USPS removed 12,000 postal boxes before 2016

Democrats are desperate to win in 2020, and they are counting on universal vote-by-mail to do so. Presumably, USPS mail collection boxes are an important part of their plan because they are hysterically accusing President Trump of “suppressing” the vote by removing postal collection boxes — the problem is, the Obama administration oversaw the removal of thousands of collection boxes as well. 

Democrat candidate Joe Biden recently brought up the collection boxes:

I was joking earlier with a couple on the call. I wonder if you’re outside trying to hold down your mailboxes. They’re going around literally with tractor-trailers picking up mailboxes. You oughta go online and check out what they’re doing in Oregon. I mean, it’s bizarre!”

Is it bizarre, or is it just business as usual for the USPS? The facts are that the USPS has been reducing the number of boxes for years, for financial reasons, and without regard to whom is in the White House.

According to The Hill:

USPS spokesperson Kimberly Frum said the Postal Service has for decades installed and removed its “iconic blue” collection mailboxes based on the volume of mail received to each. Frum also said that low-volume mailboxes are a financial drag on the Postal Service, which lost more than $2 billion in the second quarter.

Does anyone remember any wild-eyed Republicans back in ’16 accusing Obama of suppressing the vote by removing collection boxes? Turns out that during the Obama/Biden years 2011-2016, 12,000 postal collection boxes were removed. Back in 2016, the USPS explained that:

Nationally, the number of collection boxes declined by more than 12,000 in the past 5 years. 

But don’t confuse Democrats with facts. They are sure the removal of barely used collection boxes is an evil plot designed to suppress the vote.

Because of the outcry from the Democrats, the USPS decided to stop picking up the little-used collection boxes in western states until after the 2020 election.

The number of collection boxes is not the real problem with using the USPS to deliver the vote on November 3, 2020. They warned the states at the end of July that ballots might not be delivered in time:

The US Postal Service warned almost all of the 50 states and Washington, DC, that voters could be at risk of not getting their ballots back to election offices in time to be counted because election rules are not compatible with the time needed for delivery and return of absentee ballots through the mail.

President Trump has been saying that the USPS cannot handle the mail-in-ballots in a timely manner and that the results of the election would be delayed for weeks. The delays would provide plenty of opportunity for fraud.

  1. We the American people must stop mail in ballots period, they are destroying the integrity of our elections. The democrats are destroying our country.

  2. This is what it amounts too….the communists are planning on stealing the election through mail in voting. They’ll have every meskin in Mexico voting in our election plus their dogs. That’s why they have came out way ahead of time and said that Donald Trump would have to he forcibly removed from office because they already know that they are going to cheat him out of the election by fraudulent voting. Whatever the communists say Trump is doing….. they’re already doing it. Mark my word. Just go back and look for yourselves.

  3. Quit sending junk mail!! No one uses the USPS anymore except for packages any tax returns. Everyone uses email and texts and pay bills online. Even e-cards have replaced Christmas and birthday cards The USPS is out dated. No one raised such a fuss when phone booths started to disappear as cellphones became popular. Try to find a phone booth today. The Democrats are just mad because they can’t use them for mail in voting.

    1. Yes and please stop losing my packages. I am calling the Police on this one. Instead of bringing to my door, you left it at the office, someone waltz right out from under your nose with it. It was very expensive and I have bought another, so when I am done USPS you can pay me. I am waiting on another package, but it is coming from Prime!

  4. I don’t think so, the Democratic people are not sorry for anything they do, although it is mostly for filling their own pockets!

  5. Action speaks louder then words, PELOSI & Cronies from Congress didn’t give a damn to go on Vacation leaving citizens to wait till September for the much need of our stimulus checks, yet when Trump played her with the USPS rushed to save her fraudulent milling paper ballots. These evils needs to be vote out of power from our Government

  6. Right now Pelosi is the sorriest person in the USA, all she can do is lie and lie again, I bet she has trouble sleeping at night

    1. No. Nancy Pelosi doesn’t lose any sleep over the evil she does and says. She has no conscience left, having erased it totally by suppressing it totally.

  7. Our neighborhood USPS collection box is going to disappear before the end of the month. These boxes are constantly being broken into to steal the mail. They’re seeing little use these days, and a lot of vandalism. A number of years ago I pulled into the local USPS branch to drop some mail into the collection box, only to find an employee repairing the lock on the box. I asked the employee about putting the mail in the box to which he told me to take it inside. He added I wouldn’t use these boxes if I were you. This is the third time this year that this box has been broken into, and the mail has been stolen. It was the first week in March. He also told me that the last time the box was broken into, the post office was open and operating with a full staff. I’ve never put mail in a collection box since. I walk it inside the post office.

  8. This provides a note of levity in our current depressed time.
    The fact that right now Oregon is pulling out more mail boxes (and yes, we miss them – least I do)

    and then someone puts out the image of President Trump driving around in a big truck stealing mail boxes in the dead of night. Oi vey

    Fact is that Oregon has voted by mail for years – so what does it matter if Oregon keeps pulling out mail boxes (altho I wish they’d leave a few – I use them)
    but then the dems don’t wait around for facts, do they – this is hillarious. Uff Da!

  9. Pelosi wants to be president and Biden will be ousted the first year. Pelosi is already leaking scandals about Harris and Pelosi will force her out. Then presto Pelosi is president. Don’t count on Pelosi being voted out in November, she has ballot harvesting,illegals voting and the graveyard vote, plus mail in votes.

  10. Pe lousy is a joke, She didnt care about anyone when she got mad and stomped out to her “vacation” when Republicans were trying to get money to the American people who are behind on everything including food. She didn’t care about you , me or nobody! Suddenly she hears a clamour on the roof is it Santa?a reindeer landing? But nooooooo its the Postal Boxes being rattled and She jumps in her clothes and speeds to save the mail…..was it a store ad she was afraid she would miss out on noooooooo its all the mail in ballots that she is counting on to win the election for Sleepy Joe and his side kick Michael to save the ballots of the day…. Of course no mention of the importance of helping Americans feed their kids, pay the rent ect…… Shes scared we might find out that all the dogs, cats, rats, horses and pigs votes are counted Democrat>>>>>
    What……..and whose there with her scalded face and beady eyes of evil over seeing her , backing her, but ole Lucy FER…aka yep u know who.
