There is much talk of privatizing our highways. The theory is that private companies will be able to more efficiently maintain them by charging tolls. That makes sense, and even more sense when you look at it on the national perspective.
It starts to lose its appeal when you realize they may be bought up by globalist corporations for profit.
When you think of the system now on a global scale they are already owned by a private group. A private group of individuals pooled their money, like you would forming a business.
We worked as a group to get the money to build them. We worked as a group to maintain them with our taxes. By all rights they are the property of, "We the People" of the United States.
To allow the government to auction them off to the highest bidder could be considered is a theft. To pocket the money is flat out robbery.
We must been given a say in any deals that will result in looting public property. If a decision to sell is made, each legal citizen should be given a check of his or her own to do with as they wish.
The government is not an entity unto itself. To allow them to sell public property and pocket the money is like allowing a publicly traded company to liquidate and somehow grab up the loot for the entity of and in itself. It makes no sense.
Our country is a group of people working together to make a place to raise their children, educate them in a manner they deem appropriate, and be able to protect the resources for them when they grow up.
