Everyone knows that the United State Postal Service (USPS) has been in financial trouble since the 21st century began. That is not surprising given that most financial transactions now take place on the Internet. I can’t remember when I last mailed a bill payment through them or much of anything else for that matter.

Privatize Snail Mail…

2017-10-18_20-10-31.pngOur current president seems determined to completely erase any evidence of his predecessor. There are a myriad of opinions why he fixates on this task. But that is not the subject of this post.  If he really wants to do something productive that won’t harm his personal businesses, which is a top priority for him, he needs to privatize Snail Mail.

For anyone who has been living in a cave for the last decade Snail Mail is the USPS or United States Postal Service.  I kind of agree with the Republicans, the real ones I mean, when they say the government should not be in an area where private businesses can do the job as good or better.  This has become particularly true of the USPS.  They have been dying a slow death for the last couple decades. Their main thing was business correspondence and that has dwindled to almost a crawl now.  Today almost everything is handled over the Internet and that is progress as far as I am concerned.

Due to being a government business controlled pretty much by congressional committees the USPS have not had the opportunities to modernize along with the competitors. It’s time to change that scenario.  Let them go out on their own to survive or die. So, Mr. President if you want to leave a legacy in place of your path of destruction privatize the USPS and let them live up to their potential or to die trying.  That is the American way…
