How in the world can Wisconsin think this train is a worthwhile venture? We will be subsidizing this thing for the rest of our lives with our highway money, which means less funds to repair our roads and put people to work. Every politician who backed this debacle should be voted out of office.

Apparently! I see every issue for what it is and my opinion is not skewed by political party's. If a politician stands for limited government, reducing taxes, and personal freedoms, then I will support him irregardless of party affiliation. Like the global warming argument, I believe our climate is changing but I do not believe we are 100% responsible for it, but on the other hand the means they are proposing to justify the end are worthwhile causes. Reducing our dependence upon foreign oil is something we should strive for, and if global warming is used as the catalyst to achieve that, then what's the harm? But to sacrifice every inch of pristine wilderness in this country so we can "drill baby drill" is reckless and irresponsible. The combustion engine has powered industry for 100's of years, there has to be a better way, innovation has been stifled by special interest groups whose only focus is too keep the profits flowing for their deep pocket clients. We've put people on the moon, yet we can't find another way to power a car or to produce electricity without burning fossil fuels?

the cho-cho is dim whit jim's dream one very small step closer to socialism. all the electric trains that we had 60 years ago went broke. it is proven they won't work. someone paid the dim whit off. The train is not even a well thought out plan. and idiot could see it is not feasible! at least don't set up for failure before the shovel hits the ground.
they talk about the train cost, has anyone thought of how much the land will cost the new stations to no where will cost!
