(Click in the Picture)
Well well well. I was making my 2-clicker thing, but I saw this Article, so I decided to make a Response
First of All, I think that i like the proposed name of the Alliance, but unfortunate by ACTA and SOPA things I can't get that name.
Everything was perfect, until I saw this sentence that make me to brood my Eyes and make me feel like the Greeks feel by some name:
Also go make more America by colonizing Mexico.
First of all, let's try to understand this sentence.
First of all (Geography classes) America is a continent and Mexico is part of it. so conquering Mexico will not make more America, If you want more America, conquer China, or France.
Next, You are Americans? yes, but is for the same reason that French and Germans are Europeans.
Also in your history, you call the Native People, Native Americans, and I think that is the same with the native people from other countries, excluding Canada, that are called first nations people.
One more prove that America is a continent?
America can be divided in 3 ways, by 2 or 3 sections:
North America Continent, and South American Continent.
North America (From Canada, Alaska and Greenland to Oaxaca and Veracruz, in Mexico) Central America and the Caribbean (From what in Erepublik is called South-east of Mexico to what is Today Panama and all this island in the east) and South America.
Anglo-america or North America (Canada and USA)
Latin America (The Rest)
here we have some problems
First, in Latin America, there are some not Latin Language countries, like Guyana, many Caribbean Countries, Surinam and some Island that are part of the Netherlands. we also can Include Quebec as an Latin America Region because they speak French. and maybe New Mexico too, as the only State un the USA where Spanish is allowed. (That means that no one can force you to speak English if you Speak Spanish)
Some people from USA call the people from Latin American countries as Hispanic people. but in this case, then these region it should be called Hispanic America. and Brasil, Portuguese America. Suriname, and the Netherlands Antilles (Now part of the Kingdom of Holland) as Dutch America, and Haiti, French Guyana, and Quebec as the French (of Frankish) America.
In another case, some People from USA say that Mexico is a Central American Country by the landmass. but if Mexico is Central America, then Texas too because most of the landmass is more to the south that a city called Tijuana
Mexico is like Turkey, Some of their land is in Central America, but most of their land is in North America.
Belize as a Bilingual or Trilingual Country (They speak Spanish, English and Mayan) they are culturally part of Anglo America and Latin America
The correct term for the USA People is Unitedstatians(A word created from the Spanish word Estadounidenses), Yankees, Gringos (a nickname that we give to them with love) or the most close thing to American for US People, Usamerican or US-American.
Many people from the USA say that they are called Americans because Mexicans are called Mexicans and the country is officially Called United Mexican States.
First, Mexicans are called by that not because of that, we from long time ago are called Mexicans or newspaniard, by the name of the Colony (Neo-español). Mexico is a word from Nahuatl that means Center of the Moon.
Name of Mexico:
Mēxihco was the Nahuatl term for the heartland of the Aztec Empire, namely, the Valley of Mexico, and its people, the Mexica, and surrounding territories which became the future State of Mexico as a division of New Spain prior to independence (compare Latium)
The suffix -co is the Nahuatl locative, making the word a place name. Beyond that, the etymology is uncertain. It has been suggested that it is derived from Mextli or Mēxihtli, a secret name for the god of war and patron of the Aztecs, Huitzilopochtli, in which case Mēxihco means "Place where Huitzilopochtli lives". Another hypothesis suggests that Mēxihco derives from a portmanteau of the Nahuatl words for "moon" (mētztli) and navel (xīctli). This meaning ("Place at the Center of the Moon") might then refer to Tenochtitlan's position in the middle of Lake Texcoco. The system of interconnected lakes, of which Texcoco formed the center, had the form of a rabbit, which the Mesoamericans pareidolically associated with the moon. Still another hypothesis suggests that it is derived from Mēctli, the goddess of maguey.
The official name of the country has changed as the form of government has changed. On two occasions (1821–1823 and 1863–1867), the country was known as Imperio Mexicano (Mexican Empire). All three federal constitutions (1824, 1857 and 1917, the current constitution) used the name Estados Unidos Mexicanos or the variants Estados Unidos mexicanos and Estados-Unidos Mexicanos, all of which have been translated as "United Mexican States". The term República Mexicana, "Mexican Republic" was used in the 1836 Constitutional Laws.
Before to be called as United Mexican States. the country was called as The First Mexican Empire. a Real Empire, from California to Costa Rica. It Reclaimed some lands that was part of New Spain like Florida, Cuba, or Philippines, but the Empire didn't get a established government and then fall. So this means that the Name "United States" have nothing to do with Mexico or Mexican
Second (talking about the sentence)
Ignoring all what I say, conquering Mexico will not make more "America".
This is a part of a phase by Alejandro Jodorowsky (Is from Chile, not to Poland, in our Latin American countries, many intellectual People have Polish surnames)
"When the countries are demolish and fall (in this case Mexico in Game) the only thing that it have is its culture, this is why it is very important. A country without culture is going to disappear."
Ok, well, well, well. if the US-People will make "More America" conquering Mexico, this will never happen
First of All, we doesn't like to assimilate into the US-American Culture just after that you take some land using overaggressive force against us and also we know what you do to the Mexicans there. If the people in Mexico doesn't obey the Government, what do you believe that this will make us to obey you?
Also, after of the conquer, you will never force us to stop speaking Spanish, we love that Language even so much more that your poor version in English, Another languages that we like are French, Japanese, and Maybe German and Italian if we will learn English, it will be the Elegant British English from Europe. Seriously, if we try to copy your English, our English will be similar to Peña Nieto's English:
Peña Nieto's Engish
You may say that we eat your food, but your food is more used as a "fast food" option. We prefer to eat our own Food. You may say that we see your TV Programs or even the Super-bowl, this may be true but not by this, means that we are going to stop to be Mexicans.(Just for make you some Reference, we support mainly 2 teams, Cowboys and Steelers, so the other teams will not have "more fans") We also Prefer other Sports like the Real Football, and if there is not Mexico, we can support another teams (and we actually do it). This teams are Germany, Spain, and Brazil.
If you think that we are going to became "Capitalist and Materialist", this is very easy think to do. And because the Import Taxes will disappear will be so much easy. An Maybe you are going to do a good think for us in conquering us making that the Politicians Loses so much Power.
We are going to became Richer and all you poorer. And another thing
🙂most of the young generation is Leftist, so, do you know what I mean.
So maybe the real sentence is not "Also go make more America by colonizing Mexico" the real sentence is "Also go make more Mexico in our borders by colonizing Mexico" because, by History, we are the Dominant Culture
🙂we could take your culture and express it in out lives, but this will not change your country's culture like in yours yours
🙂One Example, Just see some music lyrics and you will find some Spanish Expression. you also get some Mexican in Also, the so called Burritos, and some other Gas Station Food are another good Example, (Actually burritos are more like Tex-Mex food, in Mexico I didn't find it until I found them in OXXO)
Have a nice day
