    Should Spanish be an official language of the USA?

    Note: The question is if it's to be an official language, not the official one. English would be the other official language.

    Not just no but HELL NO!

    For over 230 years we have had one language and it serves us well.

    Mexicans are seeking to over though us and take large portions of the West and destroy them as they have done Mexico.

    If Mexicans want a good place to live, they need to create it with what they have but it will never happen because they are stupid uneducated and have no chance of doing better, until they change on their own.

    Not only no but hell no. If you want to live in the US then you need to learn English. Most Americans do not speak perfect English. So we do not expect immigrants to speak like a English textbook, English Teacher,or grammar fag/nazi.Nor do even expect immigrants to even get a degree in English. We just expect them to learn enough English to be proficient in it.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Your attitude is bad to say the least.

    Lets not mention French, or Spanish, Creole, or a **** ton of Indian languages who's speakers are just as American as you. I don't think Spanish should be an official language, but acting as if all Americans speak English and nothing else is plain stupid and really reflects on your understanding of history.

    There should be only one official language in the US; and that, for practical reasons, should be English. But, don’t extrapolate that into requiring everyone here to know English. Not knowing English should not be effectively against the law.

    I find irony in your post... is it intentional?
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    Absoultely, positively, not.

    IF we're going to go to having an official language, it should start and stop at English.
