Paybacks are a bitch

Doug Ross finds a correlation between whether a Chrysler dealer supported Obama and whether or not he is getting shut down.

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.

Consider the partial list of Chrysler dealership owners, listed below. You’ll notice that all were opponents of Barack Obama, most through sponsorship of GOP candidates and organizations, but a handful through Barack’s Democrat rivals (Hillary Clinton and John Edwards in 2008, for example).

If there is any political causality to this correlation, Obama is going to feel some heat. He will come out unscathed, of course, after throwing someone “responsible” under the bus. Nevertheless, it should be interesting.

    Forget the potential political scandal for now. Look at the economic consequences which could be hugely detrimental. The US has been the beneficiary of a lot of international investment because of past performance, s stable government, rule of law with regards to property rights, and relative transparency. With the coronation of his Obamaness, we’ve seen legally binding contracts broken and assets seized just in these first few months. All this before you get to the increasing advance of intrusive socialist government and Chicago-style graft and venality.

    Only one question arising from these issues need to be asked after absorbing the above information: If you were an international investor(or entrepeneur), seeing what’s going on with the Obama Chicago-style thugocracy, would you invest(or start a business) in the US?

    If international investors and entrepeneurs feel that their assets, property, and money are vulnerable to the types of seizure and corruption they wanted to have their assets avoid in their own countries then expect far less capital coming into the US and a de-accessioning of foreign owned assets. Add to this the real possibility that skilled foreigners(the type of immigrants the US actually benefits from) may not come to the US or leave for better and more transparent opportunities abroad and the next four years and beyond might be more economically devastating than previously thought.

    This should be a headline on every US newspaper. As a now government-owned entity, both of GM and Chrysler should be subject to Federal law regarding bias. Republican senators and congresscritters should be buzzing about this.
