I love it how right-wingers try to couch their stupid resistance to energy conservation measures as a struggle for freedom... more like freedumb, if you ask me. Of course, the freedom to use inefficient appliances places one in greater thrall to corporations and hostile foreign regimes awash in petrodollars. I believe the brilliant songsters of Cake put it best when they sang:
Excess ain't rebellion, you're drinkin' what they're sellin'
That pretty much summarizes the right-wing authoritarians' id-based "freedumb".
How about a nice serving of Cake?
Now, that cake is no lie!
