Ah... conservatives. I SHUDDER to think of what privately owned and operated roads would be like. Eugh... No thank you. Oh, and I work for a large corporation. i assure you, they're not any brighter or better than government. Any large organization has beaurocracy and red tape. It's kind of an emergent property.
But I LIKE my basic services to be provided by the government, because then I at least have a little say in it. I can't vote out the CEO of a company. Nope. I'm a small business owner. I WANT my customers to be able to drive to me. I want those roads for shipping. I want to drive to work! I want public utilities..... Some things you just don't want profit motive in. Some things just aren't profitable, but need to be done anyway. So, we all chip in and get it done, and we all benefit from it FAR more than we put in.
Basic infrastructure creates business opportunities. I'm happy to pay taxes for that.
