Response to “Flawed Founders.”, and “Declaration of Independence.”

    Thomas Jefferson and George Washington are human, and like every human make mistakes. It is ironic, because of these two men, because of what they done for the country, their contributions and efforts, people today can without fear of imprisonment or death, criticize them. They owned slaves; does that take away the impact that these men have had on the country? No, what is in the past can never change; we can not go back into time and scold Jefferson for being a hypocrite. Nor can we change the impact that slavery has on American society. I for one am thankful that these men were alive at this point in time to established this country. However flawed they may be , the choices they made for this country are the reasons we are free today.
