Illinois Congressman Peter Roskam (R,IL) recently posted a photo on his Facebook page that really highlights the failure of government.
Roskam posted the photo with the headline “Government monopoly vs. private sector. Just sayin’.”
And take a look to see how right he is…
Here we have a dilapidated, rusting U.S. Post Office Box standing in a line with a gleaming new Fed Ex drop off box and a UPS drop off box.
The difference between a hidebound, failing U.S. Post Office as evinced in its rusting hulk of a post box compared to the bright, shining boxes from the privately run delivery companies is stark, indeed.
