    hate to bust the bubble here, but there's absolutely NO WAY UPS and FedEx would EVER allow USPS to die.  They depend too much on USPS for "last mile" delivery services, especially in rural areas.  

    UPS and FedEx don't make money on delivering one package to a rural Nebraska county.  So they pay USPS to do it, after delivering it in their system to the nearest depot.  These two companies will fight to keep USPS alive, especially in rural areas where they don't want to have to build infrastructure.  

    Yeah the rs will make it messy, but USPS will not die.

      I hate to burst your bubble, but FedEx and UPS both want to acquire the assets of the Post Office and when that happens, and I think it's very probable, they will have assets and an infrastructure to perform the job.

      Believing that FedEx isn't interested in taking over the Post Office isn't realistic.
