Biden On (High) Speed

Vice President Joe Biden routinely speaks before he thinks and since his gaffes are usually comical and relatively harmless, he is given a pass and treated like a court jester. His rhetoric backing the administration’s intent on a high speed rail, however, is just too over-the-top to let him slide.

In proudly announcing that the administration is prepared to spend $53 billion on a high speed rail network, Biden provided a comparison of the US with Japan and China, saying: “This is about seizing the future…If we do not, you tell me how America is going to be able to lead the world in the 21st century.” In support of this idea, he has also said: “If we don’t get a grip, folks, they’ll not only be teaching us, they’re gonna own our kids.”

Who knew a high speed rail was so important? According to Biden, it is an issue of national importance and our very existence as a nation is at stake. He discovered this secret by traveling on Amtrak from Wilmington to Washington during his career on the Hill. This is the same Amtrak that was the government’s attempt to nationalize America’s passenger trains and has been economically failing for 30 years, receiving $25 billion in taxpayer dollars that still can’t get it to break even.

Biden now tells us the government needs to invest (lose) even more in nationalizing passenger trains in order that Japan and China won’t “own our kids”. Forget all the other things that the US should attempt to lead the world in such as: freedom, individual rights, advanced technology, space exploration, alternative energy sources, food supply, medical treatment, standard of living, etc. The “gold mine” of world leadership is buried in high speed rails.

One may assume that the first government high speed rail will “coincidently” be built between Wilmington and Washington. Cheer leading, Biden’s forte, must have its benefits.

    This idea is only important for one reason. To advance Agenda 21. Read about it and to accomplish this UN plot we must build a high speed rail system. Nothing they do is to promote America it is to promote the agenda of Globalism. The one feature of Agenda 21 is that all people will be sucked out of the woods and into the city and stacked liked they do in China. Please take the time to read about Agenda 21. Here is a video to start you on your way to educating yourself about this plan.
