    mail delivery is a service.... the USPS holds a monopoly for mail delivery.

    Okay, I'll remember that it's a monopoly next time I mail something by UPS or Fedex.

    Youre comment was nothing more than snark. Nothing to rebut. Now, if you want to something with facts, logic, reasoning, substance...

    obviously you have a hard time with the fact when i bring them to you, so let's try the USPS bringing them to you and see where that gets.

    Is it your contention that the current communications "market" is a good example of free market competition, and that this market is producing output as efficiently as possible?

    Well, isn't that exactly what the OP is about? Allowing it to be between you and your state?

    Is the USPS completely funded by the fee's it imposes for shipping, purchasing boxes, etc? Or does it recieve any tax payer funds to pay for it's facilities, equipment, employees, and other operating expenses?
    According to their financial statements they get about 2bn a year in 'capital funds' from the federal govt. And of course they dont pay federal taxes.
