Being from Miami, I have seen the fights for making Spanish the primary language of this city. Being non-Hispanic, but having nothing against the language, I still thought it wrong for the people of another country to come to America and try to make me learn the language of the country they left for one reason or another. Having said this, I don't recall ever seeing any discussions about making money the primary language of the United States of America. While, I might admit to being complacent over the years, as far as my political activism went, I do believe that I would have remembered debates in which the Republicans claimed that money held more value than the beliefs, opinions and desires of a nation's people. It seems to me that I would have accidental flipped by CSPAN and seen some congressman holding up a giant poster of a dollar bill, proclaiming that George Washington and the founding fathers were our original spokesmen and should continue to be such. . . I think I would have remembered that, but since I don't seem to recall this detail at all, I can only assume that it never happened. And since it never happened, I must ask the following question? Do we (Americans) now worship at the alter of the all mighty, albeit less so these days, dollar. Are we those Israelites that Charleston Heston, I mean Moses, returned to find worshiping the cremation of care, I mean the Golden Calf? Is that the direction we want to take America into? Even Alan Greenspan repented, acknowledging that his Ayn Rand Collectivisim approach to the world was both wrong and detrimental to the future of this nation. Why can't the rest of them see the folly in allowing money to do our talking.
