The Nafta Super Highway/Trans Texas Corridor is applicable.

From what I understand, people that have already paid for roads with their tax dollars will now be paying some foreign company, because of secretive government hanky-panky, to drive on those roads, and screw themselves at the same time with the whole thing.

Having private property rights is important. But I don't think that is what public/private partnerships are really about.

Personally, to me the basic question of whether something should be private or public lies in its usage. Hopefully I'm not oversimplifying this.

Shared public-usage thing? Not private.
House or land or car that is not for public sharing or usage? Private.
Public/private partnerships? Noose.

Just an opinion.
