What Happened to Rail in Our Cities?

The ugly story about how General Motors Corporation (GMC) bought up and shut down the trolley systems across the country in order to force the public to have to purchase their cars.

Isn't it time to rethink the entire global transit system?  Isn't it time that we converted the war production  machine to help us dump the cars which keep so many people in debt to the banksters and the oil corporations?
