    The main reason I've got one is medical: 24/7/365 oxygen patient with sleep apnea as well. Constant electricity is a must, especially since the emergency backup tank only lasts for 24 hours & my supplier is an hour away.

    Now, as to taxing the wealthy & ending the ridiculous loopholes they use to dodge paying taxes, I hope that happens & it would be about f'ing time. When in the heck did tax evasion become a patriotic thing among the RW? Our ancestors thought supporting the nation was patriotic & paid willingly...I hope that becomes patriotic again.
