Which brings up what this nation has. Our capitalist democracy has a built in socialism lung that provides just the right amount of cash flow to funds from the government for our military - education - infrastructure - states - public welfare - medical/social security. To then vote for Democratic Socialist hating "capitalism" is voting for somebody to do your thinking for you = loss of freedom. These Democratic Socialists have furrowed into our schools and Universities. They design what they want us to have and how much and what to think through media and the next generation who are indoctrinated coming out of colleges. So very clever. So very threatening.GE is by far the largest corporate welfare recipient in America. Their extremely overpowered AC6000CW road engines would never pass any FRA or EPA emissions test and two years gobbling diesel fuel, polluting population congested freight and worst high capacity passenger corridors and blowing turbos finally had to reconfigure every engine back the REVO AC4400 engines to meet FRA and EPA specs. Guess who foot the bill for this fiasco? UP, BNSF and CSX who were duped. GE actually had the gall to whine to Congress that they lost millions to reconfigure their own mistake, let's not mention the GE salesmen vigorously recommending that these beast only be run as a two engine lashup. So now the railroad had two lashed up twin turbocharged 12 thousand horse-powered engines pulling 80 car combined consist. Once the bean counters realized just one engine could pull a 1.5 mile double-stack train with just one AC6000CW and later still pull a 1.5 mile double-stack train with just one reconfigured AC4400 engine GE said if any more turbos blow they would no longer honor the warranty because the engines would strain them on single prime moves instead of their recommended lashups. Congress guaranteed GE that any loss they endured they would be compensated.
Can anybody spell "Welfare Fraud"?
