Section 3 of this bill is a massive violation of political free speech.  I officially move for Section 3 to be removed from this bill.

I don't feel that it is the right of the government to interfere with political parties' platform writing commissions.

I will vote against this bill unless Section 3 is removed.

I oppose this. The imperial system is the symbol of the fight against internationalism. I also oppose this adding of items to bills to make them more passable.

I would like to echo Senator Bono's sentiments.  Adopting the metric system is an unwarranted sacrifice of our national sovereignty.  Here in the United States we use our own system of weights and measures and I see no need to change that at this time.  I also share Senator Bono's general apprehension regarding growing internationalism.   I am a free trader.  I am not afraid of cooperating with other nations to achieve economic growth, but I will resist any measure that would take away any part of American culture and replace it with any kind of international standard.

This addition to the Miscellany Act has further solidified my vote.  I will vote against this bill.  If it passes, I will urge President PBrunsel to exercise his veto power.

Shame on you nay voters.  You won't do one simple thing to try to join the international community.  You one get rid of one archaic nonsensical aspect of our country and switch to a sensible system that the rest of the world uses.

International community?  You must be joking.  What international community?  And why should we have to sacrifice some of our cultural uniqueness just so we can fit in with this nonexistent 'international community?'  Shame on you for your willingness to sacrifice national sovereignty.

Besides, the main reason I voted against this bill was because of the restrictions placed on political parties and platform writing.  This is a serious infringement of free speech rights.

Nay.

I already explained my position on the free speech violations contained in this bill earlier in this thread.
