Don't wire it. Get an electrician to wire it. You may not have a stat that's compatible with electric baseboard and that could be hazardous to you health.
If YOU want change, YOU have to first change.
If you are waiting for the 'other guy' to change first, just remember, you're the 'other guy's' other guy. To continue to expect real change when you keep acting the same way as always, is folly. Won't happen. Real change will only happen when a majority of the people change the way they vote!
