Conspiracies and censorship: The Emancipation Proclamation

I was having some ideas about slavery, and I decided to look up the Emancipation Proclamation, to give myself power and to remind me of what was done. [I found out one of the Christians I talked to thought it would be a good idea if I was enslaved - because of the choices I've made]

There are at least 5 different websites that I have gone to, looking for the Emancipation Proclamation - the 1863 Anti-slavery address - that will not show a typed copy of it, but instead a scanned in copy.

The scanned copy is much harder to read, and doesn't do anything.

In addition, the wikipedia article on the EP does not include any links to the actual text copy [except 1], nor is the document presented in the article - this is a dead giveaway.

My opinion then, is that there is a major effort to destroy and cover up the 1863 EP, and make sure nobody reads it too thoroughly - or else they might start seeing things in America that will blow the whistle.

A second opinion:
You can read the document, but you have to read it in a verifiable format, to give respect to the document.

The EP printed in text:

Websites that do not print it:
http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/featured_documents/emancipation_proclamation/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emancipation_Proclamation
http://www.archives.gov/historical-docs/document.html?doc=8&title.raw=Emancipation%20Proclamation
http://www.ourdocuments.gov/doc.php?flash=true&doc=34


Since finishing this post, I've found one additional website that DOES print it.
