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.

21st Dec, 11:16 AM Communism is not a government despite what you have been told. And the Chilean economics system was socialist, not communist. And Democratic system was in place. It is not the right of your tyrannical government to impose its economic ideology on any sovereign country, nor for it to overthrow the will of the people to democratically elected leaders. Whether here in the continent of America, or any where else. Just at isn't the right of any foreign nation to impose their form of government, nor economic system, nor over throw democratically elected leaders and trample on the will of the people of the United States. The United States is imperialist country. A nation of tyrants. Just like [Nazi] Germany, just like the Muslim Jihadists

So? it's a word. Word's aren't set in stone. Language changes.

America did back pinochet, while the soviet union backed the chilean government. At that point the enemy of your enemy had to be your friend. And we couldn't risk another communist country in the America's after Cuba. So yes it was wrong, but sorta understandable.

Please, tell me when the U.S. overthrew democracies and hand picked dictators in their place that would subordinate the individual countries interest to that of the United States. Please tell me when that happened.

21st Dec, 11:03 AM
21st Dec, 11:01 AM you really need to feed your education with facts, not propaganda. And again America is a continent.
