I had to ship an item. So I compared Fed Ex, UPS, and USPS. The USPS is 50% less than FedEx, and almost 50% less than UPS!!!! So, if the government is in the same business, we as consumers benefit? Huh? That goes contrary to all the spin being touted by people? Thank You VERY MUCH US GOVERNMENT FOR GIVING ME AN INEXPENSIVE WAY TO ship my goods and transact business. Otherwise, __"Capitalism"__ would choke me.
