Multicultural madness

Dear Editor:

When voters go to the polls on Nov. 5, they'll face large ballots printed in tiny six-point type. One reason: a requirement that ballots be printed in six languages, including Bengali.

This is multicultural madness. Queens residents speak and read more than 80 languages, must

our ballots include all of them? What's next? Icelandic, Irdu, Farsi, Pashtun and Swahili? Let's end this nonsense. We need just one language for voting: English.

Only U.S. citizens are permitted to vote, according to the Constitution. Most natural-born citizens learn

English as soon as they start talking. They absorb it from family, friends and later in school. Immigrants must display English language proficiency to become naturalized citizens. People who don't speak or read English are most likely not U.S. citizens.

Multiculturalism is a euphemism for "I refuse to learn English." If you feel that way, you forfeit your right to vote.
