If enough people boycotted such products, it would send a strong message to our politicians that we are PISSED OFF and don't mind hurting many of our nations companies to prove it.
The Spanish-speaking population is so large that to ignore them by not "catering" to them is akin to saying, "Let's not make money!!"

Capitalism

The only reason the US has all but become a dual language nation (of spanish and English) is because during the planning stages of their duplicity in this invasion, corporate America had the foresight to devise the plan of gradually instituting Spanish into the customer service prompts of American Businesses. They had already decided that the easiest and most accessible majority of illiterate peasants to target would be the 3rd grade illiterates from south of the border who would come by the millions and accept any wage they offered. Even the lowest American wage is far better than what they could ever imagine in Mexico.

To claim spanish is being crammed down our throats for any other reason is delusional at best.
I really doubt Spanish is being "crammed down" your throat. For all practical purposes, no non-Spanish speaker has to learn Spanish to get by in this country, not even in Miami! I know plenty of people who live in Miami who do not speak Spanish, and they get by just fine at the grocery store, gas station, mall, etc. No one is holding a gun to your head and forcing you to learn Spanish; in fact, most Spanish-speaking immigrants seem pretty eager to learn ENGLISH to me. Just because they speak Spanish at home doesn't mean that they don't attempt to speak and learn English outside of the home.

But that doesn't make any sense because doesn't Mexican --> pro illegal --> anti-American --> refuses to speak English (and chooses to speak Spanish instead)? You know, AMC, you're ruining our plan to take over America and turn it into a third world nation!

There goes Aztlan. How I'm going to force Spanish on people when I barely have a handle on it myself?
