libs hate the idea of the middle class, and especially the upper middle class, being able to isolate itself from the poor.

Shinkansen is 18000000, but no doable here.

Too late, too much red tape.

We would be better off skipping high speed rail and spending the money on some new form of efficient mass transit.

It would be, what makes bullet trains great is they are fast enough to compete with air travel on speed and price.

But, alas, there is no political will because no one is pissed off.

As opposed to the luxurious splendor that is domestic commercial air travel? I may have to be in the same cabin with a bunch of poors on a train, but I don't have to contend with their love handle flab oozing over the armrests and pressing up against me like I'm in the fucking blob.

High speed rail works great in Euro countries, which are small, and Japan, which is small. It can be cheap and cost effective whereas the vast size of the United States makes rail impractical. Flights have also become so cheap and frequent that this and their speed makes rail impractical, even "hi speed" rail. That's why America won't have train systems like other countries. Plus, we already have AmTTTrak which covers the entirety of the country so if you do want to go by train, have at it.

Gay Rape is cr. And don't forget the Acela which is kinda fast and as expensive as flying but works well for the close cities of the east coast

Huh? 3 hours door to door from DC to NYC and you don't have to haul out to the airports on the outskirts of town/the next town over? It's competitive on time and price with air travel along the mid-Atlantic, especially if you're paying for ubers or parking at the airports. Rather than spending $100B on "high speed rail" they should've just built an Acela on the west coast. It would work in other places too, e.g. it's a long annoying drive to get from Houston to New Orleans and if there was a train that took 3 hours and delivered me right to downtown I would do that in a heartbeat.

Acela is much slower than the TGV, Shinkansen, Chinese bullet trains and generally most other "hi-speed" trains in the world.
