While this is true, most of the Founding Fathers wanted slavery to end, even many of those who held slaves themselves. It is even amazing that the small minority who were pro-slavery agreed with motions that they knew would end slavery.

I am basing it on Madison's record of the debates in the Constitutional Convention, the Constitution and what our Founding Fathers writings.

--> @Cogent_Cognizer

My thoughts exactly.

--> @GeneralGrant

I think you should be more specific. Many founders were pro-slavery, so since you didn't specify which ones you're talking about, then con can simply bring up someone like John Rutledge or something.

What historical documents are you basing this on?
