I wanted to go to Spain, Mexico, or Canada. Passport laws are making it difficult for me to get a passport for my son. Also, some countries have serious requirements for becoming a citizen. For example, I can't become a Canadian citizen until I finish my next degree - not that I blame them at all.

You don't speak for me. Actually I don't think you understand what "America" is. Canadians are Americans. Check out a map and you'll see that the residents of Canada are in North America. The residents of Brazil are in South America. America is a big place. Whether you are from Toronto, Chili, or Texas, you are all Americans.

I find no comfort in ethocentrism. Hatred and ignorance is part of the problem, not something that keeps me warm at night.

Yes we all know that the whole 2 continents are America, but when people are talking about the USA and they say 'Americans', it's usually accepted that they mean USAers. It happens on most threads on ATS and things outside of here, it's not ethnocentric it's just easier.

I think I speak for a few Canadians who think "Man I'm glad Americans don't know whats up here! The wide open, clean spaces and natural beauty is great, and hey no crowds eh!"


Winter's coming better fix the roof!
