Proof America is Dying: 5 hours 49 Minutes by train, 3 hours by car
The trip from Austin to Dallas takes five hours and 49 minutes by train. By car it’s three hours. 211 miles.
Thats a pretty good statement that our train system is beyond antique. It’s absolutely rubbish. America is running itself into debt spending everything on war and an un-needed security state. China is doing the same, but building cities and high speed trains. When our debt bubble pops, we will be left with 1930s infrastructure across the nation and 1930s speed train travel. When china’s pops, they will at least have a highly modernized infrastructure.
America will become a big tourist destination – for other modern nations to see what it’s like to live in a primitive antique society.
