I think people from the US sgould officially be called "USians". Canadians are Americans, so are Mexicans, and all other people from central and South America. The U.S. is by no means special, so the are not entitled to the title of "Americans". What do you think?

What's your issue, exactly? The country's named after the continent. So?

The US was the first American country. In fact we were called Americans before the country existed.

I used to use the term "Unitedstatian" which is a direct "anglicization" of the term we use in spanish "Estadounidense".

I do agree that calling "American" people from the USA as though they were the only Americans is technically wrong.

Technically, even "Unitedstatian" would be appliable to people from both USA and Mexico - not only is Mexico, like the US, a federation of united states, Mexico's official name is "United Mexican States" (Yup, Mexico was blatantly forged after US, in fact Mexico is an excelent example of what would have happened to US if they had not been imperialist).

Good Idea

Yeah, that's a bit informal though.
