The Postal Act of 1792 further defined the role of the Postal Service. Under the act, newspapers were allowed in the mails at low rates to promote the spread of information across the states. To ensure the sanctity and privacy of the mails, postal officials were forbidden to open any letters in their charge unless they were undeliverable.

early History of the U.S. Postal Service
The United States Postal Service first began moving the mail on July 26, 1775, when the Second Continental Congress named Benjamin Franklin as the nation's first Postmaster General. In accepting the position, Franklin dedicated his efforts to fulfilling George Washington's vision. Washington, who championed a free flow of information between citizens and their government as a cornerstone of freedom, often spoke of a nation bound together by a system of postal roads and post offices.

Publisher William Goddard (1740-1817) first suggested the idea of an organized U.S. postal service in 1774, as a way to pass the latest news past the prying eyes of colonial British postal inspectors.

Goddard formally proposed a postal service to Congress nearly two years before adoption of the Declaration of Independence. Congress took no action on Goddard's plan until after the battles of Lexington and Concord in the spring of 1775. On July 16, 1775, with revolution brewing, Congress enacted the "Constitutional Post" as a way to ensure communication between the general populace and the patriots preparing to fight for America's independence. Goddard was reported to have been deeply disappointed when Congress chose Franklin as Postmaster General.

That's the problem. They are not self-supporting. They are in the red $16 Billion.

How do "We" fix it?

I believe it can be done and be done with postal rates that are reasonable and efficient.

But it can NOT be done with congress having oversight on management and fiscal policy but no accountability for the results.

HeII, Congress can't balance OUR budget, let alone a semi-private company as complex as the USPS.

Ge the govt. OUT of the mail business.

So why are Tax payers not going after the billions on foriegn aid, vacations of presidents, life time medical and retirerment for the president and congressmen and senators.

Why are you not going after high paid city worker leaning on a shovel and 5 others telling him how to dig or fill the hole.

Yes, why aren't we?

We have 1 Trillion + per year to trim. We can start with all of those.

I'm in favor of cutting and/or privatizing just about everything but the military.

Give us back the 72 billion paid into prefunding retirement and we have demanded it back. let us control the health care and the retirement.

But the money is gone we were told. This was all money made by us. not money from tax payers

They loot those closest first. There is NOTHING to govt does well or efficiently except gain more power and control. They loot, lie, rob and pillage EVERYTHING.

SSI, Medicare, USPS, Welfare, Food stamps, Fannie Mea, Freddie mac General Motors..... etc.

They are ALL bankrupt, tax dollars or not. They have been looted and robbed by our govt.

...and they all want reelected. ;\)

Very true hey guess what the tax payers own it all not the government. Take it back.

Imagine if everyone went to their employer and said stop my federal tax i will pay them ourselves at the end of the year. Gov would be bankrupt.
