controlled" census with info collected & obtained by ACORN, you may as well provide them your bank account number as well. You are likely expecting a hand-out to be dropped into it anyway. I seriously doubt that you contribute (pay taxes) to our country, but you very likely feed from the trough with the many other parasites that ignorantly support Obama.

The right wing is loosing it.

The right wing is loosing it. They will have regular people scared to admit in public they are republicans. If I were Tim Pawlenty or Mitt Romney I would run as an indy let the crazies have Cheney/Palin. You noticed Romney,Pawlenty nor Jinal is participating in all this death panel/Nazi/Indoctrination stuff. If the economy is not fully recovered Obama will be beatable but now with the nut wing conspicarcy theorists on your team it will scare everyone off. I mean there is a reason only 500 people showed up at the Stop Obamacare the rest didn't want to be seen with the cooks. Augusta alone has over 50,000 repubs and 50 show up. That says it all. That doesn't includes the other 100k within 60 miles. You guys are embarrasing the Joe Scarborough's and Lisa Murkowski's of your party. They are true fiscal conservatives who realize you win with conservatism and ideas not fear and lies. Good luck to people who want at like this is the first census ever or something. They haven't seen the forms or been asked one question but they know Obama is going to use it agains. Jeez

And the right wing media is a sewer of information in this country. Tigger, keep your gun and your fear, overburdened with a name like that you will never move forward. Stay in the past and watch the spew of Faux Noise. I'm going forward and you're going backward. It's that simple. Eat my dust, as they say at the dirt tracks.

Obama has run Southern white

Obama has run Southern white Christian Conservatives crazy. He wants to kill thier grandmothers, his mother brought him from Kenya to Hawaii to become our first black President, national healthcare is code for Obama empowering blacks, and now the Census is an invasion of privacy and unconsitutional? Southern white Christian Conservatives are not satisfied being hypocrits, now they have stooped to being politically insane. No matter what Obama proposes they feel threatened and robbed. Southern white Christian Conservatives are becoming terrorists to all of us because they don't feel comfortable being led by a black man. Southern white Christian Conservatives have no plan to help all Americans, they are fast becoming political obstructionists because they hate Obama so bad. Obama wants their guns, Obama wants to kill grandmama, Obama wants to pay black folks bills with white folks money, and Obama's mother knew 47 years ago he was going to be President so she brought him to the US in disguise to a Hawaiian hospital to get him a legal birth certificate. Southern white Chrstian Conservatives have all gone crazy!!

We register our cars, our homeownership is a matter of public record, our ssn is tied to all assets (except cash in hand), we file income tax returns every year, the MIB stores all our medical history, we have credit reports that track how we pay bills our debt and where we make purchases and these people act like the census is going to give some deep unknown info about them. I mean it is totally irrational. I can't even answer your questions. They make no sense.

To Concerned Native: In

To Concerned Native:

In regard to your comment of only 500 folks showing up downtown this past Thursday, there is no need to show up to speak to the Republican representatives; it would simply be a case of preaching to the choir. Besides, we are talking Richmond county; it is a lost cause since the majority of its constituents will defend Obama right or wrong because of their skin color.

As for the Nazi bull----; you've got it wrong. The Dems & their supporting networks have been attempting to make it appear as if the Republicans have been referring to the Obama team as Nazis. Sure, I suspect there are a "few" throwing the accusations around; however, it's not like there were not any Liberals throwing around the same names during Bush's years.
Funny how things change; you've got to be able to take the heat when you're in the kitchen.

When a census taker comes to

When a census taker comes to your door he already has the address. He only needs the head of household's name and those of others in the household, their age, race, sex. I can't see where anything else would be needed. Occupation? I will give them the necessary information, nothing more.

Tigger, You are so correct.

Tigger,

You are so correct. C. Parker is another example of the ignorant out there that will defend Obama's doings to the end regardless of how wrong they are simply because of skin color; talk about racism!
Parker and countless others are the same ones that believe OJ is innocent, Walker is innocent, and Marion Berry is innocent.
Comments by those that believe like Parker are to be ignored because they stem from an internal hatred festered by ignorance.

Tigger, what you believe as

Tigger, what you believe as fact isn't alway supported by facts. A prime example is the exchange which will be made up of hundreds of private insurers and 1 govt option. That you say means you can't choose from the hundreds of private insurers. I still can't understand your logic on that one. Particularly since you thing the govt is so bad a management it would stand to reason that you would believe everyone will you the private plans.
