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.

Nobody said anything about the Americas ceasing to exist.

Just because U.S. people say that their country is America does not mean that the continent of Amrica has ceased to exists and not its what the U.S. says, no way there is a world outthere you know? and with different views and with historical facts. Ameria is the continent.

Yea and the fish thought that his fish tank was the whole world but when he was released to the open ocean he saw that there was much more than his little knowledge, America is a continent to the world, open your eyes, travel outside of the bubble that is the U.S.

Venezuela does not use the continent's name as if were its own.

"So, respect all those who are not agree with you and correct your stupid misuse of the name America, beacuse we sustain that America is not a Country, but the name for a Continent" Then you should respect all those who do not agree with you and correct your stupid misuse of the name America as a Continent, beacuse we sustain that America is not a Continent, but the name for a Country who's full name is the United States of America. I don't see you getting mad when people refer to the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela as just Venezuela so don't get mad when people refer to the United States of America as just America. America = Country.

24th Oct, 9:03 PM : So, Did you take your laxative brain? Don't be Pinky ok? Think!!! The reason why your country is The United States OF AMERICA is that!! you are pointing on that by yourself!!!! it is OF AMERICA, because it was the first Country founded in "AMERICA" the New World!!, the Continent!!! who already existing 269 years before (since 1507). Just for that reason!!!, but this doesn't mean that the name is for a country!!! and that, never will make sense North AMERICA (Northern of AMERICA). and South America (Southern of AMERICA) got their names for that reason!!. BOTH belongs to the whole, the domain name!!! AMERICA!!! as the whole (shake your head pinky). Because of it was the first country to gain independence in the new world (in AMERICA) that never granted the right to own the name for your country, that i just an stupid and childish vernacular excuse created for a convenience to pretend to stole the name for you and your culture, but nothing valid for what History and cartography proves officially!!. Makeup with childish arguments to distort what originally AMERICA means are pathetic, and lack of foundations. AMERICA IS NOT A COUNTRY pinky!!!! It was, and it is the name given for the new world along before your country!! History never is out of fashion and nobody has the right to distort, makeup or change for convenience. So, respect all those who are not agree with you and correct your stupid misuse of the name America, beacuse we sustain that America is not a Country, but the name for a Continent sustain that based in the time line of history and what cartography proves, but you just have your vernacular belief, and your makeup and childish excuses. Learn!!! []

North America and South America are two continents. There are seven continents in the world. USA is America. It was the first country to gain independence in the New World at a time when other land belonged to Britain, France, Spain and Portugal.
