    in fairness, some things are amenable to privatization.

    Not prisons, though.  The opportunity for perverse incentives abound.  Money/prisoner cycled back as campaign contributions, buying influence to criminalize more and more behavior, necessitating more prisons, etc.

    I never understand how that kind of scheme is perfectly acceptable to Republicans, when that scenario is in a nutshell the GOP argument against labor unions- which are despised on faith.
