govt census scam
This is what I gave to the census worker when they came to one of my residences in 2010. I NEVER heard back from them again.
Feel free to save it for 2020.
To Whom it May Concern,
Pursuant to Article I, Section 2, Clause 3 of the US Constitution you have sworn to uphold, the only census information you are empowered to collect is the current total number of occupants at this address.
The correct answer to that question is 2.
My "name, sex, age, date of birth, race, ethnicity, telephone number, relationship and housing tenure" have absolutely nothing to do with apportioning direct taxes or determining the number of representatives in the House of Representatives. Therefore, neither Congress nor the Census Bureau have the constitutional authority to make other such information request a component of the enumeration outlined in Article I, Section 2, Clause 3. In addition, I cannot be subject to a fine for basing my conduct on the Constitution because that document trumps any contrary laws passed by Congress.
Legal cites for this position are: Interstate Commerce Commission v. Brimson, 154 U.S. 447, 479 (May 26, 1894) "Neither branch of the legislative department [House of Representatives or Senate], still less any merely administrative body [such as the Census Bureau], established by congress, possesses, or can be invested with, a general power of making inquiry into the private affairs of the citizen. Kilbourn v. Thompson, 103 U.S. 168, 190. We said in Boyd v. U.S., 116 U. S. 616, 630, 6 Sup. Ct. 524,?and it cannot be too often repeated, that the principles that embody the essence of constitutional liberty and security forbid all invasions on the part of government and it's employees of the sanctity of a man's home and the privacies of his life.
As said by Mr. Justice Field in Re Pacific Ry. Commission, 32 Fed. 241, 250, `of all the rights of the citizen, few are of greater importance or more essential to his peace and happiness than the right of personal security, and that involves, not merely protection of his person from assault, but exemption of his private affairs, books, and papers from inspection and scrutiny of others. Without the enjoyment of this right, all others would lose half their value.'"
Note: This United States Supreme Court case has never been overturned.
My having now fulfilled my census obligation under Article I, Section 2, Clause 3 by disclosing the above information and number of occupants data you are hereby demanded to immediately depart from this property by foot or in any government vehicle you have parked without my permission on this property, making NO illegal collection of GPS targeting location data and not return until 2020.
Have a nice Day,
A Citizen of the United States of America
