Christmas time is coming. Normally that would signal one of the busiest times of the year for the U.S. Postal Service. But they may find it much more difficult than previous years to make their rounds.

Because not only do the Postal workers have to deliver Christmas presents to the American people, but they’re determined deliver Socialism as well.
The Communist Party USA news, People’s World, reports that the U.S. Postal Workers Union President Mark Dimondstein stated that it’s time for a political revolution in America. To that end he and his Union are endorsing Socialist Bernie Sanders for President in an effort to ensure that revolution takes place:
“WASHINGTON — The American Postal Workers Union announced today that its National Executive Board has voted to endorse Bernie Sanders for president. The vote follows Sanders’ rousing speech to more than 2,000 activists at the union’s All-Craft Conference, held in Las Vegas, in late October, where he displayed a deep understanding of postal issues and workers’ concerns.
“Politics as usual has not worked. It’s time for a political revolution,” said APWU President Mark Dimondstein. “We should judge candidates not by their political party, not by what they say, not by what we think they stand for, but by what they do. Applying that criterion, Sen. Bernie Sanders stands above all others as a true champion of postal workers and other workers throughout the country. He doesn’t just talk the talk. He walks the walk,” he said. “He is a leader in the fight to protect the public Postal Service.”
So as you consider giving your postman the traditional Christmas bonus this year, you may want to take into account their union’s support for Bernie and give them something more appropriate. Such as a book on how the free market and economics work or just a T-shirt with the Communist Che Guevera on it. Based on their union president, they might not know the difference or the significance of either one.
