I was supposed to fill out the US Cenus 2000
. I was one of the 1/25 people or something that got the extra long
form. They did ask me my name
and the names of our family
, our ages
, how much I make a year
. Some other reasonable
questions. But on the extra section I was asked questions such as "How many pets
do you own?" and even questions of sexual
preference! That is unacceptable. The government
does not have a right to know these things about me.
This goes along with my belief about gun
control. I personally, do not own a gun. But when someone does a background check on you so you can ppurchase
a gun, they do not jus throw that check away. They send it to the government. Then the government knows how many of what kind of guns you own. Then, they can take it away
from you whenever they want.
