    They hate the government (although their teeth are firmly attached to the govt teat.) The normal things that any government has to do to keep a country strong, they call socialism. In their eyes, the sole function of govt is helping business. And that includes selling off public investments at fire sale prices.

       Despite their Ayn Randian self identification, their model for how a society should work is China.
