Make English the Official Language of the United States

Target: Government of the United States
Result:
My political views have changed in the last six months. I now realize how bad an idea this is. Thanks anyway, but I think there should be no official language. The government has no right to tell us what to speak, English or no.

Petition Background (Preamble):

January 28, 2006

A petition to make English the official language of the United States.

For years we have had to deal with illegal immigrants selfishly making us teach Spanish in schools. In this country we speak the English language, and legal immigrants are usually happy to learn it.

We do not want to keep pandering to special rights groups and criminals from over the border.

We implore you, the elected officials of the United States to make English the official language of the United States, use full immersion techniques in schools and make it impossible to get a driver's license in any other language.

We feel this will make it so that less government money is spent on things that could be solved in cheaper more efficient ways, and we would retain our dignity as a united country.

Petition:

We, the undersigned, want English made the official language of the United States.
