The Mail Must Go Through

Do you remember this one? We realize the price of postage has increased, but so what, so has everything else in the USA.

It seems fitting that on the only day in which regular mail does not arrive our way, I want to say that I have spoken with Democrats, Republicans, and Independents, and the one this they all agree on is that USPS has significantly slowed to a snail pace. Thereby coining the phrase, snail mail.

Our nation's elected representatives are pressing the U.S. Postal Service over complaints about slow delivery since Postmaster General Louis DeJoy took over in June amid concerns a backlog could affect tallying mail-in ballots in November. 

US Senators Gary Peters (D-Mich.),  Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.),  Tom Carper (D-Del.) and  Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) mailed a letter to DeJoy, but we are not certain how long it took for that letter to arrive, if ever.

They are demanding he explains new changes he implemented this month, saying they’ve heard concerns from their constituents over USPS’s quality of service. They also exposed the Postmaster General for not responding to a letter Peters sent him earlier this month, so there is no verification about the arrival of this communique. 

Maybe the reals reason why Trump does not like USPS is that they have a long and established record of delivering, which is more than he can say or do.

Just so there is no question, the message says that it is essential that the Postal Service does not slow down mail or in any way compromise service for veterans, small businesses, rural communities, seniors, and millions of Americans who rely on the mail including significant numbers who will be relying on the USPS to exercise their right to vote. 

The real question which begs to be asked and answered is, have the #USA voting machines been compromised and that is the real reason why he won in the first place? ‪Trump says mail-in voting session "must be met with immediate litigation," continuing call to delay November election‬
