Blocking Tesla’s Selling Style Is Unconstitutional

The electric automaker, Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA  ) is radically changing the way cars are made and the way those cars are actually sold. It's that latter point I believe is getting as much bad press as reality show "Duck Dynasty" has seen in recent days, but is it really warranted when it comes to Tesla? I don't believe it is. Frankly, what they are doing is stealing a page out of Michael Dell's direct to consumer sales playbook and that should have states like Texas, Arizona, Maryland reconsidering letting the company sells its cars in their states. Even Ohio auto dealers are suing to stop Tesla's direct to consumer approach. However, the way we live today is quite different than even just a few years back thanks to advances in technology so auto franchises should not get special privileges to sell cars anymore, right?

Companies like Facebook and Twitter turned traditional publishing on its head in recent years yet those names have been globally embraced. Therefore Tesla may be getting a bad rap largely because the sector it is aiming to revolutionize (autos) is largely fueled by Big Oil.

What's next

    Tesla is basically having a union problem. The auto dealers are basically a union. Unions use government to protect them from competition. Blame the government or blame the unions, it doesn't matter, restrictions on trade that promote anti-competitiveness should be unconstitutional. Our country and all economies are based on trade, mess with trade and bad things happen. Which is our country's biggest problem, non-competitiveness.
