You're trying to use Thomas Paine's support of a small welfare program (not an "entitlement" program) to justify your support of massive expansion of Federal government and authority. Being adamantly opposed to centralized authority, I doubt he would have agreed with you.Wow, you read all that into, "Thomas Paine was the first to suggest a welfare entitlement program."?
