Liberals Freak Out at Sen. Rand Paul for Opposing Bailout of Bankrupt U.S. Postal Service
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is getting eviscerated by unhinged leftists on Twitter for criticizing their newest sacred cow: the U.S. Postal Service (USPS).
Paul said to U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy during a Senate hearing on Friday that the USPS should cut staff and make tough decisions, rather than expecting a federal bailout to keep their bankrupt operation afloat a little longer.
“We started that a few years ago, but we’ve got to do more of it,” Paul said. “The mail keeps dropping, you’ve got to have less employees.”
Paul is staunchly against giving the USPS more money unless they agree to concrete reforms that will put the agency on the road to solvency. He has blasted the USPS frequently in recent days.
“You might as well put it into a big pile on your front lawn and burn it,” Paul said to Fox News’ Neal Cavuto about the ridiculous notion of giving more federal money to the USPS.
“There is no way to give any money to the post office to make the post office redeemable. You cannot fix the post office unless you fix their labor problem,” he added.
The American Postal Workers Union, desperate to protect their racket from scrutiny, blasted Paul on Twitter for making his comments in favor of fiscal sanity.
Sen. Rand Paul takes the *brave* position of telling people who "live down dirt roads" they should get their mail two days a week. Rural Kentuckians will be angry to hear that! #SaveThePostOffice

The rest of the Left soon followed, spewing invective at Paul speaking the truth about their precious government bureaucrats. Some of the commentators even endorsed terrorism against Paul.
There’s a reason why Rand Paul was chosen to hand deliver a letter from orange face to Putin. There’s a very good reason as to why Ron Johnson flew to Moscow with 8 other GOPers on a 4th of July weekend to suck up to Putin. Those are what traitors and foreign assets look like.

So Rand Paul wants to cut days, hours and number of employees for the post office. That seems reasonable for a country with an unemployment rate at 14% and thousands of veterans who are employed by the post office and depend on the post office.

.@RandPaul is a selfish, arrogant, out of touch with reality White man. He lacks empathy, compassion, and any sense of kindness. Today he said why do senior citizens need to get their mail everyday? #SaveThePostOffice #NoDemLeftBehind

Idiot Rand Paul's logic is that we should cut jobs at @USPS because they're not making a profit. Ok, the Defense Department doesn't turn a profit either. In fact, it loses $740 billion every year! According to Rand Paul, we should fire the entire Defense Department!

Unfortunately @RandPaul just APOLOGIZED to Louis DeJoy, on Democrats' behalf, for THEIR bad behavior towards him.
So I'd like to apologize to Rand Paul's neighbor on his behalf.

Big League Politics has reported about the baseless conspiracy theories circulated by Democrats in recent days about the USPS:
The social media giant Twitter is refusing to take down fake news and conspiracy theories about the U.S. Postal System (USPS), presumably because the frenzied chatter may hurt President Donald Trump’s push for electoral integrity.
After President Trump pointed out that the USPS lacks the competence and resources to handle millions of mail-in ballots, liberals went frantic posting baseless conspiracy theories on Twitter about how Trump is at war with the postal service…
A spokesman for Twitter confirmed to National Review that the posts will stay up on the platform despite being proven to be false. They are keeping the misinformation up despite having fact checked President Donald Trump’s tweets regarding mail-in voting back in May.
Because of Trump Derangement Syndrome, the modern Left has devolved into a soulless hate cult. They will either be crushed, or civilization as we know it will be no more.
