    Some folks see government as the answer to all the problems they are incapable of solving for themselves. In reality, government creates more problems than it solves. Those who govern best, govern the least. A census is needed, but government prying into your private business is not.

    One of the most outrageous invasions of privacy perpetrated by our hypocritical government. Aren’t we all just people?

    If race isn’t an issue, why are those racial profiling questions asked?

    I would like to urge all freedom-lovin, guvmint-hatin Republicans to just say NO to census takers. Refuse to fill out the form. The gummint doesn’t need to know where you live!

    Repeat: Republicans, if you love your freedom, don’t tell the nasty feds where you live. Refuse to cooperate. Teach the Obama administration a less!
