The Ayn Randroids have argued that private enterprise, not the government, created the internet. Very imaginative. Let us take the implied challenge; let us show that we can be just as creative. I ask readers to come up with similar arguments which would allow freedom-lovers everywhere to give full credit to private entrepreneurship for the following accomplishments:
1. The interstate highway system
2. The moon landing
3. The defeat of Hitler's Germany and Tojo's Japan
4. The killing of Osama Bin Laden
5. Overtime pay
6. Paid vacations
7. Traffic signals
9. Air traffic control
10. Social Security
Feel free to rewrite history as needed. Young people won't know enough about the past to call you on any lies -- especially if they've gone to parochial school or an underfunded public school.
Bonus: How many veterans out there (especially the ones who are unemployed or underemployed) would like to scrap the VA in favor of a for-profit plan?
