Corruption, American-style... Here's a great example of the sort of corruption that pervades American politics. We don't suffer from the kinds of corruption that are rampant in Russia, India, China, and the Middle East – but we have it nonetheless. There are many examples besides car dealers – cable companies, many professions that require licenses, etc. All of these have common characteristics: they protect the incumbents at the expense of consumers. All also assiduously avoid the sunlight: they don't want consumers to understand how they're being bilked – because, naturally, that would end the happy days of free money for them.
Tesla is doing a public service by exposing the corrupt crony capitalism in the states where its running into this sort of thing. It's not motivated by altruism on their part, of course, but it's a public service nonetheless...
