Meaning of being offended

Jan 3rd 2013 new

This topic kinda amused me, yet baffled or misunderstood me because I don't understand. boggled

Difficulty trying to explain the following and maybe you can clarify since I have a lack of expertise or knowledge: scratchchin

1. We are Americans? Literally is that correct! Are Canadians, Mexican, Brazilians, are American? Either we have a lack of knowledge of geography trying to explain that, all of us are American? North, Central and South America, thus we are Americans! We are one by birth to proclaim and be proud that we are Americans?

2. Are we offended to recite the Pledge of Allegiance ~ not only as proud United States but under the God who brought liberty from persecussion?

3. We don't have to acknowledge or hear anymore that we are United States citizens it seems by birth or naturalization?

4. We don't need to speak or be educated in any language? It is only text or appreviated msg, or pick one or two or three?

5. We don't need to give or sacrifice our lives, we are a socialist/democrat country that is depending on the government for all our needs?

6. We don't need to vote because maybe we are too busy or lack of responsibility?

7.We voluntary end the middle class, we keep the same politicians who like to pass taxes anyways and same old rethoric?

Genie, #1 has always been a pet peeve of mine. We and our Canadian neighbors are North Americans, Guatemalans are Central Americans, Peruvians and Venezuelans are South Americans. Unfortunately there is no comfortable way to refer to ourselves other than Americans. I just feel it is a bit obnoxious for us to do so. A citizen of Mexico is a Mexican, A citizen of the United States- A United Statesian? There has to be a better solution.
