    Again you are pushing government as the more efficient alternative to the private sector. Your youth and inexperience are showing.

      I think that if co-ops or local government can provide a better service for less moeny, then we should do it. It has nothing to do with youth or inexperience. Our school, prisons, libraries and military are all run by the government (and I wish health care were provided free and universal as well). would you privatize prisons and the military as well?

    You’re kidding right? You don’t think prisons (and the military, for that matter) aren’t already thoroughly, if not completely, privatized?

    Do you know what it takes to run a heating fuel company?
