Post-Reagan America doesn't have the ability to consider projects on this scale, but of course one of the things a better rail system would allow is the transportation of million of exoskeleton-clad UN soldiers across the US, as well as moving tens of millions of anti-NAU activists and sympathizers to open-air holding facilities somewhere near Chicago.

[Note that I'm not actually telling to go out and blow up all the roads leading into your town, although of course those have military applications too]

I would say post-Reagan American doesn't have the "vision" to consider projects on this scale. The big American projects of the past have not all been done in times of plenty, and the U.S. is hardly a poor country, despite how we choose to see ourselves.
