Still, the country needs a major overhaul in all facets of the infrastructure. Trump likes to build. I say let him build. Learning from past mistakes and the history of crooked business practices should help steer things in a positive direction. Benefiting the public more.

I love the propaganda methods used to sell the public on building a major freeway and toll road system. Using promotional films and inside influence from the military and major industries a massive propaganda squeeze was pushed forward by the Eisenhower administration. The highway trust fund was enacted using the gas tax. Half the proceeds were used to build the interstate highway system. Even the clergy was called in to sell it. Children weren't immune to the advertisements either; all of it too make the world a safer place. I've heard that before.

Considering Trump is planning to tackle the infrastructure soon it would behoove us all the learn as much as possible about how it all works. Its many subsidiaries and contractors working to influence the transportation control laws, ordinances from the counties and states, and ultimately leading to the federal governments control methods....and beyond! Which mostly benefits the money men anyways. The public is always secondary when it comes to public transportation. Modern infrastructure is what America needs. Whatever Trump plans will last for decades to come. I'm wondering if he can pull off a major building project to reach the ages...
