Los Americanos

Who cares? Apparently, you do since you "cared" enough to respond. There's a big difference between telling someone that you're from the United States (I say Chicago, Los Estados Unidos in Mexico), and identifying as an "American" when discussing nationality.

I'm retired U.S. Army and I've traveled the world. I'm proud to be American, regardless of who currently occupies the White House. You keep doing you and I will do the same. Cheers.

Yes, I cared because to me the truth matters. I know a lot of folks consider me a dinosaur for having principles and living by them. Call yourself anything you want. Yuu can be Capt. Kirk of the Star Ship Enterprise for all I care. But the rest of the people in America will continue to consider your use of America to refer to your U.S. nationality or country name as incorrect. If you didn't know how the rest of the Americans felt then now you do. People from Tierra del Fuego to the Northern Territories have been calling themselves Americans since hundreds of years before the United States ever existed. This isn't about ME or YOU.

Thank you for your service. I did my bit.
