Abolish USPS

August 14, 2020

Section 8 of the Constitution of the United States authorizes in these words: The Congress shall have Power … To establish Post Offices and post Roads.

I once lived on a post Road established by Congress in the 18th century and would drive about 8 miles from New Rochelle in Westchester County, New York past historic towns named Larchmont and Mamaroneck to Rye, where my friend, Republican pollster, Arthur Finkelstein, located the first office of AJF and Associates.

That post Road is associated with fond memories of an elderly student whose husband owned Shaeffer Beer and whose home displayed more Remington bronze sculptures than are in museums and, of course, Arthur Finkelstein, who taught two courses on campaign management and survey research for my Department at the College of New Rochelle and waged battle with Liberal Democrats until his death in 2017.

Arthur has come back to life in a character (Steve Weissman) in my novel Coda by calling on friends in the Mafia to clear the good name of U.S. Senator Bob Hill (R-PA).

Had he lived, Arthur Finkelstein would have found a candidate who challenged the lie promulgated by Democrat politicians that the United States Postal Service is to be revered.

Give me a break!

Governments are not good providers of service, which is why we willlingly pay a premium for delivery of documents and packages by FedEx and UPS. At holidays like Christmas, when lines are too long to sustain the Christmas spirit, I wonder why USPS was not abolished during the so-called Reagan Revolution.

The United States Postal Service is a monopoly, sanctioned by government, managed by bureaucrats who can’t manage and care less about their captives, we the people abused by USPS, and protected by a powerful labor union prepared to punish anyone who thinks that the 18th century concept of post Roads should be replaced by nongovernmental mail services.
