STOP THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE MONOPOLY NOW!

It's been said that Americans will put up with anything - as long as it doesn't involve waiting in line. And as I wasted half a day mailing a gift this past holiday season, I asked myself why that sentiment doesn't apply to the US Postal Service. In the age of instant communication, with trillions of dollars crossing borders in nanoseconds and grandmas sending email, why do post offices even exist?

So what would happen if this 180-year-old trust disappeared tomorrow? Would the US seize up like an engine without oil? Hardly. Better alternatives to the USPS are already here, and plenty of others would emerge.

IT'S TIME FOR THE FREE-MARKET TO TAKE OVER THIS GOVERNMENT DINOSAUR...

STOP THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE MONOPOLY!
