The U.S. government used control over the mail to manipulate elections from the beginning

BREAKING: Another U.S. Postal worker has been caught destroying more election ballots.

Last week, U.S. Postal workers in Pennsylvania and New Jersey were caught destroying and misdirecting U.S. mail–including election ballots. Now another USPS deliveryman has been arrested for trying to destroy more ballots, in Kentucky.

“A construction worker found about 112 unopened ballots and two political flyers abandoned in Jefferson County,” according to Newsweek.

The elections of 2020 will be like no others in history, with the USPS controlling delivery of ballots. This unprecedented change is alleged to be in response to the Covid-19 “pandemic,” but almost no expert views in-person voting as dangerous in any way.

U.S. Postal “workers” are notoriously biased in favor of big government, high taxes, and the Democratic Party. In 2016 the USPS actually gave time off and other benefits to postal workers who campaigned for Hillary Clinton.

The USPS enjoys every conceivable advantage in the marketplace, yet loses billions annually. Its “workers” are grossly overpaid, and thousands of Americans apply for every job opening in the “Service.”

The great economist Murray Rothbard, in his book Conceived in Liberty, recounted how pro-government forces (Federalists) used their control over the mails to manipulate the outcome of America’s earliest elections, including the ratifications of the Constitution itself:

This vulnerability [of anti-Federalists being generally more rural and scattered than Federalists, who were mostly urban] was viciously exploited by the Federalists, who used their control of the expensive U.S. postal monopoly to delay greatly the mainly Antifederal newspapers as well as letters to and from leading Antifederalists. The postmasters were mainly Federalists: Postmaster General Ebenezer Hazard was a Federalist, and the New York Postmaster Sebastian Bauman was a close friend of Hamilton. And the Federalist Pennsylvania Postmaster openly refused to mail an important address by the Antifederalists at the Pennsylvania convention. Thus, while letters between nationalists of Virginia and New York regularly took six to fourteen days to arrive, mail between Antifederalist leaders in the two states often took six to ten weeks to get through. The handful of Antifederalist papers often failed to arrive at all, particularly in New England, New York, and Pennsylvania, and those that did come through had particular items cut out by the postal authorities.2 Even George Washington was outraged at the wholesale blocking of Antifederalist mail and was later to fire Ebenezer Hazard for taking the trouble to abandon stagecoaches in delivering the mail and returning to the far more inefficient method of post-riders during this period.
