Just stumbled accross this most excellent site while searching up info on Tom Burton.

Were the power of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would subvert the very foundation, and transmute the very nature of the limited Government established by the people of America.

Privatizing prisons--that's fucked up.  Giving them a 'for profit' motive to lock people up is an indication that capitalism has gone awry.  Prisons are a 'necessary evil' in society, and to turn them into profitable businesses makes me nauseaous.

Private prisons are not paid by the number of people they manage to rehabilitate, or by the living conditions that exist in them. They are paid by the number of prisoners they are holding. They have no incentive to treat these people with respect, and since they are not regulated and are not accountable to any governmental authority, there is nothing that stops them from violating the prisoners' human rights.

It is the private prisons organizations that form the lobby that supports mandatory minimums and other similar draconian measures.
