Okay, the Mausoleum I get and to a certain extent the school (ie: buying them a new wing) but why would you buy "State Assets" like the Police Station, City Hall or the Military Base? I mean, it works for if you want to play a corruption game where you work a sim up to owning a town Mafia-style, but realistically those things are public / government ventures and not privately owned or operated.

Well, the school might be privately operated, but buying the CITY HALL, the POLICE DEPARTMENT, and the MILITARY? Even if you're enabling them to be bought for corruption purposes, they're still not PROFITABLE institutions that you can COLLECT MONEY from. Since when has the MILITARY ever made a PROFIT?

What would happen with the military is you'd give $20,000 to grease a general's elbows.  Then he grants you no-bid contracts on mowing the lawn and stuff and has the government pay you $7K every week for it.  He's happy because he got money in his pocket, you are happy because you got money in your pocket... and the kid down the street is happy because you gave him $20 to do the actual mowing.  Win win win for everyone! (besides maybe those pesky tax payers)

Libbertarians take over the land of the Sims, and the military and police go on sale to the highest bidder.

That quiz is fail, because
a) All of the questions are either extremely vague ("Are you for free trade?") or are questions that should really be a sliding scale rather than yes/no.  The result is that everyone who is not a rabid extremist is going to say yes to all of the former and no to all of the latter.
b) All of the questions depend heavily on the current state of the governmental spending, etc.  "Should the military budget be cut?" for example, is very different question when asked under the Bush administration versus the Obama administration.

To go back on topic, here, I think it would be neat to be able to buy out "public" buildings like the school and the military, but instead of money the sim should get something else - like the ability to decide how to educate the children, or something.  It doesn't really make sense, otherwise.
