Tesla is battling dealers state by state over direct-to-consumer sales. Auto dealers in Ohio, New York, Minnesota, Georgia and elsewhere in the past year have fought Tesla, arguing that independent retailers are better for shoppers and vehicle owners. Texas dealers successfully backed a law setting the nation’s toughest restrictions on Tesla. Arizona, Colorado and Virginia also imposed limits.

Ford and GM dont want another more successful American car company. Politicians can never be trusted. This spells a short life for Tesla Motors. Tesla will lose its critical mass if these laws are expanded to cover major states like NY and TX. The parts supply chain will become threatened. French and English auto manufacturers all failed in the states without proper parts supply chains.

This is not a Democrat v. Republican issue. This is a matter of corruption in many high offices. The public good is not being looked after at all by the likes of Chris Christie, and he is not alone in doing the damage to our nation.
