We get to go.
We got to go.
Are both correct? Do they mean the same?
We get to go. = We (will)(can) go.
We get to go to the annual meeting in Florida next week.
We got to go. = We went.
We got to go to the annual meeting in Florida last week.
Related to this, I much prefer 'We have to go.' when that is what you mean. Saying "We got to go." in that circumstance demonstrates a low class of English, in my opinion. (not that I think that people will stop saying 'got to'.
Sorry, I just noticed the previous answers.
