Back in the mid 1970's with the oil embargo, both the U.S. and France were at a crossroads. France chose nuclear and Jimmy Carter and the Democrats chose coal. The Democrats have a proven track record of being dead wrong on energy, why on Earth would anyone let them do it to us again this time with solar? It's a really safe bet to do the opposite of what they want to succeed.

"One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back." - Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark
