Private Prison SystemSubmitted by WTF Finance on Sat, 02/19/2011 - 17:57
There's not much that the government doesn't do. It continues to grow in size, control, and cost while ignoring its limitations per the founding document.
As much as Government does what it shouldn't do it outsources the things it should be doing. Look at the control over the monetary system that Congress "handed" to the Federal Reserve in 1913 and how wars have been privatized for profit.
A topic that few people discuss in the liberty movement is the privatization of the prison system. Please read and share this article with your friends and call your representative to have Government in charge of the prison system.
It's more than obvious how it's a profit driven industry and no "free" Nation should put a system in place where incarceration is motivated by profiteering. Just as no free Nation should fight a war on drugs. It's more than clear how the two are connected.
