A Quote by Martin L. Gross on constitution, force, income, people, privacy, questions, and sex

Every ten years, [the Census Bureau] force a large number of Americans to complete an expensive "long form," which was never mentioned in the Constitution. Not only do the Census probers ask name and address, but sex, race, income, property, household furnishings, and dozens of other irrelevant and impertinent questions. For those who refuse to answer, the Census people - unlike such pollsters as Roper or Gallup - threaten federal prosecution. Head counting is part of the Constitution, but this invasion of privacy is not.
