Census Could Send People to Camps

Please pass on this very frightening article.

Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., says Americans should refuse to comply with the Obama administration’s 2010 census because the data could be used for nefarious purposes, including the imprisonment of Americans in internment camps.

Appearing on Fox News, Bachmann said it was the census that allowed the internment of the Japanese during World War II. She also boasted about breaking the law in refusing to complete the census form she received.

“If we look at American history -- between 1942 and 1947 -- the data that was collected by the Census Bureau was handed over to the FBI and other organizations at the request of President Roosevelt,” Bachmann said.

“That’s how the Japanese were rounded up and put into the internment camps. I’m not saying that’s what the administration is planning to do. But I am saying that private, personal information that was given to the Census Bureau in the 1940s was used against Americans to round them up.”

Bachmann said she was shocked that the census would ask for people’s telephone numbers. Although not required by law, the numbers are used only to contact recipients who have incomplete forms.

Bachmann also doesn’t like the fact the census asks about one’s age, race, and the type of home one lives in. According to the Census Bureau, questions on race have been asked since 1790; home language since 1890; rent since 1880; and income since 1940. The Census Bureau has asked what kind of heating fuel heats Americans’ homes since 1940.

Interesting thoughts, other than it's totally improbable and impossible.

*Democrats, Republicans and Independents need to unite to help America, otherwise we will not improve.
I pray for all of America. Dont let your imagination take control. Have faith in our leaders.

Have faith in our leaders, Al? Are you speaking of the ones who have mortgaged our chldren's futures or the ones who voted to kill the American economy with the Cap and Trade bill? Or perhaps you speak of our Dear Leader, who's vision for healthcare in America will result in rationing of care?

WOW! The same republicans that started illegally wiretapping Americans are 'worried' about a census?

Mad Mom,
You forgot the leaders who lied to get us into an Oil war that has cost over a million people's lives.
Those leaders are out of power!

Anonymous, the issue is not the history of war or who started it, or why. The issue today is what is happening to the conduct of our government. Come back when you can answer three simple questions. First, who is on the list of visitors to the White house since 20 Jan 2009. Second, if Barry Soetoro has nothing to hide, why would he pay nearly a million dollars to hide all his records? Third, why did congress not subject him to the same scrutiny as McCain in the vetting process?

Please explain the nature of this approach to "transparency".

Mad mom, why do you suddenly change the topic of "census" to "Let's all bash Obama". If you would prefer, you could submit an article about "Our Dear Leader in All Caps And His Tyrrany Over The Good American People."

Also I agree. This article is frightening because some person came up eith this nonsense.

Al said, "Have faith in our leaders".

If you would like to extrapolate from my comment that this is all about Obama bashing, you are mistaken. All of our elected leaders who vote for these misguided policies are to blame. Does it not take the participation of Congress to pass these bills? As a result, I have NO faith in my leaders, as you suggest I should.

Nothing is improbable with the gangster government that is in Washington today....and I mean all of them.

How naive to sit back and say "have faith" while your rights are being stripped and your taxes going up each and every day.

I would encourage you, Al, to get your head out of the sand and educate yourself on all that is happening and the implications of it all.
