Im pretty sure the american elections, the campaigns anyway are privately funded, which explains partially, how rooted the upper echelons of american society are in shaping the political scene.

Privatizing something, especially right now, with the economy the way its going is incredibly dangerous. When things go wrong economically, a private company simply throws out the workforce to cut their losses. Public sector, and publically funded industries can actually get you through a recession because in constantly operating at a loss, it keeps employed, keeps money circulating, goods exchanged....it's a counter-cyclic property. That's why scandanavian countries have such strong economies. where else in the world can a woman get nine years paid mat leave????
