Pamela Geller, Big Government: Census Stalkers

Bg census stalkers

Check out my latest piece over at Big Government, Census Stalkers:

And so census goons are now prying into my private life. Welcome to Oganda
– America dominated by Obama Propaganda.

I suspect there is more in the offing. I am not a member of the Libertarian
party, nor do I back their positions on drugs, foreign policy and the like, but
I agree with the statement of their chairman, William Redpath, that “the federal
government’s current census procedures are unconstitutional, unnecessary, and
too expensive.” Redpath pointed out that “the census is constitutionally limited
to collecting only one piece of information about each residence: the number of
persons living in it.”

Redpath made a vital recommendation: “We urge Congress to change the census
laws to comply with this constitutional limitation.” I certainly agree with
that. And he added:

The U.S. Constitution empowers Congress to provide for a census in order to
apportion Representatives correctly. The Constitution does not empower Congress
to use a census for any other purpose. There is no need for Congress to collect
additional information such as names, races, ages, sexes, or home ownership
status. Unfortunately, the federal government wants to use the additional
information to fine-tune its control over the lives and money of the American
people.

Meanwhile, American citizens are not taking this lying down. One reader of my
blog, AtlasShrugs.com, was selected (that is, compelled) to complete the
insidiously intrusive “American Community Survey.” After not answering some of
the question, this reader received a call from the Census Bureau, and explains:
“Fact is that the Bureau didn’t like the fact that I would not reveal racial
issues, health issues, health insurance, the plumbing in my home, details of
employment, what transportation I use, marital history, taxes I pay, my phone
service, education and many other prying questions found in this packet.”

Another reader sent me a copy of the Census form that he sent back. He
answered all the questions that he is actually required by law to answer; over
the rest, he wrote: “Go pound sand.”

That’s the free American spirit, the spirit of the Boston Tea Party, of those
who protested against the Stamp Act.

American must protest the partisan appropriation and intrusive data-gathering
of Census 2010. Obama is once again overstepping his Constitutional bounds. Free
citizens must call him on it.

GO! Read it all.
