I've known about this for months perhaps even as long as a year, whenever this first came to light. Don't be surprised that die-hard party lovers
will come and derail your thread with misinformation and parroted talking points. People will ignore the fact that the Post Office is fully funded by
it's own business plan and the act you are talking about is meant to crush it so it can be privatized. Some people think business obeys some magical
laws of a free market, which seems to be defined different by every individual, in our obviously corporate controlled existence. When was the last
time GE or Goldman Sachs faced market rule? Free markets depend upon consumers having the complete and utter truth about a company and its products,
but we all know that advertising is the complete opposite of this. Privatization of social needs is always detrimental to society. Just look up
private prisons if you think different.
Some are still so involved in the two-party system that they are basically just fanbois of one party or another. Democrats had the chance to right
this wrong, yet they didn't. Why? They are the same party basically. The GOP is 100% the "champion" of multinational corporations and
privatization of every sector of society, but the democrats have their own agenda which isn't ours. The democrats support the multinationals and
financial sector just as much, even if their propaganda, aka talking points, is different from what Republicans use to pander to their bases.
Democrats play off of people's want of fairness and of putting people and society above monolithic institutions like corporations or even religious
establishments. In reality, neither supports the people. I think from now on, any blowhard who still believes either establishment works for us or
in our benefit should be left behind in conversation. Diehard republicans or diehard democrats should be treated as trolls, wanting only to derail
meaningful conversation by inserting personal attacks or misinformation to muddy the waters of intellectual debate. Anyone using talking points is
obviously a person who cannot think for themselves. They have nothing to say, so lets keep them from getting us angry and helping the political and
business establishments destroy this country for their own profit, whether power or wealth which is really one in the same thing.
To sum up, the destruction of the Postal Service was done on purpose by Republicans and faces no opposition from Democrats. The Post Office is fully
funded through its own business plan and not through tax dollars, unlike Goldman Sachs or GE or insert large multinational corporation here.
Privatization is never a good option for social needs, that is unless you favor the even further fleecing of Americans and the further destruction of
society for the benefit of the few at the cost of everyone else. Like I said, just look to private prisons for a dose of reality. The PO pays very
well and still has a retirement plan, while still being totally funded through it's business plan, and shows that these large corporations should be
paying Americans a hell of a lot more than they are. Keep electing the two establishments, which are mutually involved in the sell-out of America to
private business interests, and keep complaining that America sucks and trying to assign blame to a scapegoat while you ignore the true situation.
Keep parroting those talking points! I even saw a thread by a "conservative" saying not to reply if you want to tell me the two-party system is an
illusion. They knew the truth, yet preferred to live in fantasy land. Amazing.
