Christie is far from being a republican no matter what letter is next to his name. He's cooked and done anyway. Has no shot at the White House. Hope NJ throws the bum out too.

Republicans only believe in the free market when it benefits them


A regulated market is not a free market.

A free market would not force Tesla to deal through a middleman.

actually what Christie is doing isn't "free market" or "de regulation"
its exactly the opposite.

Nice broad brush you are painting there with OP.

Christie is a typical corporatist neo con globalist pig. But left vs right paradigm and broad labels are much more fun eh?

By the looks of things maybe he should consider banning double cheese burgers instead

Living in NJ for the last 7 years, the state has a lot wrong... politics, economics, nepotisim, police corruption, etc.
I think the gov is the Pillsbury doughboy although he is not the thief I think Corzine was.
Having said that, Tesla was TOLD up front that to sell cars in jersey, they would EITHER have to franchise
OR lobby to change the law. Tesla did NEITHER. Now they cry... bovine defecation. If you want in on the game,
your obligated to play by the rules.

>people think a completely free market can exist.
>adam smith knew well enough to seperate "capitalism" from "free market".
>regulation is only bad when it's used to prop up monopolies (like the East India Tea Company)
>regulation serves a useful purpose when it comes to keeping the market in order, and preventing anti-competetive business practices, or encouraging the circulation/exchange of money.
This action by governor Christie is merely the misuse of regulation.

Beware the law of three.


That's a Wiccan saying if I'm not mistaken. You do reap what you sow but there's no real "law of three". Just something someone made up. What goes around eventually does come around, though....

or are you talking about Gov. Christie's Law of Three? (3 Big Macs, 3 Large orders of Fries, 3 Whoppers)?

Can't they just sell the cars used? Or sell out of a neighboring state? If people want these cars they will find a way ay to get one regardless. But this is complete B.S.

I know grouping things makes life easier, but we have to stop grouping politicians by party. At least whatever party they claim to be. If republicans are for X,Y, and Z. Someone like Christie is either not a republican or republicans don't really stand for X, Y, and Z. The only reason to get mad, is you believed the hype.
