    Here are the rest of the pages. This is the first time I've scanned with the Vupoint Magic Wand, sorry for the quality.

    Isn't the "number of people" already on the regular census? Wouldn't make sense to just get the number of people from the random survey.

    I've received a few throughout the years. Never filled a single one out, they all found their way to the garbage.

    I got the "long form" census in 1990 with all the questions on it, I answered all the "census" questions, and since there was a warning all question had to be answered truthfully by law, I did just that.....

    Is it written in standard English or Ebonics?

    Maybe you could write "no comprende" across the front and mail it back to them.

    The only question I answered was how many people live here. Then I sent the survay back today with this letter attached:

    "To Whom it May Concern,
    Pursuant to Article I, Section 2, Clause 3 of the Constitution, the only information you are empowered to request is the total number of occupants at this address. 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 that 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 laws passed by Congress.
    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.
    Respectfully,

    A Citizen of the United States of America"

    ^^This^^ Is probably the best response, particularly attached to the (presumably) blank form. No doubt providing false information, or "defacing" the form by writing this response on the form itself, would bring more attention (and potential pestering) than the satisfaction of doing so would give.

    If I get one, I will do the same!

    I found the letter online while researching ACS. Very informative site: How to Legally Refuse to Participate in the Census Survey | Truth is Treason
