When was the United States of America founded?
The United States of America was never truly "founded" as much as it was declared independent from the Kingdom of Great Britain on July 4, 1776. This date marks the signing of the Declaration of Independence written by Thomas Jefferson. This colonies were governed under the Articles of Confederation until the adoption of the US Constitution, completed on September 17, 1787. __________________________________________________________________ The 13 British colonies broke away from Great Britain on 4 July 1776 and became 13 free and independent states or 13 little nations. From 4 July 1776 to 3 March 1789, there was no autonomous sovereign called the United States of America. There was a confederation (alliance like NATO is today) of states under the Articles of Confederation but it did not establish the United States as a nation-state entity (autonomous sovereign). The United States of America as an autonomous sovereign started on 4 March 1789. So the real birthday or start date of the United States is 4 March 1789. 4 July 1776 is Independence Day, which is correct and that is what you see on calendars. But our country was being explored well before 1630, like I said we were officially declared free from Great Britain on July 4, 1776.

What are some similarities and differences between the US and Mexico?
First, the common features. Mexico and the United States are North American nations, bordering each other. Both are also commercial and business partners as part of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and have a rather long and complex history, including conflicts such as the Mexican-American War (1846-1848), as well as diplomatic and military cooperation, like the economic and material support that Mexico provided for the Allies during World War II (1939-1945). The population of the Southwestern United States has more affinity with Mexico, since several states like California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas used to belong to Mexico, and the population of these states has a great percentage of Mexican-Americans. Now, on the differences. Mexico is a Latin American nation with a large Spanish-speaking, Roman Catholic population (Roman Catholic: 88%, Protestant: 5.2%) while the U.S. is an Anglo American country with a majority of English-speaking population and a dominance of Protestantism (Protestant: 52%, Roman Catholic 24%). The racial make up of Mexico is predominantly of mestizo (60%) and Amerindian people (30%) while Americans are predominantly European (52%) and on a lesser degree, African (13%), Asian (5%), and Hispanic people of many ethnicities (15%) of which the majority, have Mexican ancestry. Both the U.S. and Mexico are federal presidential representative republics; Mexico has 31 independent states and one federal district while the U.S. has 50 states and one such federal district. Finally, the United States has the second largest economy in the world behind China, while Mexico is an emerging market ranking at the 11th position. Finally, some statistics (2016 est.): Population: Mexico: 123,166,749 United States: 323,995,528 Land area: Mexico: 1,964,375 sq km (758,449 sq mi) United States: 9,826,675 sq km (3,794,101 sq mi) Gross Domestic Product: Mexico: US$2.31 trillion (ranked 11th) United States: US$18.56 trillion (ranked 2nd) GDP Per Capita: Mexico: US$18,900 United States: US$57,300 Median Age: Mexico: 28 years United States: 37.9 years

Why do Jews hate America?
Falsity of the Question The assumption made in the question is false. For the majority of the history of the United States, most Jews thought (and continue to think) fondly of the United States as it was one of the few nations in the history of the World to treat Jews (from a political perspective) as equals. Equality of Jews in United States History Jews in the United States were never subject to humiliating taxes, occupational prohibitions, religious restrictions, ghettoization, incursions on freedom of speech or assembly, nor were they ever evicted from any part of the United States at any time. Therefore, most Jews respect and think highly of the United States. Notable Acts Promoting Jewish Citizenship and Equality in the USA A notable story about how old American respect is for the Jews is that Governor Stuyvesant of New Amsterdam (the Dutch Colony that became New York) permitted the Jews of New Amsterdam to keep and bear arms, a permission allowed to Jews in no other part of the world and entrusted the Jews of the city with a rotation on the wall protecting the city from Native American Tribes. This acceptance of Jews as equals has been a long part of American history and something that Jews have immense respect for. Similarly, George Washington's Letter to the Hebrew Congregation of Newport in response to Moses Seixas' Letter from Congregation Yeshuat Israel affirmed that from the moment of the US Constitution's enacting Jews would be equal citizens in the United States, entitled to all rights of the Non-Jewish majority. Now this is not to say that there was never discrimination against Jews in the United States, but that such discrimination was not led by the government. Anti-Semitism in the United States has almost exclusively been a social phenomenon and the government of the United States has almost consistently treated Jews (as a class) well. Apathetic Minority There is a small minority of Jews who do not care about America because they have little consideration for any non-Jewish State, but there is no animosity between them and America. They are only apathetic. (It would be similar to asking "the average American" about how he feels about Malawi; he wouldn't know anything and would not care to learn anything.)
Why do they call the Northeastern U.S. 'New England'?
People don't call the Northeastern U.S., "New England," because they are not the same thing. The Northeast region of the U.S. is comprised of two smaller regions, New England and the Mid-Atlantic States. The six New England states are Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island. The Mid-Atlantic States are New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and some people consider Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia to be part of the Mid-Atlantic/Northeastern region as well. So, New England is not the Northeast. New England is PART of the Northeast. The New England states are called New England because they were settled by the Pilgrims, who came from England. Except for Maine, which was then part of Massachusetts, and Vermont, which declared its independence separately, the New England states were all part of the original 13 colonies.
