Do you think English should be the national language of the United States?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on May 19, 2006
“Yes. I think it should be for a sense of commonality and community, so everyone is on the same page for all of the important stuff.”
“Considering that the majority of the population speaks English, it makes sense to make it the national language, but they should let people decide what language is primarily used where they live.”
“Yes, I do think so. We’ve always spoken it, and I think people who come here should have to learn it.”
“Yes, I do. Just because it’s been spoken here for as long as I can remember, and the majority of the people speak it.”
