I've found that it is almost universal that the "saver" uses less energy and resources than the "spender" does. I am an ardent conservationist (I like the word "environmentalist", but it has been hijacked by the far left, otherwise I could easily be one) and when someone asks me what are the best things they can do to save our environment, one of my main recommendations is "save money". Think about it, buying a smaller, more fuel efficient car, generally saves money ... and saves resources. Same for buying a smaller home, and same for downsizing other consumer desires.I don't think it has anything to do with liberal or conservative (two terms that have been so distorted in recent years, the conservatives losing their values of responsibility, and the liberals losing their values of freedom). When it comes to individuals, those who spend less, on average, generally use less energy.And cut it out with the "grasping Republican" crap, there are grasping folks of all types, Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Communist, Socialist, etc.
