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.

I forgot to send mine in. Had it filled out as much as I was willing to, but it was here on the coffee table. lol So, the census guy came by. I gave him the form. He wanted to ask me some questions but I told him it was on the form.

I never received a census form.

Am I an “undocumented” American?
