Five states have now banned Tesla, a fully electric car, from selling their cars directly to the public. Is this big money corrupting more of our government policies or is it justified?

Straight-up bought and paid for corrupt politicians. There is no legitimate reason to discourage factory direct sales of anything.

The issue is that these laws protecting auto dealers have been in place for decades. They are not new laws specifically aimed at Tesla. These five states can't allow Tesla until the laws are changed and that can take awhile.

That shouldn't take more than the first two minutes for a vote the next legislative session, and a few seconds for a signature. It's a no-brainer. Regardless of when it originally became law, my characterization of how it did is accurate.

So buying a car can get you thrown in jail. what a time to be alive. May as well elect Hitler in 2016

I'm not sure if the consumer would be held legally responsible for anything but I'm sure tesla will be slapped with a gargantuan fine if they continue their same sales model.

Corporation corruption. They don't want competition so they pay off the political crooks to vote like they want.

They can't even make up a reasonable excuse for this. They should go to jail.
