I had a census worker come to my house as well, but not to the neighbors ( who voted fro Obama). They said my house was not even listed that it exists.
While I have only been here 2 years, the house has stood for more than 30 years.
What IS here is a person who has NEVER registered to vote (me) at all. ( I'm 45) And, don't tell me I have no right to complain if I don't vote. I have the right to complain that no one running is worth voting for.
Right now, I think they are underestimating the American people.
It's not just the economy we are ticked about.

Acorn is a voter registration group. A big issue in the democratic party is voter's rights and registration. Along with voter registration, both parties use a program called Vote Builder. Vote Builder stores your address, name, what you like etc. From this list members of both parties can assemble mailing lists and even create personal messages to voters from whom they are seeking support. This program also keeps track of who is not registered so that materials can be sent out for people to register to vote. I don't believe that everyone in the government is corrupt, and this is probably just information for Vote Builder.
Also, your gps coordinates aren't private data. They are just as public as your address. Acorn is a big group and is nortorious for hiring homeless or the less fortunate because of the easy job and decent pay. I wouldn't be shocked that some of the workers have a big head and feel high and mighty and abuse their job. People do that at every workplace and in all walks of life. This shouldn't strike us as unusual.
I think a lot of conspiracy theories have decent credibility. The acorn gps thing though is probably nothing more than actual census work mixed with adding people to Vote Builder who weren't already in the system. This would also explain why some houses aren't done.
