    I guess the people on this thread think you are SOL.

    You can't have a genuine (representational) democracy without the ability to send and receive voter information booklets, absentee ballots, books, newspapers, magazines, and campaign material to everyone, even people living in (unprofitable for private delivery services) rural areas.

    In a lot of places, there are free bill pay sites online that will pay virtually any bill for free, no surcharges at all. You ought to look into that.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You can get return receipts on e-mail.

    .....USPS is historically the biggest employer of veterans. USPS applicants take civil service aptitude tests, and veterans get five points added to their test scores. Disabled veterans get 10 points. Over 108,000 former service men and women are current USPS employees, about a fifth of the workforce. But the average USPS employee is now over 53 years of age, and workers aren't being replaced as they retire......USPS hiring freeze hurts veterans, postal workers say peoplesworld

    Too many people still don't have a computer, know how to use it, or even want one. Also, few people like to read long documents off a computer screen.

    That's life. Here's the time to get one. That's like saying not everyone owns a car so we have to keep providing for the horse and buggy. Time marches on. Those who refuse to keep up can go extinct.
