The transformation of the GOP from a conservative party to a radical party is almost complete. In the latest move, three Republican governors (in Texas, Arizona, and now New Jersey) have unilaterally kicked Tesla Motors, the electric car company, out of their states. In New Jersey, Chris Christie’s order was to prevent direct sales of automobiles in the state, now all automobiles must be sold through independent dealers.
The corruption evident is that such protectionism isn’t being done to protect a native industry. New Jersey is not what anyone might call an “auto producing state,” instead what is being protected are the donations to their campaign funds from auto dealers, oil companies, the Koch brothers, etc. Sound familiar?
