We Should Be Statesmen

What does it mean to be an American? Would you ask that of Canadians, Mexicans, Peruvians, or Argentinians? They are American also. North and South America are America too. We are the United States of America. Since we share the name American shouldn’t we be Statesmen? Linguistically I think it makes sense. Calling our citizenry Statesmen would be setting the bar high. I don’t think the politicians and talking heads would agree.


I usually try to be light-hearted with some word play. To be politic used to mean to be tactful, political correctness is less kindly viewed now so I’ll throw in a Non Sequitur.


Do you live in the past? I used to.
