The Census - On What Authority

Is the taking of the Census by the United States Government legal? You may have thought that it is indeed legal, I thought so especially since the Constitution of the United States allows for it. Then again have you ever read just exactly what it is with regard to the Census that our Constitution allows? I have not, at least not lately. You may be surprised at how little of the information collected acrually is authorized by the Constitution which by the way is the only document from which any authority at all of our federal government is derived. Watch the following video and be prepared to be flabbergasted when considering what authority our government has, if any, to demand our personal information in the Census.

Pretty interesting stuff isn't it!

All the best,
Glenn B
