Makes me think, do Hawaiians consider themselves Americans? As it relates to the U.K. and Europe, if it's to be determined solely by continental categorization, couldn't the same method be used to call Canadians Americans? Thanks for the quick rundown, it's an interesting subject. The reason I initially brought it up was because I was reading along with a debate some friends were having mostly related to how, in one of their words, continental Europe tends to prefer technocracy, bureaucracy and statism at the expense of individualism while the Anglosphere tends to prefer basically the opposite and this is why it's problematic to lump the English in with Europeans. I hadn't really thought about it much myself but it was interesting nonetheless.
