Do Republicans know that the Post Office is in the U.S. Constitution?

Nothing against the hard-working employees of UPS and FedEx, but those private companies had a hard time making deliveries this Christmas. The U.S Post Office is a better alternative--despite the fact that Republicans have been trying to kill it.

Before anyone claims that e-mail is killing the Post Office, please get the facts. The Republican Party has actively sabotaged and obstructed the Post Office, causing about 99% of its current problems.

Our founders established the Post Office in Article I, Section 8, Clause 7 of the Constitution because they knew that communication between citizens enhances the public good and shouldn't be exploited for private profit. Once again, Republicans have ignored the lessons of our founders.
