Vote "Present" on the Census

My friend Spartacus gave me a good idea from a comment of his on Michele Bachmann and her plans on telling the government to MYOB when it comes to asking for anything more than a simple enumeration of the population.

We should all emulate the great Senator from Illinois, Barack H. Obama, who bravely and repeatedly voted "Present" on legislation he did not want to be held accountable for his vote, or was too busy running for office to read, or didn't have the cojones to take a stand on!

We, however, should do so on principle and boldly write "Present" on any question the Census Bureau asks, that we believe to be too intrusive into our personal lives, or unnecessary on the part of the government. (Besides, it's shorter than "None of your business"!)

Our President has set the precedent! Heh.

  1. Write it in a large, umm, what's the word I'm looking for, perhaps flagrant(?), script. Similar to the way John Hancock signed the Declaration of Independence. For the same reason, the reader won't need glasses to see the answer!
