That's nonsense.  There's nothing inherently socialist about the government organizing, funding, and controlling certain sectors of the economy that are necessary to the functioning of a nation.  Some of the above could conceivably be contracted out to private entities but the headaches involved and the reduced accountability to the people makes that a tough sell.  Although, we might see more inept cops fired if they were privatized, so perhaps it's worth a crack?
