    It would run more efficiently. For example, during the mid 1990's, several post offices were added. Like Starbucks, some were across the street from one another. For some reason, an executive order was given to have a post office in every zip code. Then, about ten years ago, the democrat controlled postal committee had several closed & auctioned off. Paul Pelosi was usually the buyer (developer). That's called Maladministration.  Today, a 1st class stamp is 55 cents. It will continue to rise because of maladministration.

    No.  There is no good reason to do that.

    FedEx and UPS deliver PACKAGES.  They DO NOT deliver to all areas of the country.  The post office delivers to anywhere where a letter or package is addressed even if in a remote cabin in the Ozarks.

    Yes.  The fact is that private companies have shown they can do the job FAR more efficiently than the USPS.  The USPS should be auctioned off to become a private company and the law forbidding private competition with mail delivery should be repealed.  The ONLY part of the USPS that should remain public is the investigatory arm.  The rest lives or dies as a private company.  

    Now, rules would have to be established for rural delivery, which is extremely costly relative to volume.  When a company delivering mail is handed a letter it accepts an implicit contract to deliver that letter to the specified address.  If it subcontracts with local mail delivery companies, that's fine.  If an address is very rural, it need not do daily deliveries but there must be a minimum number of visits over time.  Say once or twice a week?

    The ONLY reason the USPS continues to have a legal monopoly is as a favor to it's politically powerful union.
