The English language has evolved. In America, we do NOT speak the King's language as some think. American English is what American should speak, and should be made the OFFICIAL language of The United States of America.Geneva Bible (1560/1599)

A Changed and Changing Language
Like other languages, English has changed greatly, albeit imperceptibly, so that an English speaker of 1300 would not have understood the English of 500 nor the English of today. Changes of every sort have taken place concomitantly in the sounds (phonetics), in their distribution (phonemics), and in the grammar (morphology and syntax). The Changes in English Pronunciation table demonstrates how a few familiar words have altered over the span of a thousand years.
Make English our official language

One of the greatest things about the American Democracy is that citizens have the Constitutional right to vote for government representatives whom we believe will best represent our interests, our communities and our individual freedoms.
I can say with confidence that proficiency in the English language is the greatest asset an immigrant to the United States can receive. More than anything else, being able to communicate with fellow citizens opens the doors to equal opportunity. Furthermore, having a common language with which to communicate is one of the few issues that a strong majority of Americans stand behind.
Unfortunately, now more than ever, newcomers are facing increasing struggles as they adjust to life in the United States. If the language they speak is used by enough fellow Americans, they may have the ability receive native language translations when requesting government assistance.
Might be too much for your little brain to comprehend.
