Census 2010 commercials began to run on television so I decided to look this one up. I feel that the 2010 Census website is very misleading. They do not inform you of what your rights are in choosing to not answer the intrusive questions that are not mandatory from our Constitution. Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann was interviewed by Fox News' Megan Kelley and I highly recommend you watch this very important interview so you can understand why it's important to know your rights as an American Citizen.
When you go to get Food Stamps they are required to give you your Rights and Responsibilities pamphlet, but in this case, I have not found any rights posted on the Census 2010 website. Their website is full of misleading 'encouragement' to answer their questionnaire and they certainly don't want you to know what your rights are, because they really want to know personal details about your life. Did you know that highly controversial organization, Acorn,(video in link contains adult verbal content) is involved in this Census?
Do the American people really trust Acorn to be involved in taking a mandatory census of the people on behalf of the Federal Government? Golly, do the American people even trust our own Government with asking such personal questions about us? My own 17 year old daughter, Jess, said to me today, "Know what your rights are, before you give them up." Smarty!
Do you know what your rights are in regards to the 2010 Census?
Do you know what kinds of questions they're going to be asking you?
Do you feel comfortable giving them your children's names and birthdates?
