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.

"The United States was founded on America it is not America."
"America is the name of the New World."
And before the Europeans who came here - later referred to as "Americans" - arrived, who called the Americas "America?"

Americans do not tell people from other countries what to call themselves, we are not that arrogant, we refer to ourselves as Americans and we live in the United States of America, America for short. End of story, its not rocket science. This website is becoming the butt of many jokes and it deserves that. We "Americans" will not change anything just because you don't like it so get over it, besides there are millions of Americans who disagree with you and there are only a few of ... Read More

Already mentioned is the obvious "why" United Statesians like to pretend that "America" is short for United States of America ( as opposed to the real short form name "United States"). You are just confirming it.

There is a contradiction when he criticizes the very facts that have been put forth by me and others and then he agrees with the same facts by saying that yes the name of the U.S. is not America, officially, but that is is just a common name used by the English speakers in the world. So, first he/she says that our facts don't help our cause but then he dives right into supporting what our facts have been saying all along. What I get here is that our facts have worked and what he is saying ... Read More

Anonymous said: " the beliefs you carry that harbor ill will to the USA.".......Again you assume this but you don't have a way to know this. Here is your own quote lecturing me when you yourself assume to many things from others like me; "stop assuming you know what others think. If they didn’t write it, don’t assume they think it."
Learn from your own words...LOL

To Anonymous: Have you ever seen me say "I hate the U.S."? NOPE, NEVER!!! because I would never right it, because I don't hate the U.S. in fact I love the U.S. so you can't assume that I will its ill when it is on the contrary.

Anonymous said: "Just as you hate the truth that a great majority of the people call USA America and Americans".....Here you go again, assuming that someone hates the truth about something...how do you even know that that is what this person feels? You assume too much and you do it to stir away from giving the facts that you said you have but you never give them.

Imagine a country in Africa called the United States of Africa. And that this US of Africa was the most powerful country in Africa. AND that they kept referring to themselves as "Africans", and to their country as "Africa".. Now imagine what that looks like from the perspective of folks not from the United States of Africa...

I'll check up on you guys in a few months. But I'm certain that this conversation will cycle back to the beginning as if completely void of facts.

As demonstrated in the following comment, it has already begun.

"Anonymous says...

Nonsense. We are Americans. All other are just wannabes."

Most United Statesians really do hate the truth.

Happy Holidays and New Years in advance
