2. Yes I watched the video. I believe that you are making an assumption though that all electric companies will be government owned, which makes it sound socialistic. I believe that you could still cool your home to a comfortable level, but not able to crank up the a/c to bring the temperature down to levels in the mid 60's with your a/c not running at peak. It is sort of like a grocery store that has a product on sale, but limits the amount the consumer is able to purchase at one time. If all electric companies go to government owned, then yes I would be worried and would not like it.
I don't know what will happen during the next four years. I hope that things will turn around, but I know it will take some time to dig us out of the mess that the last administration left this country in.
If these so-called bailouts continue, which is nothing more than the federal government buying up the private sector, the government will own the electric companies as well!
Although I did not care for GWB's 2nd term, I don't believe he caused this mess all by himself. COLLECTIVELY both democrats AND republicans brought this nation to where it is. The last 20 years has been nothing but bigger government and bigger debt. And so far in Obama's first 100 days in office, he is using the same play book. It is going to take generations to pay back the debt that has been racked up in the last 6-8 months....IF it ever gets paid back.
I can honestly say unless there is some serious reform in both parties, I will never vote Republican or Democrat again.
