Time to Privatize Postal Service & TSA

Editorial, Published D&C 9/19/11

Like the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and countless other costly and sorely mismanaged govenrment-run programs, the chronically deficit-prone U.S. Postal Service should be privatized. Indisputably, to achieve efficiency and financial stability, the profit motive always works best. This would save Americans billions.

Common-sense realists not blinded by pie-in-the-sky big government ideology know that government has never, ever been the answer. As President Ronald Reagan said, "Government is not the solution to our problems. Government is the problem." We need but to look around at our shattered economy to see how painfully relevant that assessment is today.
