Indeed, U.S.A. is not America!

America is the name of a whole continent. United States of America means that the United States belongs to America and NOT that America belongs to the United States. So, next time you want to refer to The United States of America, you can do it as U.S. or the States or whatever you want but not as only America. Gotcha?

How should I use the term America then?

Here we will show you some wrong and correct uses of the term America:

  • This is how we do it in America.
  • This is how we do it in the States.
  • America is my country and I love it.
  • The United States is my country and I love it.
  • America lost the Vietnam war.
  • U.S.A. lost the Vietnam war.
  • Here in America we love Mc Donald's.
  • Here in the U.S. we love Mc Donald's.

Please, note that this page in not about demonyms (gentilics) but about the way to call a country.

All of the sudden yes they are Americans too yes because the continent is America and all of those who were found already here in these lands of the new world althought called indians were the very first Americans once the name stuck and was accepted.

As far as who came over to America, those were mostly the Europeans cause Americans live already in America the continent so they are not crossing over they are just living in the continent of America even if they are south of it north of it or middle of it.

Gringos can have the map of Waldseemuller where the word America is written right where Brazil is today and still say that their country is "America". This is just an example of how they need to be educated from without cause from within their land they are getting dumbed out.

For these gringos morons, the evidence of an authentic cartographic document proving the real origin of the name AMERICA as the denomination or name for the new world as a NEW CONTINENT cannot mean what means for all those who respect what has been writen by history, this is the best evidence that they are technically stupid, and all of them with a lack of common sense to sustain their pathetic arguments. The "makeup" to splitting of America in two continents like if they were from two different origins cannot distort what is evident, because North AMERICA (the Northern of America), and South AMERICA (the southern of America) both got their name from AMERICA as the domain name, as the whole, and a authentic cartographic document proves that AMERICA, already existed 3 centuries before any country on AMERICA. That's official, and technically correct argument, and valid. All the rest of childish explanations, is just a matter of a vernacular, the misuse and pretension to own a name that never belonged to them neither by denomination of origin, nor by what History proves. History is not a matter of fashion, and never is out of fashion. []
