Who could afford to buy out a state's highways?

Given any money system, those with the most toys(i.e. money/gold) will be the ones who buy out a state's highway. It definitely won't be me.

Privatization of highways would allow the owners to charge as much as they want and hire their own gaurds to watch their roads. Who would prevent them from using anymore force than our government uses?

Is this really what libertarians want? And why? I personally don't mind paying a little bit of taxes to have them state funded and public.
