America is a continent. Lol I hate to play to stereotypes, but that was a very dumb "American" thing to say. I am "American", btw
I don't know where you're from, but here in Nebraska, it's AMERICA.
Then why does your passport say "US Citizen" rather than "American" for your nationality?
Just because people say it doesn't mean it's correct.
Australia all the way. ;) However, countries worth is seen differently in everyones eyes. It's all about pride.
How can you possibly judge what is the best country?
In my total outrage at the OP I rushed and didn't specify. I'm not just making this up to cover up my brain-slip ;)
What do you call people from the United States of America?
Thats right, American
Therefore, at some point it was deemed appropriate to call the US America
The United States of America, is indeed a country.
"America" however is not, and it shows something about the national ego, no other country in North or South America cares to assume the name of both continents
We don't care. Duh. It's America.
I'm confused how shortening the name of a country has anything to do with an ego
Americans speak English. Therefore they're from England? You could technically say that Mexico is a set of united states of America, but I'm just getting technical. No need to get pissed off though, Anonymous. That doesn't help the stereotype
Stereotypes don't mean anything. By the way, you have too many grammatical errors in your comment to call your remark technical.
(Sierra =)): Ooooh wow, I forgot a full stop. I think if you look through all my comments and posts you will find very few mistakes. Anyway, that's just a typo.
Plus, most stereotypes stem from truth.
British have bad teeth. Well at least in the past they didn't put as much emphasis on the looks of their teeth.
People from the USA are fat. The USA has the largest percentage of obese people.
Ta da. Not that hard to understand.
We're one of the best countries but not possibly the best. For example, see BUSH PRESIDENCY
HEEELLLLL TO THE YEAHHHH!!!!! USA!!!USA!!!USA!!!USA!!!USA!!!USA!!!
Sigh. America is not a country
Care to explain?
Ha sorry Chromana. America isnt even just a continent, its two continents!
Whatever you knew what i meant and im still right btw OF ALL TIME!
Well, what are your criteria for judging "America" to be the best country Burt? GDP, yes USA are highest, but GDP per Populace, even Lichtenstein is above USA
annybody who didnt like this post is racist
@29974 (Anonymous): And arrogant American people like you are the reason America is not the greatest country.
