Because it isn't. The USA is part of the North American Continent which stretches from Canada to the border between Panama and Colombia.


The United States is a republic, and is a part of the North American continent. There are other countries on that continent. South America is another continent that contains different countries. Look on a globe, and you will see what I mean.


The continental United States is NOT a continent. North America and South America are continents. Willful ignorance can be very expensive and very FATAL.

Because they are correct in that statement. Does your school really have no atlas or geographical globe for you to look at and see the truth??!! Oh, I suppose you live in one of those benighted states of the USA which does not teach you about the realities of the world.

It's not a continent, but it is a Jumbonation. That's my new word; Jumbonation.


Only globalists think in those terms. They See America as Putin's next island to over Throw and take over. To expand the power Of global totalitarianism. They want tyrants Dominating and oppressing everyone. No Freedom, no human rights, no privacy, no Legal representation, no justice, no property, No money. You become their slaves or cattle.
