I'm sure that when you refer to your passport you refer to it as a US passport, not an American passport, right?

So why throw it away, you have a US passport, even if America was tacked on.
So why would I have a US Passport if we're all just Americans??

Teddy they (messiah followers) and their messiah want to stir unrest among the citizens of which the dictator has brought about since DAY ONE. The division he has created keeps him up there because all these meek lambs will jump at the chance to vote for him for the handouts, food stamps, phones, section 8 housing, etc. These followers will commit fraud, voting more than once as in Florida to keep him up there.....they don't want the other party to come along and give them jobs HECK NO they'd rather get it all without lifting a finger to work and then again who is gonna hire some of these low lifes? school dropouts, angry black & hispanic youths that no one wants to hire because they're gang affiliated. These are the American youth of tomorrow...useless, unmotivated, careerless and angry at the whole world. Why? blacks angry because they're black and hispanics angry because they're who they are...I guess. Having ruined their lives because they got started out ON THE WRONG FOOT.....so anger, fighting, stealing is what they resort to. Parents not teaching them morals from the start, loving them, showing them respect, AND ABOVE ALL TEACHING THEM THAT HARD WORK WILL MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE....NOT THE HANDOUTS. We have a problem in our country no matter who runs it.

Different countries. Haven't you gotten anything.

America is not a country, it's this huge land-mass we call the Western Hemisphere.

We're all Americans by virtue of being from this hemisphere.

And this hemisphere has many countries. Don't you understand anything?
The United States is in the Northern Hemisphere. No wonder you're so confused!

It is a country where people of diverse cultures live together peacefully.

You're making his point. It's the United States in the Northern Hemisphere which is called (America). Thus the complete name of United States (of) America.

When the Guess who, a Canadian band, made that song 'American Woman', they were referring to a woman from the US. That's all the proof anyone should need. "American woman's gonna blow your mind". Can I get an Amen on that? The point is, names don't really matter. It doesn't matter if you call an illegal alien an undocumented immigrant. Everyone still knows what you are talking about.

I'm perfectly aware that US citizens have been raised to believe they live in America and that they are Americans. This is absolutely true of course, they do live in America (the New World) and they are Americans (from the New World.) But they selfishly think it's only them (those from the US.)
Now, to admit that they've been wrong all this time, well, that's a hard pill to swallow. So they will dodge the topic at every moment.
Does that mean Obama is President of all the "New World"?

Its just another problem with the liberal thought process.

They believe if they change the definition of something it somehow changes the reality.

One more question for you Americanos, explain the name Latin AMERICA. Well, explain that. Why is everything south of the US border called Latin AMERICA?
Look, we get what you are saying but as long as one doesn't add North or South before the word American, one knows it (American) refers to a citizen of the USA. United Statesian would sound rather clumsy.

Well Znonii I'm old school and I understand what you are saying and although I had never thought about it that way, you are correct. Even if you look at the name of our Country it says that we are the United States ..... of .....America. Which all the other Countries could add that last part to what they call themselves.
