If USPS disappears, see what it costs you to ship something. It will pretty much cost you the same price as now for packages. Maybe even better than the USPS since the USPS is currently running as a monopoly (budget level shipping). UPS, FedEx and DHL are all competing against each other for most of their business. The USPS has a stranglehold on plain old letters.
