    Or you can always lie. tell them that there 100 illegals living with you and need government bailout. Use the money to buy guns and ammo

    In answer to your queston, I don't think that they can do much if you refuse to give info...just don't answer the door.

    Just do like I do when "they" call from the Yellow Pages, wanting to update my info.

    Hello, Mr.Z, I am from the yellow pages and need to update info.

    Me---Ok

    Guy--Are you still at this address???

    Me--- No, we have moved---Make up new address and give him

    Guy----Ok, Now what about your mailing address???

    Me---No, it's not the same, it's now P.O. box what ever comes to my mind.

    Guy---Oh, ok, Now I need to verify your phone number.

    Me---Nope, different number, it's now (make up number)

    Guy---Yes, but I called you on this old phone number???

    Me---Yes, but it is wrong.

    At about this point they realise everything they are going to get from me will all be wrong, and they just go away by them selves, and I just smile.

    If they can get 30 illegals in a F150 pickup you can get at least 100 in a small house

    The next census will be whatever the New Messiah and his buddies at ACORN say it is. Whether you help or hinder will make no difference in the final count.

    So since the White House is now running the census maybe this statute does not apply?
    The Second Amendment ...... Because crime SHOULD be a hazardous occupation.

    If you want to piss off a conservative, lie to him.
    If you want to piss off a liberal, tell him the truth.

    The White House isn't running the census. They backed off, in part because of the backlash, in part because Judd Gregg withdrew from consideration to become Secretary of Commerce (his nomination was why they made the 'While House will run the census' announcement in the first place, to placate left wing groups who didn't want a Republican running the census).
