Voice: More Americans than those just in the U.S.

January 02, 2002

Walter Tylenda, you are such a child. You are so naive. You remind me of a freshman high school student by your beliefs.

What is an American? If you are referring to a U.S. citizen, then I ask you what is a U.S. citizen? Are they the ones from the Southeast. They act, eat, sing, dance, speak, believe differently from us in the Southwest. The Northeast is very different from the Southeast and both are different from us. The Northwest is also different from the Northeast and Southeast but closer to us.

I also notice that our nation has been changing from agressive to more complacent. Do we pattern ourselves to the oldies or the goodies?

Go out and meet more people and become realistic and mature.

By the way, I looked through maps and our nation's emblems and nowhere did I see our nation as America. On the maps it's the United States. In the nation's emblems and other maps, it's the United States of America.

The maps show the whole western hemisphere as America. Most countries in the world except the U.S, refer to all countries in the western hemisphere as Americans. Don't be confusing.
