    sometime back with my Mormon neighbor and his views about privatization mirrors Mitt to a tee.

    I mentioned this in a comment at the time and as I have had further conversations with Republicans, Mormon and non-Mormon alike they all have said the same thing.

    They have visceral hate of anything government that borders insanity.

    They will tell you with a straight face that for profit companies are the answer to all problems.
    And even if no problem exists, replace it.

    We are dealing with an element of society that has no empathy and they don't care.

      the deification of the Private Sector, Business, is insane.  Like the Private Sector never made an oops or two?  Were they awake four years ago?  Like the Private Sector has never been both corrupt and incompetent at the same time, burning themselves and everyone in its path, looking at you Kenny Boy Enron?

        Only government is corrupt. Only government is wasteful. The private sector is their co-God.
