More Government Intrusiveness

Rep. Ron Paul writes about the American Community Survey, which is the federal government's way of finding out about your personal life. Oh, yea, they'll fine the crap out of you if you don't reply.

I wonder if it's illegal to lie when answering any questions. If so, it would seem that this would constitute a violation of the 5th Amendment, since I'm sure that the answers that one gives can and will be used against them in a court of law. I could see some of the answers getting slipped to the IRS for their "review". Or maybe it gets passed on to employers or creditors (or is that "crediters"? Both ways look wrong to me).
