If this is true, and everything is as it seems, it isn’t surprising. I hope these dealers, if they were making ends meet and doing business for Chrysler, raise righteous hell. I won’t be buying a Chrysler product.
When Chrysler dealership closures were announced there didn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to the selection process. Profitable dealerships were told to close while less profitable ones were spared. It seemed kind of odd, to say the least. Thanks to Doug Ross (via Gateway Pundit) the truth may have come out.
To quickly review the situation, I took all dealer owners whose names appeared more than once in the list. And, of those who contributed to political campaigns, every single one had donated almost exclusively to GOP candidates. While this isn’t an exhaustive review, it does have some ominous implications if it can be verified.
However, I also found additional research online at Scribd (author unknown), which also appears to point to a highly partisan decision-making process.
It makes a lot more sense now. So much for living in the land of the free. Welcome to the USSA, comrades.
Update Doug Ross continued digging into this matter and the evidence is mounting that the shuttering of these dealers was politically motivated. Read about it here.
Update 2: Read more at Gateway Pundit. Now that the GOP/red county dealerships have been shut down Chrysler announced they will be adding dealerships. The only thing surprising about this is that it’s so blatant. Didn’t they think anyone would notice? Anyone? Anyone? Buehler?
