All about my boy, Thomas Paine. Love it. He was a man for his time and for all time and his contributions should be considered at the top of the list for rational thought and saying what needs to be said. Oh.. And for getting America and more importantly, the ideals of democracy to come to fruition. He wasn't perfect, but he is an inspiration.

Sad that his reputation was tainted for speaking out against what needed to be spoken out against.
