I view entitlements the way I do these Foundations set up by Hillary and Donald.
Take Social Security for example, people do benefit from it but by in large it is used as a slush fund for politicians who take whatever is left in the pot, leaving behind worthless IOU's.
In case you forget, the preamble to the US Constitution states:
"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
Social programs, which you rudely refer to as "entitlements", fall under this purview. Are you saying that you do not believe in the purpose of the US Constitution? In your Randian "worldview", I understand that you support rational and ethical egoism, and reject altruism. She didn't believe the "little people" should be helped, either.
