The FUUUUTURE of America is... High Speed Trains?

-By Warner Todd Huston

Train systems are losing money all across the country. Billions of dollars have been sunk into trains that Americans don't want to ride. Yet our president and vice president think that high speed trains are "the future"?

A future boondoggle, maybe.

  • I want to ride trains.

    A lot of money is spent on the highway system. Money should also be allocated for high-speed trains like the ones that exist in Japan, China and Europe. Ever been any of those places to see the rail infrastructure?

  • In reply to WestLooper:

    It is foolish to think that the same sort of systems they have in Europe will work in America. They won't. Our distances is far greater and population more widely spread. Not a penny should be wasted on rail in this country especially in a day when budgets are collapsing all over.
