I think we need to move the Post Office back into being a real department of the federal government with civil service employees and a direct allocation from the budget. My desire is to make it a working system that can deliver letters and packages in a reasonable time and at a reasonable cost. Also, I like our Constitution and want to obey it. It specifically give Congress the authority to create post offices and post roads. I may be weird, but I interpret this as giving them the duty to run the post office not to create it as a quasi-private company. It is debatable that the postal service should be profitable or even charge for its services other than tax.I guess it really comes down to you and me Americans -- do we accept the us postal service as an necessary good that's going to lose money no matter what because well we want the mail we do get and we want it now and that includes the addresses in the rarely treaded back roads as well as those off the super highway. Or do we try to bash it into an at worst break even quasi private company that may not service every address? I favor the former at least conceptually myself. But to me if we want that then we got the make the noise to get it.
