    No we're not saying that we are just calling our country america there is no hidden meaning or message or anything its just a nice word that rolls off the tongue

    But what about America? and America? there is also America? Not everyone can be America, specially because naming yourself as a entire continent holds such connotations.

    Clock: I am a 15 year old, white female living in the United States. I am entitled to my own opinions and am open to hearing yours, but that doesn't mean I will change mine. Thank you for your insight. I'm sorry if my love of my country offended you in any way. I only meant to state my own views, not to try and persuade you to believe in them.
