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 and culinary 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.
