Karl, I meant take your money somewhere else. Not move! You are so stuck in your liberal writings that you can't even read correctly when someone pitches you a conservative viewpoint. Bottom line is that I completely think that any form of communication is not a right and such should not be treated as such. The only government intervention that should be allowed period is to establish a framework that allows competition.
And you think zoning laws prohibiting your neighbor from setting up a biker bar are your right?
The problem with conservative viewpoints are that they're narrow-minded, focused on one aspect of an issue without considering everything else. It's like looking at a green apple and assuming all apples are green.
From my experience "liberals" are much more open-minded, willing to consider various viewpoints and rationally argue their own.
I could write an essay worth of arguments as to why allowing private corporations to handle public infrastructure is incredibly inefficient, a drain on our economy, and causes long-term harm to our country. But these arguments have been written countless times. There's no real defense for this oligopoly of control, for the handling of public infrastructure under private auspices.
What argument do you present besides "I don't think government should...(etc.)"?
