Let's have a look on how the US economy functions:
Every family owns 2-4 cars/SUV's/trucks
The auto industry banks on this fact.
For these cars to run we need roads
The construction companies come in here.
For these cars to runs we need gas stations.
This is where the gas companies come in.
The gas companies need crude oil.
This is where Halliburton/Texaco comes in.
These companies need oil fields.
This is where Iraq/Mid-East and war comes in.
You need weapons to wage a war.
This is where Lockheed/ Raytheon and other defense companies come in.
The defense companies need war for there sales to pick up.
This is where Fox news comes in.
The defense companies need more war for more profits.
This is where CIA and military comes in.
The CIA and military needs gas and energy for its massive infrastructure.
The gas companies come in again. ~sigh
If we built the trains, we would need less cars (poof goes the auto industry).
If we needed less cars, poof goes the gas/oil industry.
Then poof goes the defense industry...
And, down goes the Economy...
And, down goes the country...
O...For the want of a nail a kingdom was lost...
