Your answers to both the above are disturbing, they denote a lack of any depth of understanding. I will assume that is due to no interest in either of those areas on your part, since information on both is readily available and easily accessible all over the web.
I’m not inclined to write a book to explain my statements, but the original writings of our Founders are easily accessed on the web. You might read through the Declaration of Independence, The Preamble to the Constitution and the U.S. Constitution itself.
When I went to school, we had to memorize the Preamble, and I did in the 6th Grade, with refreshers in subsequent grades. We studied all our Founding Documents as a requirement in both History and Civics in multiple grades. We not only had to study the words we had to parse what they meant, the intention of each statement, how they insured our freedoms, and how they impacted everyday American life.
This is the Preamble:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Our children are no longer taught any of that, if you think that’s an accident, you’re wrong. Here is proof (notice that Bill Ivey works for Global Cultural Strategies):

And as I’ve mentioned, we’ve all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry. The unawareness remains strong but compliance is obviously fading rapidly. This problem demands some serious, serious thinking – and not just poll driven, demographically-inspired messaging.
These are the first two sentences of the Declaration of Independence:
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
This is the First Amendment to the Constitution, which prohibits only and specifically the Congress of the United States, not the states, counties, cities or people:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Nowhere in any of our Founding Documents, including the Constitution, does the phrase “freedom FROM religion” occur. Quite the opposite, what does occur is the assertion “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” that means “freedom OF religion”. The Federal Government is in direct violation of the First Amendment because it’s forcing Secularism, a belief system (establishing a Federally mandated religion), down our throats through the illegal use of force of law while, at the same time, “prohibiting the free exercise” of our chosen religion.
In addition, nowhere in any of our Founding Documents, including the Constitution, does the phrase “separation of Church and State” occur. That concept as applied today is in direct opposition to anything espoused or promoted by our Founders. Thomas Jefferson used the phrase in a letter to Danbury Baptist Church to reassure them the Federal Government WOULD NOT interfere with their free exercise of religion.
Also, you might check WallBuilders, it’s a great place to find original source writings of the Founders, often with links to the Library of Congress:

Then there’s the Supreme Court ruling (called The Trinity Decision) where they conclude after 10 years of deliberation examining copious research that, “These, and many other matters which might be noticed, add a volume of unofficial declarations to the mass of organic utterances that this is a Christian nation.“:
Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States (full text) :: 143 U.S. 457 (1892) :: Justia U.S. Supreme Court Center
The freedoms guaranteed under our founding documents, written by Christians, have been fast eroded as our government comes under the sway of those espousing the guise of Secularists who are really Marxists/Communists. The one thing all totalitarian ideologies have in common is a hatred of and for religion, especially the Christian religion.
Communist Agenda List
“The communist goals were entered into the Congressional record by Albert Herlong, Jr.
(a Floridian who served in Congress from 1949-69
Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35; January 10, 1963
From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen).“
This is an actual pdf of the Congressional Record listing the Communist Goals:

All the above I’ve written just scratches the surface of what you and every American need to know. It’s critical if you value truth and your freedom.
Do these Google searches:
- Islam taught in public schools
- Saudis funding Islamic studies in public schools and colleges
- Saudi donations to American universities
- Wahhabism beliefs
The Saudis are Wahhabis:
“Wahhabism has been accused of being “a source of global terrorism”, inspiring the ideology of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), and for causing disunity in Muslim communities by labelling Muslims who disagreed with the Wahhabi definition of monotheism as apostates (takfir) and justifying their killing.“
This is the motto of the Muslim Brotherhood:
“Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope. Allahu akbar!”

I’ve given you only a small bit of research material, now it’s up to you to do your part and study it. I hope it will cause you to grow more interested, because it’s your country, freedom and way of life that are at stake.
