The point might be the people behind Government, according to your
logic; every person who has been borned in America should be a USian,
because the word American was used by Europeans referring to America
as the continent. It was not well understood and now is part of the

cocaine, and it is private property of South Americans. In short, if
none protest, it is assumed as true!
