I'm hardly an expert on the USPS, but I suspect that the typical comment in the press is true: the USPS has public mandates, such as delivering daily to rural addresses, that make it difficult to compete with the commercial operations who can solicit the highest profit business and ignore those who don't want to pay their rates. Some people's conclusion is that we should therefore ignore those who can't pay the cost of UPS or Fedex. I would prefer a system in which the cost of the mandate is paid by the public sector, and they can just compete as well as possible for the rest.ant wrote:I found one of perhaps 3 people alive today that defend the USPS !
The USPS has suffered significant financial losses for the past 11 straight years and has been riddled with incompetence.
I know I don't want to trust my ballot to Fedex, or any other private sector entity. Which raises questions about electronic voting - vote by Gmail?
