Ah, yes, anyone can call themselves anything they want to. But do you call a Mexican, an "American'?<quoted text>
Look, Marxist Leninist, America is composed of 27 countries, 17 in South America, 7 in Central America, and 3 in North America. You know zilch about these things. You don't even know the origin of the word "America", or that "America" was first used by the Spanish to name what today today is South America. Any one of the 27 could simply call itself "America" based on your erroneous judgement. Imagine the confusion. United States of America, yes, perfect. Take "United States of" out of the picture and it just won't do. Sorry. Now run off to Google, poor Marxist stooge, and enlighten us.
They do not call the citizens of the United States of America, United Statesians, do they?
Names for United States citizens
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Different languages use different terms for citizens of the United States, who are known in English as Americans. All forms of English refer to these people as "Americans", derived from "The United States of America", but there is some linguistic ambiguity over this due to the other senses of the word American, which can also refer to people from the Americas in general. Other languages, including French, Japanese, Chinese, and Russian, use cognates of "American" to refer to people from the United States, but others, like Spanish and Italian, primarily use terms derived from "United States". There are various other local and colloquial names for Americans.
