We wouldn't have cars without trains. Do you even understand how the advent of engines in trains/caboose helped bring forth the automobile boom?
How efficient do you think the transportation of goods that we all use on a daily basis would be if we were shipping them in automobiles.
Good grief this is some of the silliest diatribe I've ever read.
