You've got to be careful not to give a propaganda version of history to suit your own argument. The facts as I stated in my post above are the facts. Yep I've heard about reading inbetween the lines but not in altering the lines to suit your idea of history. If Jefferson was in favour of abolishing slavery, then why did he own slaves at the time of writing his beautiful tome. That is a bit odd don't you think?
Your point about women Prime Ministers completely missed my point that you cannot add in women at your whim to a historical document just to make it look more politically correct when it was clearly NOT the case. By all means use the document for today but don't make out the Declaration was purer than pure, it was in words but NOT in deeds.
