    Republican war on the USPS.  Since the Republican demographic seems much more rural and prominent in the more rural smaller population states, a primary means of communications for many of these places remains the US Mail (someone please correct me if I am wrong?).  

    The Republican Party seems hell bent on killing off the USPS in favor of privatized services, yet they will be harming a large proportion of their elderly supporters who still depend on those government checks in the mail for their existence, since they really do not trust direct deposit as a concept.  The Republicans never seem to have realized that having no USPS will hurt their own supporters.  After all, aren't they the people who still favor mailing lists over electronic and social media?
