Why Conservatives Love Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA)

Tesla Motors is the Poster Child for Capitalism

tsladealershipDespite all the love for Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) lately, there are still those who want nothing more than to silence this highly-disruptive superstar. Particularly the Texas Automobile Dealers Association, which apparently hates the idea of a free market and healthy competition.

In response to Tesla having the audacity to want to sell its cars directly to the consumer, instead of going through a middle-man, Bill Wolters, the president of the Texas Automobile Dealers Association, told the press that this kind of thing happens all the time, stating. . .

“Someone wants an exception to the franchise laws. If we made an exception for everybody that showed up in the legislature, before long the integrity of the entire franchise system is in peril.”

Yes, because nothing says integrity like a car dealership.

Give me a break!

This is about nothing more than a prejudice towards electric cars in states where lawmakers tend to be the types of knuckle-dragging fake conservatives who think treating all that God has created as their own personal toilets is somehow a conservative value.

Of course, nothing could be further from the truth.

Look, electric cars offer an environmentally-friendlier option, and these guys can't stand it. Yet they'll still talk a good game about free markets, just so long as it doesn't interfere with their own personal agendas of complacency and ignorance.

As a libertarian and free-market advocate, I find the dealership fight against Tesla to be little more than an exercise in bureaucratic buffoonery. And to accept such ridiculous behavior is to accept the pitfalls of unnecessary regulations and an over-burdensome government.

Truth is, conservatives who embrace healthy competition should actually love Tesla, as this is a company that fully demonstrates the strength and benefits of capitalism.
