We Want Our Highspeed Rail!

According to this article, we Californians might have to wait another couple of years to decided if we want to think about having a high speed rail system from LA to SF. For anyone who spent last weekend (like we did) slogging across the state (and you must have been there; the roads were packed), it should be obvious that this rail line would be a good thing.

(And this, coming from a card carrying libertarian, [if not a completely dedicated one].)


  1. Are libertarians opposed to railroads?

  2. No, not opposed to railroads, just government funding of such. The party line is that if the market sees a need, then it will fill the need.

    Certainly, we should think carefully before spending $34,000,000,000 of the public's money.
