We're talking about forcing everyone else to conduct business in a language other than English, vote with numerous languages on the ballot, thereby eliminating the public homogeneity that made this country great.

Spanish has been the native language spoken by TONS of people living in Texas, Arizona, California, Nevada and Florida, who spoke it before English. Those were Spanish-speaking territories that we took over. When we did, we ended up with a lot of Spanish-speaking Americans.

"Forcing" them to learn English was never what made this country great, and you have no argument as to why they should be forced to conform to your language and not you to theirs.

I don't understand why you English-firsters won't just learn Spanish. Why won't you? Do you see some value in NOT knowing Spanish?
