Will Space-X be as good as Gas-X?

Our country's future in space is riding on this private venture and it seems to have gone well so far. Maybe privatization of the entire space program is the way to go just as private companies success with our bloating issues. Your thoughts will be respected here, though not necessarily agreed with...

Has privatization of things (like security efforts in Iraq) led to higher costs or lower costs in general? I certainly don't mind the concept but always wonder if it is a better/less expensive product this way.

I don't think privatization of the ENTIRE program is the way to go but privatizing cargo hauling so NASA can focus on research and big space exploration projects makes sense to me. I suspect the next stage is not privatization of our entire space program but rather expansion of private sector funded ventures in space for industry and recreation.

I'm all for it as long as they don't bring a chest popping alien back with them.
