There's a strong rumble floating around on the net about the possibility that the Gov't. may be dictating to Chrysler the dealerships earmarked to go away as those dealership owners who donate regularly to the Republican party. Nazi Germany, anyone?!
I've done some research and this seems like it may be the case. Auto dealers, as a whole, give 2 to 5 times more to Republican campaigns, as those who give to the Democrat's campaigns. One of the dealers in Las Vegas that is closing is owned by a U.S. Army veteran who gives campaign money exclusively to Republican causes.
