    Privatization is GOP dogma and will rear it’s ugly head whenever the republicans sense an opportunity.  In my opinion privatization for profit, often using discriminatory money saving practices, just doesn’t cut it as an alternative to of our government living up to it’s responsibility to serve our country.  But of course with recent GOP dominance in government over the last decade we’ve privatized a great deal of our military (anyone ever read about the long term effects of using mercenaries?), our prisons (recent lawsuits around the country), our parks and lands (Fort Knox was just given to the Americans for Prosperity under the guise of a lease to the FOFK, my opinion), and now our schools.  It just isn’t right.  Government should be tasked with maintaining our schools, or military, our prisons, our parks, and all the other individual parts which make up “the public’s” interests.  These acts of tyranny and theft meant to feed the unregulated machine of corporate greed need to be retired to the Hades from which they emerged.  I urge all American citizens to vote against any person who sponsors or promotes the GOP agenda of privatization.
