Joan, your point is completely valid and I've thought about this a lot before. We are still calling the aboriginal peoples of North and South America "Indians" based on a 500 year old misnomer. I'm all for changing it, but "United States of Americans" is a little too wordy for conversational use and "USAs" just doesn't sound right. We need a new identifier, but it won't get used if it doesn't roll off the tongue. I have a feeling we're not the first to try to crack this nut.

"American" is a problem; it implies Canada to southern S. America and everything in between. Furthermore, it implies Americans of all races and nationalities as USA citizens. It reflects the hubris and arrogance of USA population over all the Americas. 
People who are citizens of Canada, Mexico, Tierra del Fuego Province, Argentina, and Chile are "Americans". People from USA are USAs.
