AMERICAN ENGLISH vs BRITISH ENGLISH:

I am not unaware of the history of the English language, but I do
strongly feel that the modern American dialect of the English language
is the most efficient. Of course, it took root in England...as did the
Spanish language in the Castilian section of Spain. But not unlike
Spanish, the modern progression English language is not in England,
but in the United States of America.

American English sets the world standard for the modern English
language. The spelling system that evolved in America is more
attractive to new learners of the language, as well as more efficient
and consistent.

To the Brits, Australians, Canadians, New Zealanders, Irishmen, and
persons of other second-rate countries that use the old spelling and
pronunciation system AKA "British English"....join the 21st century
and start to spell and pronounce English like we do here in the GREAT
OLD USA! AMERICAN POWER!
