US Senators Vote Against English as America’s Official Language!

Posted by Orrin Woodward on January 10, 2008

I just read another incredible article.  On June 6, 2007 33 senators voted against the English language being America’s official language.  What is up with that?  America has for centuries been the melting pot of the world.  People from all nations have come to America and learned our culture
including our language.  Why would so many senators reject something as basic as the English language for the official language of America?   Retired US Colonel Harry Riley was extremely upset at the lack of patriotism displayed by these senators and wrote:


Your vote against an amendment to the immigration Bill 1348……to make English America’s official language is astounding. On D-Day, no less, when
we honor those that sacrificed in order to secure the bedrock, character and
principles of America.

I can only surmise your vote reflects a loyalty to illegal aliens.  I don’t much
care where you come from.  What your religion is.  Whether you’re black, white, or some other color…..male or female……Democrat, Republican or

But I do care when you are a United States Senator representing Citizens of America….and Vote against English as the official language of the United States.

Your vote reflects Betrayal.  Political Surrender.  Violates Your Pledge of Allegiance.  Dishonors historical principle. Rejects Patriotism.  Borders On traitorous action and, in my opinion, makes you unfit to serve as a United States senator, impeachment… Recall……..Or other appropriate action is warranted or worse.

Four of you voting against English as America’s Official Language are
Presidential Candidates:  Senator Biden, Senator Clinton, Senator Dodd and Senator Obama. 

Four Senators vying to lead America, but won’t or Don’ t have the courage to cast a vote in favor of “English”  as America’s Official Language when 91% of American Citizens want English officially designated as our language. 

This is the second time in the last several months this list of Senators have disgraced themselves as “political Hacks”, Unworthy as Senators and certainly unqualified to serve as President of the United States. 

If America is as angry as I am, you will realize a backlash so stunning it will literally “rock you out of your panties”……… And preferably totally out of the United States Senate. 

The entire immigration bill is a farce…

Your action only confirms this really isn’t about America…..it is about self-serving politics……despicable at best. It has been said: “Never Argue with an Idiot….They’ll drag you down to their level!”

PRESIDENT ABRAHAM LINCOLN~“Congressmen who willfully take actions
during wartime that damage morale and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled or Hanged!!!

Assignment:  I am not for hangings, but why do you think so many senators voted against English as the official language of the USA? What do you think of Colonel Riley’s letter?  Are some of the leaders of our nation no longer proud of our American heritage?

One Response to “US Senators Vote Against English as America’s Official Language!”

  1. […] your child’s 2nd grade class is behind other schools because over half the class doesn’t speak English: Corn flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to press “one” to hear my bank talk to me in […]
