Here is an example of unmitigated propaganda that appeals to bigotry and prejudice:
Gov Christie has not “killed” the electric car in New Jersey. What’s he done with Tesla is said, in effect, if you’re making money off the citizens of New jersey then you damn well better be creating jobs in New Jersey by creating a support structure i.e., car dealerships. And not only create jobs but pay taxes so the people of New Jersey can have a better life.
The people that are signing the petition think they’re doing a good thing with their good intentions, which is the path to hell. But what they are doing is eliminating jobs and preventing more from being created. These are the same people who denounce greedy corporations. Where is their outrage at Tesla for wanting to keep costs low by not creating jobs and paying taxes but yet reaping astronomical profits?
Where is their outrage at the states that have already enacted such a law so that those states reap the taxes to pay for things like education and mental health?
This is a put-up job by Democrats to knock Christie out of the 2016 Presidential race because he polls better then any recognized (Hillary Clinton) Democratic candidate.
New Jersey has no problem with electric cars being sold in New Jersey . . . . as long as it creates jobs, pays taxes and makes New Jersey a better place for the people of New Jersey instead of blatant greed behind a mask of do-gooding.
This is nothing less then the side of politics that people hate
