    Well, the rest of the world are starting to realize that the US elections are more about presentation rather than substance. Marketing of a brand that aims to get the most attention and sales...A pageantry or a reality show.

    A pageantry or a reality show.

    Both actually if you think about it.

    USA people actually use flipping a coin is the best way to make a decision instead of the threesome way the Japanese use. Toss the raw burger on the grill, flip it the air. If it lands the same way(raw side up) as it started, Clinton wins. If it lands with the raw side (symptomatic of the culture) Trump wins. After 1000 burger flips. report the facts here. USA people believe in very small sampling subjects.

    Iowan: With all due respect, America is not electing a new president on November 8th ... the Office of President of America (POA) does not exist. On the other end, the Office of President of the United States of America (POTUS) does. America is the name of the entire continent divided in Notth America (Canada, United States of America, Mexico), Central America (Guatemala, etc.), South America (Colombia, etc.) And the Caribbean (Cuba, etc.).

    America is the name of the entire continent divided in Notth America (Canada, United States of America, Mexico), Central America (Guatemala, etc.), South America (Colombia, etc.) And the Caribbean (Cuba, etc.).

    But not really. Colloquially pretty much the entire world is referring to the USA when they say America. Try telling a Canadian they are American, and I'll grab the popcorn while I watch their response to you.

    By a similar logic to what you've given, Japan wouldn't exist, since the name of the country is actually Nippon or Nihon.

    But the fact is everyone calls it Japan, same as everyone calls America, America.
