This is somewhat of a spin-off.  On another thread someone said 90% of posters are American (as in from the USA).  I wonder if this is true

Technically, anyone from any of the Americas (North, central and south) is American. No idea when or how it became that only people from the US are Americans. *shrugs*


Quoting kmugs:

Yeah - I am hoping no one from Canada, Mexico, etc clicks yes as they are "North American."  Odd but I have heard of it.  

See, I am from Canada, so I am from North America, but am not American.  American = from the USA for me.  I better clarify the OP.





Quoting mom2four1978:

I mostly identify as Texan. But since I live in North America I can identify as American as well.

Maine is purty.  I have heard that Canada allows dual citizenship but the USA does not.  Is this true?  Are you allowed our health care and stuff (I can share!) or do you have to live here and pay taxes for it?

Quoting KristenFowles:

Yup.  Born in America... I have dual citizenship with Canada though due to my grandfather being Canadian..  I live in Maine.

I was born in the United States of America, so I'd say yes. I identify myself as an American. What else would I call myself?

No, I'm from Pluto. When it got demoted they kicked us out. It was either Mars or Earth. I wish I had picked Mars.

Ya, it's clear you're Texan! Open up a map, honey. Which country do you reside in?
