Betterthanyou(United States)says...

Website’s premise is ***** and I can prove it. You say the US is not America because there are many important other countries also part of the American continents and these citizens are easily offended that we have claimed ourselves the one and only. But in fact, we are simply more interesting, important and better in every God damn way. Point in case you make this ridiculous website and write ‘etc’ instead of all these ever so important counts also yearning to be called America. That how much better we are, that you and your life’s mission couldn’t even be bothered to google search the names of said countries. It appears even like you start to like pages with Argentina and gave up because you know that the US is America. And while Brazil would like to lie and tell the world they invented flight, the reality is we were walking on the ***** moon when these countries we’re trying to figure out basic cable television and that is why the US is America.


what a truly American arrogance. That's how easy I could tell that you are "American". I feel it broh.

the real American people.

The greatest arrogance, that's why the call themselves "Americans".

You want to take it to yourself and that's why America is what it is.

Your greatest fulfillments are priceless but your arrogance drains the vibes.

Remember, your country is part "of America"

The Real and True American(Canada)says...

FALSE - You are NOT more interesting, NOT more important and NOT more better in every way possible. You are NOT BETTER than the 35 countries of AMERICA.

This website is NOT RIDICULOUS even though they should have written all the 35 names of the countries located in America without saying 'etc.'! All 35 of them ARE American whether you like it or not! Calling the USA country just 'America' is incorrect! It is NOT America but it is only part of America!

The CONTINENT IS WAY BIGGER and Better than your United States country!

You can Disagree with me if you want but PLEASE DO NOT reply back to me if you don't have anything nice to say, Thanks!


Resorting to the global influence argument might as well be considered admitting that you DON'T have any other argument to back your claim. That's like Germany, China and Nigeria each calling themselves after the continent they inhabit, and practically everyone recognize how ridiculous that would be.


Err pardon the typos.


Brett: The point is the Name of the country is "The United States OF American...not "The United American States" or any other English along with its "grandfather" languages such as Latin, etc context is everything being that the linguistics of the languages themselves are very contextual...& the Context of saying " The United States OF America" clearly states in the context of the U.S belonging to America it is a part of America though it is NOT America itself.

Brett(United States)says...

Seriously?! There is only one country in all of the American continents with the name America in it. At the same time, no one refers to the continents in the western hemisphere collectively as just America.

Saris Maria(United States)says...

Where did you find the assertion That noone calls the continent America? Please can you explain? Because as far as I remember from Mexico down to the Patagonia Argentina, the continent is known and taught as America.

That has nothing to do with the usage of the name America.

BRIAN GRAHAM(United States)says...

Has anyone ever heard Mexico being referred to as the United Mexican States? Even Nieto said MEXICO would not pay for that ***** wall! Who is this Mexico he is referring to?

Jayden Hill(United States)says...

nieto literally means grandchild

Sensible panda(UK)says...

Mexico is not a name of a continent. America is. Therefore, using the name america to refer to one country only is misguided. Invent a name for the US that's more fortunate. I'm calling it Usonia and people who live in it Usonians.

Let the world know that USA should not be called America! America is one whole continent.
