Having been borne and raised in the US, I support and use the term
``Usian'' to refer to those from the US. American is not precise enough,
as it can refer to anyone from either continent.

Yes, Canadians, Brazilians, Mexicans, and Colombians are all Americans.
Just like how Frenchman, Germans, and Spaniards are all Europeans.
