Is English the “Right” Langauge?

The federal government made English the official language of the US, and now Oklahoma wants to. This time it’s to rid themselfs of the American Indian tongue

The founders of this country deliberately made no language official, because they knew America was a melting pot. During that same time there was debate on what should the official one be, some said French, others said Spanish, but somewhere along the route English became defacto.

It’s unfortunate that the government wants everything to be the same. You know, we all eat the same food, watch the same tv, where the same clothes, and now they want us all to speak the same. The next thing governments will institute is what dialect of English is official.
