Re: Will not gain acceptance
Really? You wonder why? Are you not aware of the vast number of greedy corporations that control the American governments (federal, state and local)?
The 'citizens united' law gave the corporations the ability to own the majority of politicians in the USA.
Evidently, the corporations have decided that, right now, it's more profitable for them to have Americans crawl across the territory, consuming gasoline, cars and tires.
In reality, faster trains are being planned and designed for the US right now.
Ever heard of Elon Musk? He has this plan for super high speed trains traveling in near vacuum.
It's being implemented both in the USA and elsewhere.
I recommend reading more reports online.
