I hope the rail system fails because I hate the potus. Us Tea Party patriots are against anything and everything the president says or does. We could care less if the country fails we just want a white president. Romney and Ryan are tea party people--white and feel the same as I do.

IT'S THE BANKERS IN NEW YORK CITY WHO RUN THE UNITED STATES PRIVATE AND GOVERNMENT FINANCES WHO REFUSE TO INVEST IN THE UNITED STATES THAT'S HOLDING UP ANY RAIL INVESTMENTS IN THE UNITED STATES.

Population in the USA is spread out and investments in BILLION dollar rail lines is not appropriate.

China and other countries with populations concentrated in big cities with destinations for city dwellers makes sense for rail, like France with lots of people in Paris and they all travel to the South of France for holiday. High speed rail works fine.

In Minnesota the population is somewhat dense in the Twin Cities but the remainder of the state is farmland and forested areas with NO concentrations of people.

Existing rail in the Twin Cities can't move the people who would like to use it AND the rail line looses money every year it operates. It's also less convient than bus lines.

You need knowledge of the status of infrastucture in the USA.
THE OUTLINE GIVEN OF WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE IS EXACTLY WHAT CHINA IS DOING.
NOW WE ARE IN A RECESSION IN CHINA AT 8-PERCENT GDP GROWTH.
IT TAKES SOME WITS TO RUN AN ECONOMY, TO FIND SOMETHING FOR THE PEOPLE TO DO THAT'S A PRODUCTIVE WORK AND NOT WELFARE; TO CREATE NEW JOBS WHEN THE WORK HAS BEEN DONE.
<quoted text>
In the USA people on welfare WILL NEVER WORK!

Any work on infrastucture is done by high paid Union workers who are unemployed. The bums on welfare will stay on welfare their entire lives AND they raise their kids to also live on welfare.

System BROKEN!

Be glad you are in China DENG!!
