Call the ‘Rio Grande’ the ‘Grand River’

As part of retaking the United States for Americans, we should stop referring to our southern border-river as the Rio Grande. Instead, we should use English and call it the Grand River.

There’s no reason to keep calling it by its Spanish name, except habit. And it’s a habit that should stop. Largely for the sake of our own dignity. But it will also give more proof to Mexico that we are finished tolerating their guff. Creating this verbal barrier will help to show we’re cutting them out of our consciousness. It will help to show them we regard them as just another nation, and not an important one at that.
