Trains outperform both flying and driving in every measure - capacity, mobility, speed, safety, cost, efficiency, energy consumption, profitability, carbon footprint, physical footprint, economic development, smart growth, and national security.
This is the silver bullet!
"Cities that have high speed rail will be more competitive and better positioned to attract tourism, businesses, and high quality personnel."
High speed rail is good for America... everyone stands to benefit!
HIGH SPEED RAIL = FREEDOM!
Freedom from the daily hassles, delays, dangers, and problems America's transportation systems have become
High speed rail = freedom from our current transportation problems
Freedom from airport security hassles, freedom from never-ending flight delays and cancellations, freedom from being forced to spend hours stuck in airports, freedom from having to turn off your electronic devices, freedom from endless traffic jams, freedom from car accidents, freedom from foreign oil dependency and rogue nations controlling us, freedom from oil price spikes, freedom from transferring our wealth (money we spend on transportation) to terrorist-ridden nations that don't like us, and freedom from being pulled into resource wars.
Promoting HSR for America is promoting freedom for Americans!
HSR is as American as we can get.
A National HSR system is the centerpiece of a sustainable America
