    Is it archaic? It is reported to be losing 25 million dollars a day. I feel the US Postal system needs to be privatized.

    Or just make them no longer triple pay their pension system. The post office is one of the last government duties that was actually layed out in the constitution. That doesn't mean that it has to go through the US post office they used to be housed in private stores and had private mail carriers though. I use mine but your right they are in a hole when it comes to financing especially with the gas prices of late.
