From military services, including intelligence analysis, to ALEC for legislation writing, to charter schools and the privatization of prisons and prison services; the US government is abdicating it’s responsibility to regulate and enforce historic norms and laws regarding good governance for pubic services in the name of efficiency and cost savings. So we have sacrificed our rights to have government of, by and for the people to services by the lowest bidder.
F—k that S—t.
You get what you pay for and we need those who have the means and have benefited from the ‘system’ to pay their fair share for equal justice under law.
Prisons contain citizens, CITIZENS, entitled to the protections of the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. A captive population subject to exploitation by vulture capitalists.
