2016 Census -- WTH ?
#1
Question 
Seems I'm "special." well at least my zip code is special. The Department of Commerce sent out a census questionnaire. The alleged purpose is to explore ways to improve the 2020 census.

Section I, Article II of the US Constitution specifically gives government the power to conduct a decennial census. The purpose of the census is to apportion seats in the House.

I see no lawful reason to respond to their 2016 "census."

I refused to answer it one year and a guy showed up at my house. Asked a couple of questions and said, "thank you" and left. I presume that I am already on some HSA list because of my (now expired) hazmat endorsement so they probably already knew most of the answers.

I am aware of 13 USC 221. The US Constitution takes precedence over any law written by Congress; and the US Constitution calls for a decennial census.

13 USC 221 calls for a $100 fine for refusal to answer. I'll pay it with dimes.

4th Amendment:

Quote:The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Gone are the days when a census taker would simply ask how many adults are in the household (for Constitutional "Enumeration" purposes).

Enumeration (definition): "to ascertain the number of"

All the census was intended to do was to find out how many people lived in any particular household.

Give them the number of people in your household and shut the door. That's all you legally need to answer, and I'm not even certain you're absolutely required to answer that if you don't want to. All other "laws" requiring you to tell the .gov all sorts of personal details about you or your family fall under the 4th Amendment. Higher laws trump lower laws, and the Constitution is the highest law of the land in the U.S., and United States Code is subservient to the Constitution.

The reason for the 2016 census can be found at the link below. Seems like they are just testing methods of data collection in to get ready for 2020. Would not be a big deal to me. "Don't sweat the small stuff".
