You sound like a Mexican "immigrant rights" guy. American is the term for a citizen of the United States of America, as Mexican is the term for a citizen of the United States Of Mexico. Canadians are Canadians and Cubans are Cubans; and so it goes with the other countries of North America.

If Texas secedes, they will be Texans and North Americans; but they will no longer be Americans.
