That’s the mindset of some folks, despite the fact the U.S. Constitution actually calls for government to manage things such as defense, domestic tranquility, etc. In a way, it’s interesting – it’s utopian:

I don’t need anybody regulating the food I buy, I don’t need anybody checking the efficacy of the drugs I use, I’m never going to need a fire-fighter or a policeman, I don’t need roads and bridges maintained by some big agency, no not me, I’m fine with private “free market” solutions to everything, including education, defense, and immigration.

Call it a little naive, maybe, but… the sound bites seem appealing until you ponder little things such as: who deals with pollution in the streams you fish in, or how a family living in a hut copes with forest fires, hurricanes, or immigration (at least there’d be no more illegal immigrants.)
