Libertarian won't answer other Census questions

Like most Libertarians, I will fullfill my civic duty and will truthfully answer the one question that the Bureau of the Census is authorized by the Constitution to ask: "How many persons live in your household?" I might even give our names, to facilitate the enumeration. I will refuse to answer all other questions, such as those pertaining to my race, ethnicity, gender, marital status, economic status, occupation and home appliances.

By the bureau's own admission, the data collected "... are used to distribute government funds to communities and states for highways, schools, health facilities and many other programs you and your neighbors need."

Libertarians feel a civic duty to refuse to provide information that encourages Congress to continue unconstitutional programs.

When somebody shows me which clause of the Constitution authorizes any federal agency to confiscate and distribute funds for schools, health facilities, local roads, and individual and corporate welfare programs, I'll consider completing the form. Until then, I will refuse to cooperate with their unconstitutional schemes and I will not pay their $100 fine for my refusal.

I urge all citizens who revere our Constitution to stand with the Libertarians. Tell the Census Bureau how many folks live in your home -- nothing more. Since Congress does not have the guts to uphold and defend the Constitution, we citizens must do so. Let's do it now!
