Filling Out the Census Form
Original post made by Paul Losch on Apr 2, 2010
It was not lost on me that the US Census form was due to be sent on on April Fool's Day.
I sent mine in a few days back, no big deal to respond to it. It is part of our Constitution that requires people to do, as I did this past month, every 10 years.
It appears that this cycle has brought out all sorts of "advocates" who are admonishing the people they purport to speak for to not fill out the form.
Libertarians, Illegal Immigrants, and many folks in between.
I think this is a reflection on how the current climate socially is in a state of confusion, acrimony, and a lack of understanding about how there are basic things that made this country as great as it is.
And it is in our country's Constitution.

I enumerated the people in my home, but I did not anwer any of the questions. No big deal. I fulfilled my consitutional requirement, and was happy to do so.

I listed my race as "Human" and my wife as Ukrainian.
I consider it to be unconstitutional under the equal protection provisions to separate people by race. Classification is by definition separation. Shame on you, Uncle Sam!

"I listed my race as "Human" and my wife as Ukrainian."
Well, you got that wrong.
"I consider it to be unconstitutional under the equal protection provisions to separate people by race. "
They are not separating, they are counting.
"Classification is by definition separation."
According to the Wallis dictionary?
"Shame on you, Uncle Sam!"
Shame on you, Private Wallis
