I think there are certain things which are inherently government functions. And I also think that when inherent government functions are "outsourced" the problems mutliply, not decrease. I wouldn't want to see criminal law administered in the private sector, just like I don't want to see prisons operated for profit, or mercenaries fighting our wars "unofficially" as some off-the-books operation managed by an intelligence agency instead of Congress. Now, in the la la land of bunnies and gumdrops, all the happy an caps can just get along without any oversight.
