Is America a country?

For the vast majority of Americans, America is a continent and not a country, discounting the United states, in general Americans do not recognize  «America» as a country, USA is simply another country in the American continent. For most americans the United States has kidnapped the name of the continent.

The official name of E.U. is: United States of America, do not put all that name only use «America», like Mexicans do, whose official name is the United Mexican States, which only use Mexico to shorten the official name of the country, similar case of the previously called the United States of Venezuela, which is now the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, which only use Venezuela, to shorten the official name of its country

America is a continent not a country.

Don’t belive it?, well, simply  take a diccionary a look for the word America , you’ll be able to see the definition of  Americanad the result will be that it is a continent.
When Columbus discovered America, he landed in Cuba, not on the continental US.
It’s fair to say that any person born is US is american, but so is anybody who is born in the american continent. When we say “America” and mean the US, we’re claiming incorrect geography. It would be like the Germans calling themselves “Europe” or the Japanese claiming exclusivity to “Asia.
Many of our patriotic songs, such as «God Bless America,» and «America the Beautiful» refer to the United States  and not to North, Central or South America.  In my experience, people from anywhere on this continent other than the U.S.A. refer to themselves as Colombian, Canadian, Mexican, Chilean, Puerto Rican, etc. although all of them are Americans.
The name of the country refers to those states that are located in the american continent, with time the citizens of those states called themselves americans, wich is correct, so can any person born in the american contienent.

The definition of this content is:
It is the second largest land mass on the planet, with an area of 42,262,142 km2.

Until the last decades of the twentieth century, the theory of late bending predominated, believing that the human being arrived on this continent about twelve or fourteen thousand years ago, through the Bering Strait. However, more recent research supports a much earlier early settlement, and other alternative routes to Beringia.

Currently, it has a population of about 900 million inhabitants. Its great extension makes it have all types of climates.

The main countries that make up the continent, Mexico, the United States and Canada, are oil producers.

Due to the great cultural differences, we have a division of the continent in North America, Central America and South America.

  1. El nombre AMERICA fue dado al CONTINENTE descubierto por los españoles en honor al navegante explorador italiano nacionalizado español AMERICO VESPUCIO porque fue uno de los primeros en darse cuenta que este era un nuevo CONTINENTE y no la India como creyó erróneamente Cristóbal Colón por eso se llamó a nuestro CONTINENTE AMERICA en su honor porque nuestro CONTINENTE se llama AMERICA y no por ejemplo Americo ya que nombre fue dado en honor a AMERICO VESPUCIO porque los otros CONTINENTES tenían nombres en FEMENINO EUROPA ASÍA ÁFRICA por eso también se decidió llamar a nuestro CONTINENTE AMERICA en FEMENINO y no por ejemplo Americo el nombre AMERICA fue dado al CONTINENTE descubierto por los españoles en honor al navegante explorador italiano nacionalizado español AMERICO VESPUCIO en el AÑO 1507 en esa época solo habían en el CONTINENTE colonias españolas y portuguesas los británicos llegaron al CONTINENTE recién en el AÑO 1607 100 años después de dado el nombre al CONTINENTE
    EEUU es un país que literal mente no tiene nombre por lo tanto eso tampoco les permite tener un gentilicio propio único que los identifique su «nombre» solo indica su posición geográfica donde se encuentran situados en un CONTINENTE llamado AMERICA «estados unidos DE america» que serían los estados unidos de las colonias británicas en AMERICA las 13 colonias británicas en AMERICA haciendo referencia al CONTINENTE donde se encuentran situados llamado AMERICA caso parecido el nombre del país SUDÁFRICA que su nombre sólo indica su posición geográfica donde se encuentran situados al SUR de un CONTINENTE llamado ÁFRICA pero como las ratas de EEUU están acostumbrados a querer apropiarse de lo que no les pertenece y como su país literalmente NO TIENE NOMBRE los muy ignorantes idiotas sin vergüenzas ladrones estafadores se empezaron a creer los únicos «american» del mundo y lo más estúpido y ridículo del caso empezaron a considerar sólo «america» a su país y así viven en su mundito irreal falsificado y de fantasía pobre gente estúpida ignorante dan lástima

  2. To say America for an American is to abbreviate «The United States of America» ​​which is a VERY INFORMAL abbreviation since the official one is «United States», this name is a sentence where the word America is included and because it is a sentence it brings problems in its use.
    As for the demonym, its origin does not come from the name of the country but from the fact that the colonists of the United Kingdom on the continent of America were called «British Americans» and when the conflict for independence begins, the «British» is suppressed and only the «American» remains.
    I think that a good variant that they could use would be to add the U and S to the «American», that is, «US Americans».
    But I think that if there is no other option but to use things as they are, it seems important to me that if when we go to an English-speaking country we have to say American to refer to someone from the United States of America, we should demand that they not translate as «americano» that demonym, because that word means «someone from any country in the Americas» («The Americas» is the equivalent of saying America in Spanish) in the Spanish language, but «American» is translated «estadounidense» in our language.

  3. and the example of Mexico is not very good, Mexicans hate that «official» name, you will NEVER NEVER hear one of them call his country, Estados Unidos Mexicanos (United Mexican States), the only place where that name appears is in its constitutional text (also it appears in some versions of its national coat of arms) that apparently did not respect (last reformed in 1917) the strong tradition of calling its nation «Mexico» or «Republic of Mexico».
