What does it mean to “privatize government”?

Corporate flage of USAPrivatizing government means taking away from government the money to pay for health, education and retirement then giving it all to corporations.

Does anyone remember that The Government is We the People?  That government was invoked by Republican President Lincoln as “that government of the people, by the people, for the people”.

There is no doubt that there is some greed, corruption and inefficiencies in the running of government programs. We can fix that.

Are there any doubts that these also exist in corporate enterprise? Add to that the need for corporations to make profits for their owners and you have a recipe for higher costs and less service to the voter- taxpayers.

Therein lies the control we have over turning over our government to the corporations: the right to vote.

We as a nation will only turn over our government to the corporations if we vote to do so.

The Tea Party wants taxpayers to spend their money directly to big health insurance corporations instead of continuing to fund Medicare.

The Tea Party wants taxpayers to spend their money directly to big charter school corporations instead of continuing to fund public schools.

The Tea Party wants taxpayers to spend their money directly to big Wall Street investment corporations instead of continuing to fund Social Security.  

If voter-taxpayers don’t wake up now to what is going on, we will wake up one day to find our lives owned by the very corporations we voted to fund with our tax dollars.
