Reasons To Disagree
This type of infrastructure is a natural monopoly. It should be publicly owned to prevent profit taking and other abuse.

Any natural monopoly should be owned by government. If its so easy to compete, let a private operator start a new airport.

This is vital infrastructure. Should be owned by the state.

How is it easy to compete with your hands tied behind your back? Natural monopolies owned by a government is legislated into existence - it isn't there as a competitive monopoly. Governments have no place in business for the very fact that it's too easy to manipulate for corrupt political reasons, instead of viable commercial ones.

The government should own a military airport for the 1 defense force we should really have an airforce. but thats it

It is not the place of government to run any commercial concern. By owning such they are in effect making us all shareholders in a company open to business risks; they do not have the right to do so.
