Sometimes Conservatives are so confusing.
I think the source of the most confusion comes from assuming Conservatives all follow a common playbook or somehow work off talking points. Perhaps
Republicans do. I don't know. I never was one beyond voter registration. Conservative is a world view, and that varies to each individual.
Some things I think Government does best and needs to be in charge of for the pure bad which comes from profit being introduced at any level. Fire,
Police, Corrections and Infrastructure maintenance are among those areas. They may not always do it best (if fact, may rarely do it well) but private
sector would simply make an obscenely profitable mess of roughly equal proportion.
Outside of those core services to maintain safety and order across society at the basic level? (The min. necessary so we can get on with the pursuit
of Life, Liberty and the rest of it), it should be private sector in the open market ..with about 10% of the current regulation, so market forces can
squash what doesn't work while what does, rises.....
This mess that is the PPACA? Well... It's the worst of both worlds in private and public, IMO. The Website is only the first sign of it.
