2. The postal service is mandated in the Constitution
Well, the right to bear arms is mandated as part of the Constitution (technically its second amendment), but we certainly don't see the Senate or President respecting that lately.
And freedom of assembly is granted to us by the first amendment, but apparently you don't have such a freedom if the government thinks
you might be eating in a restaurant associated with terrorists abroad. Then it's apparently acceptable to use deadly force against you... for your own protection, nonetheless. Were it not for Senator Paul, you might also be a recipient of this "protective action" while dining at your favorite pizza pub here at home. (It does make one wonder who the real terrorists are.)
Given the above, it would be no surprise to me if the current administration or Congress decided to ignore Constitutional provisions about the postal service.--
The only difference between Bush and Obama is the group they're wasting our taxpayer money on. It's time to elect responsible legislators.
