- Have you noticed dozens of languages being spoken by
citizens and illegal aliens in America? Do you feel the disrespect and
the separation? Do you feel violated? Are you angry that new citizens and
illegal aliens disrespect us so much that they refuse to learn our language?
Have you heard the growing Spanish speaking TV and radio stations across
the USA? Do you feel like your country is being stolen from you along with
your language? Do you feel the confusion it creates?
- It's much worse. Former President Bill Clinton created
Executive Order 13166 which is an un-legislated multilingual policy that
requires all government agencies like the IRS, Social Security Administration,
the INS, Department of Transportation, the Department of Justice, and others
to print all documents in foreign languages and provide for non-English
speaking people. It costs you millions of your taxpayer dollars to service
foreigners who came to our country but will not honor that privilege by
- Over 329 languages are spoken in the United States making
it impossible for all minority languages to be represented in such sectors
as government, education and health care. Further, it creates separation
and balkanization when you can't speak to fellow Americans.
- The cost of Executive Order 13166 in the healthcare sector
alone stands at a staggering $267 million of your taxpayer dollars annually.
In the last California governor election, over a dozen languages were represented
on the voter ballot. Whose country is this anyway? Who is paying for it?
- Former Colorado Governor Richard Lamm said, "A nation
is much more than a place on a map. It is a state of mind, a shared vision,
and a recognition that we are all in this together. A nation needs a common
language as it needs a common currency. America has been successful because
we have become one people. There is a social glue of a common language,
a shared history, uniting symbols that tie us together. We live under a
common flag, which we honor and salute."
- One scholar, Seymour Martin Lipset said, "The histories
of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories
of turmoil, tension and tragedy. Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, Lebanon all
face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy,
if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. France faces difficulties
with its Basques, Bretons and Corsicans."
- Lamm said, "Some people say Switzerland is an example
of a successful bilingual country, but that claim does not survive close
scrutiny. Switzerland has divided its geography into three separate areas,
each of which has a common and dominant language-French, German and Italian."
- Immanuel Kant said, "Language and religion are the
- Why is EO 13166 a bad deal for Americans? It's an outrageous
rip-off for an American taxpayer as well as an administrative nightmare.
It's a monstrous burden to healthcare officials and a major injustice to
immigrants. It will destroy national unity and our culture. From the melting
pot, we are becoming a battle ground of language confrontation and conflict.
- Cost? Hold on to your hat: Welfare/food stamp costs at
$21 million for translators. Congressional Budget Office estimates costs
at $150 million annually. Health care is $180.8 million for multilingual
out-patient services, $78.2 million for multilingual in-patient services,
$8.6 for multilingual emergency room services.
- Taxpayer money funneled into Medicare is being diverted
to pay for requirements to provide interpreter services. It's killing doctor
time with patients by forcing them into longer sessions with so much confusion.
And, those illegal aliens are not paying for medical services. Taxpayers
- But what about you? How do you feel about your country
overrun by those who refuse to speak our language? How do you feel about
your kids suffering a dozen or more foreign languages in their classrooms?
It dumbs down the entire educational process for your kids. In Denver,
Colorado where I live, 50 languages are spoken in our public schools. Consequently,
50 percent of the potential graduating class flunks out or drops out every
year for the past five. The classroom chaos is so horrific, one in five
Denver teachers quits or transfers every year. At North High School in
Denver, they're lucky if they can get half the 1,400 students to attend
class each day. How do you think your kids suffer when someone that cannot
- Four factors were required to make this Republic viable
and the greatest success in the history of the world:
- 1. We have enjoyed a highly educated population.
- 2. We have a similar moral code which everyone follows.
- 3. We maintain a similar ethical standard for all
- 4. We have sustained one standard language so we
can debate together and move forward together as a people.
- Ladies and gentlemen of America-we are losing all four
factors. If you look around you, we are losing the cohesive thread of our
society at over four million legal and illegal immigrants annually. They
are not assimilating nor are they speaking our language. The obvious result
of that will be much like the Biblical story of the Tower of Babel. Once
everyone couldn't speak the same language, they argued, fought and separate
into different factions. You're seeing the same thing happen with blinding
speed in America.

- We must mandate that English is the only official language
of America and that it is the only allowed language for all official documents,
schools, voter registration, driver's licenses and everything else. We
need citizens who can read, write and speak English. We must demand it
for citizenship. It matters little if you speak a dozen languages, but,
if you're an American, you speak English.
