New America

Use stimulus money to... 1. Create a comprehensive network of high speed rail lines in low atmosphere tubes for commuting and commercial use. This technology is faster, cheaper and more efficient than air, truck or ship travel and building it would provide jobs. 2. Rewire the US for 'the Grid' (the new internet created by CERN) to upgrade our communication and commerce network and, again, create jobs. 3. Rework the electrical ...more »

Create a two way Rail system that is owned by the United States

The railroad should be an extension of the interstate highway system that allows all companies and individuals equal access. If you believe in free trade you probably believe in free interstate commerce. Allowing a single company to take precedence over another because they own the road interferes in interstate commerce. By building a rail system that isn't owned by any one company we remove a companies right to place ...more »

Rewire the Electrical Grid

Use stimulus money to rework the electrical grid so that it can withstand the 'ups and downs' associated with many alternative energies as well as wiring on streets and highways for low cost recharge parking spots and recharge stations - more jobs and an upgraded grid prepared to handle new energies and electric vehicles and a high speed rail network. Good transportation infrastructure is the backbone of a strong free-market ...more »

End the TSA in private and local airports.

End Transportation Security Administration security at local and private airports. These airports should provide their own security utilizing the open market. They should be held accountable to federal standards when applicable, but they need to balance their security, service, and cost against market allowances.

High Speed Rail

Create a comprehensive network of high speed rail lines in low atmosphere tubes for commuting and commercial use. This technology is faster, cheaper and more efficient than air, truck or ship travel and building it would provide jobs. Apparently, in vacuum tubes, trains - mag-lev trains can go over 4000 mph! NY to LA in less than an hour? Talk about infrastructure improvements! By the way, if it were possible, I would ...more »

Carryout Fuel Tanks (gradually improving our infrastructure)

One of the problems we're faced with when trying to convert to cars that use hydrogen fuel is a catch-22 kind of thing - people won't buy the cars until they know there are enough gas stations within convenient reach, and gas stations won't add hydrogen fuel pumps until there are enough cars out there to make them profitable. The solution might be to phase them in. Step 1 - Create briefcase-shaped fuel tanks that ...more »

Alternative Transportation

NOTE –I’m not an environmentalist or tree hugger. This just makes sense. Simply put, current roads are built and designed for vehicles that use some type of fuel, gas, natural gas, electricity, etc… These roads are “mostly” funded through fuel taxes. Cut all outside federal funding for roads designed only for use of fuel based vehicles and divert all funds to Foot / Bike paths or “Rails to Trails” programs like the ...more »

Promote Bicycle Usage with Infrastructure Investments and Tax Credits

Since the middle of the 20th Century, the United States has become a largely suburban nation with massive road networks dependent on auto transport. This infrastructure creates a series of problems: 1) Ongoing needs for enormous investments in road construction and maintenance 2) Tens of thousands of annual traffic deaths, plus many more injuries 3) Billions of dollars in lost productivity from time that workers spend ...more »
