You could physically build a vacuum tube-based maglev train where the tube is at some depth in the ocean to avoid surface issues and plate boundary problems.
Yeah, in theory, you could design it to be neutrally buoyant at some depth, and you could make it thick enough to withstand the pressure while keeping the interior at survivable pressure levels. As for whether such a tube would be flexible enough to accommodate the two ends getting closer together or farther apart by three or four inches per year, though, I have my doubts.

Did you know Hillary took nearly $600 million in bribes while Secretary of State? Haven't seen the media focus on that, and that is something most people would think is bad.
And Trump bragged about paying bribes.
It's hard to know which is worse. I wouldn't hire either of them to mow my lawn. I'd rather choose a President by random number generator than elect either of these choices. We'd have a better chance of picking a good candidate.
You forgot a few bills that she sponsored but didn't successfully pass, like the Family Entertainment Protection Act....
3) Overrode expert opinion and ordered military intervention into Libya that led to the downfall of Gaddafi
Last I checked, the Secretary of State has zero authority to order anything. Perhaps you misspelled "Obama"?
All snark aside, she gave an opinion; others gave different opinions. Obama made the call. Right or wrong, the blame rests there. This is not to say that I trust Clinton's judgment in these matters, though. On the other hand, I explicitly distrust the judgment of the sort of person who would ask why we shouldn't use nuclear weapons. So there's that.
I rather suspect he won't release his tax records because he's the pot calling the kettle black. My gut says that if he didn't have anything to hide, he wouldn't need that bit of extraordinary privacy (extraordinary for a presidential candidate, anyway).
This is one of those rare exceptions where that phrase seems pretty accurate, particularly given how he has bragged about having politicians in his pocket. And, if convicted of bribery, that's grounds for automatic impeachment. Just saying.
Air travel should be something that you do when you're crossing an ocean, because trains over water (and subduction zones) are physically impractical, and ships are too slow to be practical.
That said, we badly need a high speed rail network in the U.S.; Amtrak is kind of fun to ride, but it takes three days each way to get across the country. As such, it is a luxury that few can afford on a regular basis.
We have perfectly good helicopters today, but you don't want one on your street. Just a few basic physical problems that won't be solved without antigravity.
Just as soon as the Moller Skycar is ready. It'll be real soon now, right? He's only been working on it for about 50 years.

Well there's your mistake right there.
