This slideshow presentation is titled, Uncle Sam please give US back our trains for Christmas. The “US” is a double entendre for us the collective, and the U.S, the United States. In this video I urge “Uncle Sam” to give the people BACK control of the nation's vast railway system. The history of the American train shows how governments value profit over the people and the planet. Nobody should have to own a car in order to live a fruitful life. Uplifting passenger railways will reduce plane and car emissions. Freight is old school and benefits few. High speed rail will stimulate our economy. The United States has the capability to return to its former glory –– we have stagnated. Trains will give the people a fighting chance. WE want them now!
