2. Is your purchase electronic in nature and unnecessary for your health? (i.e. television, MP3 device, etc.)
3. Is your purchase for the consumption of non-renewable resources? (i.e. gasoline, oil, etc.)
4. Will your purchase ultimately prove to be worth the cutbacks in education, health care and other services on the federal level?
