before UPS, fedX and the like, the USPS had a monopoly on package deliveries
if they could do it profitably, private concerns would be delivering junk mail, too
is it now time to assign each legal resident a unique email address to receive government mail?
that would entail providing internet access to every resident plus the means to check their e-mail
would that not be a more economic measure over time?
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
It would change the way I feel about the subject if I found out that they were subsidized. I honestly don't believe that they are.
Meaning, the private carriers can't do it for so low a price.And unless and until the post office is no longer subsidized, private enterprise is hog-tied.
I wouldn't love it, since it would be kind of a pain in the ass having to go further than the end of my driveway to get the mail. However I could just set all my bills to be sent electronically, and I'd probably only have to check it once a week, considering 99% of the mail I get is bills or junk mail. So it wouldn't be a huge deal.
