Will you participate in the Census Boycott ?

Conservative opponents of the Obama administration are urging supporters to resist the upcoming US census, saying it asks too many questions and reflects increasing government intrusion into private matters.

The census, held every 10 years since 1790, is becoming a focal point for the growing anti-government movement in the US.

The government will endeavour to count every person living in the US, regardless of legal, immigration or citizenship status. The count, which helps determine political representation and the distribution of hundreds of billions of dollars in government funds, is mandated by the constitution.

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, a virulently conservative, anti-Obama Republican from Minnesota, has urged supporters to give only the number of people living in their household, saying nothing more is required by the constitution.

There is an odd little issue here...

We really ought to get past going online and confessing to all we intend to do. We need really to get back to basics, and communicating with actual people more. I think we ought to start forming flashmobs. "Flashmoms" keeps rolling in the back of my brain...
"Suddenly, a dozen grocery shoppers began singing and dancing in the entrance to Costco. Police were called, but by the time they arrived the women had resumed peacefully consuming and so were not tazed."

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.
