It was April 6th 1652, about 150 years after the first settlers set foot on American soil.

See, and read the closing lines:

It was also 124 years before American Independence Day. New Amsterdam became New York on Sept 8th 1664, barely 8 years later. Holland Michigan was settled in 1847 and introduced Calvinism and the Dutch way of life that still exists in America today.

Martin van Buren was elected in 1836 to become the 8th President of America. He had also served as the 10th Secretary of State under President Andrew Jackson.

In between chasing skirt and same sex marriages Bill Clinton finally saw and smiled on the removal of White Government in South Africa in 1994.

What awaits America in Africa today but Rejection? We have no fears of China and Russia; we never had. They somehow assist in keeping things from falling apart at the seams in South Africa today. America has lost its lure. How sad?
