• Invest an additional 2.5 trillion dollars above current levels over ten years in rail, airports, bridges, roads, seaports, wind energy, solar energy, geothermal energy, battery efficiency, the electrical grid, broadband, water, sewer, and much more. 1.5 trillion should be designated as matching funds paired against 1.5 trillion in additional state and local infrastructure investment above current state and local levels. This will total the 4 trillion dollar investment that is realistically necessary to rebuild our infrastructure. Furthermore, 200 billion of the federal infrastructure investment funds should bypass state governments and go as revenue sharing directly to county and local governments.
  • Engage in accelerated convergence and/or development of the Three Internets outlined by Jeremy Rifkin in his book and video entitled The Third Industrial Revolution. (Paraphrased by Smith): (1) a digital communication internet which has matured and is converging with the two following Internets (2) a lateral carbon-free renewable energy digital distribution Internet with a smart digital electricity grid, and (3) a smart digital road, rail, water, and air transportation logistic Internet. Mr. Rifkin’s assertion that such an approach will create massive employment and will pay for itself in the form of huge savings is a logical and solid conclusion.
  • Smith dreams of a high-speed rail system throughout the United States that connects urban and rural America – a bullet train from New York to Philadelphia, to Lancaster, to Chicago, to San Francisco, with other stops in between. A train with passenger and commercial cars that will economically jet 11th Congressional District agricultural products to large urban areas across America.
  • The above approach will result in higher hourly wages and larger incomes for Americans.
