Not really, in Germany they have no speed limit on some roads. They even have banked corners :)

In the UK most people are dangerous enough at 70 mph (our current limit) im guessing America is the same!

165 mph is my record, very scary!

I knew that. And I think it's psychotic.

Depends on where it is at. I think it should not be an immediate jump to 130, perhaps raising the limit by 5mph a year, or something similar.

That speed would only be on interstates in the US anyway, and is perfectly fine for the midwestern states, I think. Besides, even in the bigger cities, they like to keep traffic flowing. I don't know how many times I have been driving on the Ring around Atlanta doing speeds near that, along with everyone else.

Granted, Americans are not used to that speed in most areas, so it needs to be a gradual increase, not an instant near doubling of the current speed limit. Cars brakes are much better these days, and with the advent of lane departure warning and passive radar, it is going to be even safer to drive on interstates.

As bumnut, mentioned, Germany has no speed limit on most parts of the Autobahn, their interstate, pretty much. Also, in the US, Montana interstates have no speed limit.
