Would you like help to stop accidental drug overdosing in America? Would you like to help the United States Economy go up from ease of trade relations from other countries? Would you like to make ease of us from our Children by only having to learn 1 measurement system instead of the 2 that most common core math systems are using? If you have answered yes to at least one of these questions, you should support the metric system coming into place in the United States of America. Yes, President Richard Nixon did this voluntarily, but the world has changed. Like I said earlier, Most Students in the United States are using both the Imperial and Metric Systems in school when they learn about measurement, so this change would be easier for most Americans. Yes, this may cost a lot of money, but in about 25 years, that number may be doubled or even tripled because of the ease of trade in the United States, since countries would not have to convert 12 liters of alcohol into Gallons, or Doctors would not have to prescribe patients incorrect doses of medicine due to incorrect convertions of systems. I know what some of you may be thinking, “Well what I do not want to learn this new system?”. The thing is that you don’t have to. Many countries, including Belize use the Imperial System in many versions of measurement, even though they technically use the Metric System. Now, if you disagree with this or want to ask something, comment down below. Anyway, thank you for reading, and have a great rest of your day!
