USA is not America

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?

America

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.

Mrs. A I am not about to fall into your rabbit hole of Deceit. you have been shown many times over.facts, Links, names of books to prove how your stance and your narrative is incorrect. By Design as part of your argument you refuse to accept them and continue to ask the same questions all over again. The child is you and will be treated as such.

Bring them up again, I tend to forget a lot so can you enlighten me with your links, facts, and books that debunk what I have been saying regarding America being the name given to the Continent by German Cartographer Martin Waldseemuller and Matthias Ringmann and along with a map that people here seem to dismiss as fact, they wrote the "Introduction to Cosmography" and there Matthias Ringmann writes about how America was the right name for the new world and as other continents have ...

So far, if I remember, those facts you talk about are good facts to show that the British along with the United States Colonies took a name that was already used by the Continent. Sure, you can invent a name or maybe even better use the name of an already established continent how original! The Peace treaty, some of the letters of colonists, a map that was colored in many ways, the Guadalupe Hidalgo treaty, and I don't remember what else. But these do not tell how the United States came up ... Read More

Don't you see the irony?" Look, you are the one bashing Latin America and putting it down as if living in a 3rd world country is death. I have no problem if I have to live in Latin America, I'll move today if possible. I had lived in both Latin America and in the United States and they are ... Read More

I know of no Latin American country you can't go back to live today where you would be looked at harshly. I know of no country other than Cuba where the USA was involved that it caused people to flee and move to the USA. So, enlighten me? Or you can simply respond with nothing which will clearly show you just want to play being a victim

Who is saying that? I said I could live in Latin America. Did I say that I couldn't? Look, if you would do a search about interventions of the U.S. in Latin America, you will find which countries where the U.S. meddled with their politics and it will remind you of when those citizens came to the U.S. A small list I have in my head are: Cuba, you mentioned it, Haiti, Grenada, Panama, Chile, Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras, Etc. Here is a map with some info although not a full info: ... Read More

Nice try. In today's time Latin America does not want to evolve, so they teach the same thing they have been teaching for 100 years. It's still a Latin propaganda

Taking the name of the continent is not really to evolve or progress.

The only true Americans are the Native Americans whether if they are from North, Central, or South America... You all should be proud of where your ancestors came from.. As for myself, my DNA says I am 75% Native American so yes, I have nothing but Native Pride...

But, the fact is that there was only one name for a continent and it is America." It would be much more exact to say that a single name "America" was used for unknown lands, incompletely explored, that turned out to be two continents and not just one. Names were adapted to reflect new and better knowledge as further explorations were undertaken. ... Read More

Not all countries in the world have changed the original one continent named America. And plus now people can see that the name "America" is not originally owned by the United States of America, but it is a name given originally to the new world and thus the new continent. One continent originally and not two.

Anonymous said: "Yes 3rd World countries that have no significance to our modern times" Are you upset that I had said something that makes sense? When you get upset you seem to always come up with these types of insults about the 3rd world being less than what you think. Power and money is not always a good living. You should try to have a peaceful life in Latin America enjoying the simple and humble people who live there and you will find out that you might be wrong in categorizing ... Read More
