    Shit, if I get to pick who I buy long distance service from, surely I should in theory be able to pick who I buy power from.

I live in one of those cool states where the republicans are trying to ensure that consumer access to renewable energy is as limited as possible. God I hope we skullfuck these nihilists this fall. Just saw that a Trump +20 district in PA is now considered a tossup in a special election. You'd think that 50 years of scorched earth politics would catch up to you sooner or later, but I'm not counting my chickens. I used to think that the only thing the GOP was correct on was their hawkish stance on the USSR. They've even screwed that up now. The environmental shit is the worst though, since so much of it is permanent. We need to force both parties to pay attention to it (Clinton pretty much never uttered the phrase "climate change"), and that starts with kicking like 90% of GOPers out of congress.
