said by buccaneere:
Government is NOT supposed to be in business .
What does that mean?
If I understand you correctly Government should not be involved in Police, Fire, Water, Sewer, roads etc. All those services were once provided by private business. At some point people decided it was best to manage those activities for public good.
For years phone service was a highly regulated monopoly. Is it your opinion that was improper?
Who gets to set the rules of the game, private companies or elected officials?
