Yes, Amtrak is for the masses which is made up of individuals like you! So is our highway and airline system as are our law enforcement, fire safety, EMT systems, etc. You really don't live on island as much as you'd like to pretend that you did. We are all part of community and each of pay a share for those services that we all have access to - including you!
