The post office was the only game in town, because it is illegal for anyone else to deliver a letter. It is a Government monopoly. Social Security has always been a scam. The government, by force, took your money and in return promised you a "return" on your "investment". But how does a government get money? They tax their citizenry. So you are paying the "return" of that forced "investment". Then tack on that the first recipients did not pay in, and what part of this scenario sounds okay to you?

In regard to your post office, it has been a cash cow for the people who buy the votes. Such a serious flaw in Democracy, and that we are a Democratic Republic hardly seems real. The Post Office has money skimmed from its operation, every year, and still the money is not enough for the Congress.
If that money was never extracted, the system would last a little longer, but I suspect it is not salvageable.
As to SS, it certainly is a Ponzi Scheme, playing into the hands of people like Cloward & Piven, who were Religionists for Marxism. Piven still is.
That same money, in the earners' hands, would have risk, but not the risk of an elitist crowd breaking the bank to stay in power.
Ben Franklin was right, when he said that once a politico realizes the perks, influence and wealth that comes with office, they will move heaven and earth to keep it. So allowing people to control their own retirement funds does not serve the people in Washington. We will not wrestle control from these, who know better, apparently. Same with a Fair Tax.
When one sees that they wish to exempt themselves from SS and Obamacare, while wanting it for us, they deserve our disgust.
