The Texas Republican Party "supports the immediate adoption of American English as the official language of Texas and of the United States of America."
Texas Democrats "believe that linguistic and cultural diversity present opportunities to develop a competitive edge in a growing global economy. The Texas Democratic Party believes that all Texans have a responsibility to be proficient in the English language but opposes the efforts of the extremist 'English-Only' movement to curb the use of other languages."
John WorldPeace believes in English First. English should be mandatory in every school because children will lose a competitive edge in the Texas economy if they are not fluent in English. In addition, John is committed to a global view and acknowledges that exposure to secondary languages promotes that global view.
