Exactly. The POV is the biggest boost to personal freedom in history and that’s why the Left hates them. They clamor for “public transportation” such as buses, subway and rail because they know they can control them. The only thing they like about roads is the patronage and make-work welfare-jobs they create.
So, why don't peole want to give up their cars for hsr? Because they know we don't have the local public transit in place to get them from the hsr station to wherever they need to go.
For example. I work in what would be considered downtown Orlando. When Sun Rail was on the table they were talking about a depot near the bus station. Well, my work is approx. 5 miles from the bus station. And although I have not looked up the routes, if I had to guess it would take me 30 minutes to go that 5 miles including the walk from the drop off point to the office building. Plus, if I lived say 20 miles north of Orlando the train ride would be approx. 1 hour when you factored in all the stops along the way. That more than doubles my daily commute time.
AMEN, brother! Preach it!!!
