A picture does say a thousand words. Just look at the Federal, State a Private mailboxes in the above picture. If this is not a true and visual testament to vast difference between government-run verses private-run businesses, I do not know what is. FedEx and UPS are both successful business, make large sums of money each year and employ thousands of people. On the other hand, the US postal sevice is about 20 years out of date, bankrupt and requires our taxpayer money in order to survive. Can you imagine what things would look like if the government took over 1/6 of the economy by implementing Obamacare?
