The 2010 census if approaching rapidly and some people do not know much about it, what it is, what it is for, what kinds of questions will be in it and so on.

Here are some other links that may help in the education of this process:
There has been some concern with all of the government intervention in our lives about the Constitutionality of this particular census.
If you feel that questions like:
Question 8 demands that you pigeonhole yourself into one of 15 "official" racial categories: White; Black; African American or Negro; American Indian or Alaskan Native; Asian Indian; Chinese; Filipino; Other Asian; Japanese; Korean; Vietnamese; Native Hawaiian; Guamanian or Chamorro; Samoan; Other Pacific Islander.
Question 17a asks if anyone in your home has any trouble "learning, remembering or concentrating."
Question 17b asks whether you have trouble "dressing, bathing or getting around in the home."
Question 24b asks how long it takes you to get to work, and
Question 23a wants to know how you get there -- and there are an astounding 11 choices, including streetcar, bus, railroad, ferryboat, or taxicab! Presumably the government will use this information to justify squandering billions of dollars on all sorts of boondoggles.
In fact, a January 10 press release issued by the Census bureau says the data will be used to "allocate states' shares of more than $200 billion a year" in funding. Much of the data is also used by private companies to make marketing decisions, and is therefore a form of taxpayer-funded corporate welfare.
If you find these a bit intrusive the reason is because questions like this are unconstitutional. There is something you can do.
Become educated by reading the information on this post and other sites to confirm what I am saying is true and if you feel led to, fill out only the questions that you feel that you asre comfortable with as long as the minimum listed questions below are answered.
If you decide not to fill out the census, BEWARE, SOMEONE WILL BE VISITING YOUR RESIDENCE as I found out by reading their website.( Can you say coersive government intrusion?)
The information regarding Constitutional significance here:
ACORN's Illegal Census;
Legal Authority to Ask Intrusive Questions Not Present
This Constitution and the Laws made in Pursuance thereof... shall be the supreme Law of the Land...all Judges shall be bound thereby...any Thing...to the Contrary notwithstanding. [Article VI, Clause 2, of the Constitution of the United States of America (1789)]
The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law and is wholly void. Unconstitutional law bears no power to enforce, it purports to settle as if it never existed, for unconstitutionality dates from the enactment of such a law and not such time as branded in an open court of law. It confers no rights; it imposes no duties; affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed. No courts are bound to uphold it and no persons are bound to obey it. [16 Am Jur 256]
The Fourth and Fifth Amendments were described in Boyd vs.. United States, 116 U.S. 616, 630, as protection against all governmental invasions ....of the sanctity of a man's home and the privacies of life. We recently referred [381 U.S. 479, 485] in Mapp vs.. Ohio, 367 U.S. 643, 656, to the Fourth Amendment as creating a ....right to privacy, no less important than any other right carefully and particularly reserved to the people.''[GRISWOLD vs.. CONNECTICUT, 381 U.S. 479 (1965)]
Declaration To Make To Census Takers:"( This is what you do if you decide not to fill out the census in it's entirety)
I hereby affirm that the provisions of Title 13 ....requiring me to disclose my race, personal financial data, birth date, or any other personal,private information to the Bureau of the Census, an agency of the United States government, constitutes an unreasonable, unwarranted search of my person, house, papers, and/or effects, and a governmental invasion of the sanctity of my home and the privacies of life.
As such, these provisions violate the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution, and are thus wholly void and I am not bound to obey them.
I have completed the only those sections of the Census form pertaining to the Constitutionally-mandated actual enumeration, as follows:
1. The actual number of people living at the address printed on the form, excluding untaxed Native Americans;
2. Age of each person in accordance with US Const. Amendment XIV, Section 2;
3. Sex of each person, in accordance with US Const. Amendment XIV, Section 2.
I have thus fulfilled my obligation to the attainment of the actual enumeration of the populace of the United States.Any fine or other sanction that is levied by any office or organization stemming from the unconstitutional provisions of Title 13 in connection with my response to this or any other Census-related questioning will be challenged in a court of law.
