Do you think it is time to privatize essential services, such as air traffic control?


President Obama and the FAA has begun eliminating air traffic controllers at small airports and reducing them at large and busy airports and blaming these actions on the sequester. In order to prevent President Obama and future vindictive presidents from placing Americans in danger, do you think we should take essential services, like air traffic control, out of the hands of politicians and privatize them? Canada successfully privatized its air traffic control system years ago and it is run very well.

    Why can't the military, emergency services, or courts of law be privatized, if the private sector is so much more honest and effective than the public sector? How are they different than air traffic control services?
