My census form not counted?

Posted on 06/05/2010 2:42:20 PM PDT by Real mad

I filed my census form and sent it back fast. Why is a census worker at my door telling me I did not file. How can I prove I filed so they leave me alone?

They have hired fired and rehired a million people to prop up the jobs numbers. They are going to knock on every door.

Obama wants to expand the census to a yearly thing to up his ‘saved or crated jobs numbers’

Wow, you expect an Obama census to be accurate? They need jobs and most of them are nice people.

Simply state:
I returned my completed form and that’s the extent of my obligation.
I don’t have time for you.

Same thing happened to us! Weeks after sending the darn thing in, I saw my wife outside talking to a census worker. By the time I gout out there to stop her, it was too late, the census worker was getting in her car and leaving. I gave my wife H - E - double hockey sticks!!

Could something be going on? Are they deliberately double counting people in certain areas? For what reason would they do that? Don't put anything past Zero the Marxist.

Welcoem to FR.
The census worker may be a sex predator, or a fake census worker.
Or they may be legit but the overmind demands a recount.

The same guy came to our house a few weeks ago saying that our Census forms were not received. My Mom told him it was impossible since she mailed other important bills along with that form and they all received it so it would not make sense for the census form to have not arrived. So he came back the next day and wanted our info again, just gave him our last name and how many people live in the house. Don’t know what’s going on but it did seem a little suspicious that they are not receiving this stuff

Same here. I live in an area with a high-hispanic population with lots of illegals, and I have a hispanic name. I’d already sent my form in, but a census worker did a second survey, which led me to believe I was being counted twice.

The magic word is 'refusal'. Tell the enumerator that you refuse to answer any questions and to write that in the notes section of the EQ. When the supervisor shows up to try to get you to answer the questions, repeat.

That should be it.

Or, if you don't care, answer the questions again, and they will leave you alone.

The Census is a 10 year interval cluster ****. Your original form may not have been received, screwed up in reading by the computers, or lost by the USPS.

This next election cycle will need more than 1 vote per person to make it competitive for the dim's.

Tell them you're a recovering member of Cannibals Anonymous and you're required by law to give them notification of such.

As an aside, tell them you're now a vegetarian...but sometimes the temptation is almost more than you can stand!

Try to drool a little at this point. And then invite them in and lock the door behind you.

If you live in a conservative district, send it in again... and then a third time just to be sure. If you live in a liberal area, tell him if he doesn’t leave you’ll call the ACLU.

If you're white without a "minority" sounding name (yeah I know, we ARE the minority..), anyway, you can bet you'll be lucky if they count you ONCE, let alone being sure they'll not count you TWICE.

One of the first things Obama did after inauguration was put the Census under direct control of the White House. It's clear now that corruption was the plan and it's playing out as evidenced by some of these FR testimonials. It's sickening yet par for the course from this administration. Bogus "Census" job numbers and the media providing cover for the corruption, and on and on and on..

I know someone who told a Census worker to get the “F” off his lawn and leave. A few days later that property owner found their cat dead in the alley. No joke.

Same here. I figure that I answered every question they asked, which is zero. In my case, I live in a blue state...so if I don't get counted it's probably better for the nation.

I too received a census form, completed and sent it back immediately. About two weeks later, I received another form with a warning saying that its completion is mandatory. I completed that form, wrote a note on the accompanying letter stating that I'd sent one in two weeks earlier. I made a COPY of the letter with my reply and SENT THEM THE COPY to let them know that I had the original documentation. Haven't heard from them since.

One thing here - make sure that the census taker shows ID and is legit. You never know who is knocking on your door these days.

And, BTW, welcome to FR.

Welcome to Free Republic.

It benefits them to double count people. Then when the election comes again, all the dead people and aliens can vote without raising suspicions as the last election did where 0 got more votes than there were people in some places.

Same thing happened to me. Sent in the form, then got a second form in the mail and threw it out (it said you could ignore it if you’d already sent the first one in), and then a census worker shows up at the door.

I’ve rec’d four calls from the census even though I already filed. I just hang up.

My suggestion: Don’t try to explain anything. Just slam the door in their face.

I didn’t send the second one in, since it did mention somewhere in the cover letter that you only need to submit it if you didn’t already submit the previous one. But I strongly suspect an attempt at double counting. This was at an NYC apartment that is a secondary/part-time residence for me, and in a neighborhood that is largely non-white and welfare-dependent. I really wonder if this double-mailing practice was prevalent in predominantly white (and Asian and Indian) suburbs where most people are self-sufficient.

Even if the double mailings were done everywhere, they’d still be much more likely to yield double counting in minority/welfare-heavy areas. When homes are occupied by various unrelated people, and many include illegal immigrants and/or people regularly engaged in criminal activity and/or people who are barely literate, threats of prosecution and in-person visit from government agents are likely to prompt recipients of such forms to fill them out (not necessarily accurately) and send them in, regardless of whether they know or suspect that someone else has already sent in a form for the same residence.

Ask them how many hours of “training” they’ve received vs. how many hours they’ve actually “worked”. Ask them how much they got paid to drive to those training sessions. Ask them how many times they’ve been let go and re-hired by this scam of an agency.

Then tell them to go back and find the form you sent in.

Why bother proving anything? There will be no repercussions and the enumerator will keep coming to your door and your phone whatever happens otherwise. It doesn’t matter whether or not you are counted. The final tally will reflect predetermined totals or ratios that will reflect the desires of the administration for more pleasing voting districts and more “appropriate” minority numbers and locations.
