== Thomas Jefferson ==
So he's listed as being a failure and an unsuccessful president, and had little to do with the Declaration of Independence. However, the article for him on Conservapedia says he had a successful first term as president, followed by a poor 2nd term, and the [[Declaration of Independence]] article says:
Early drafts [of the Declaration] exist dating to June 1776.[3] Jefferson's colleagues Benjamin Franklin and Adams made small changes in his draft text and Congress made more. The finished document, which both declared independence and proclaimed a philosophy of government, '''was singly and peculiarly Jefferson's.'''
So at least the part about the Declaration of Independence should be removed, or the articles changed to reflect his small role in the Declaration. --[[User:MarkN85|MarkN85]] 14:30, 28 April 2011 (EDT)
