Quoted -- The Constitution does not allow for all of those questions to be asked. That is why we choose not the answer them. The constitution does, if fact, allow for these questions to be asked. Article 1, Section 2, of the Constitution state: Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct. Key to the phrase, "in such Manner as they shall by Law direct." The first census in 1790 asked, "the number of the inhabitants within their respective districts to be taken; omitting in such enumeration Indians not taxed, and distinguishing free persons, including those bound to service for a term of years, from all others; distinguishing also the sexes and colours of free persons, and the free males of sixteen years and upwards from those under that age." Additionally, failure to comply with the census was punishable by a $20 fine, in 1790. Now, tell me what part of the current Census you find unconstitutional.
