    I would like to suggest the creation of a "Electric Vehicle Direct Sales Consumer Advocacy". What I'm recommending is setting up a crowd-funding site to solicit donations for the express purpose of establishing an organization to create online video content advocating the positive aspects of direct sales. I'm not suggesting a lobbying organization, but rather amplifying the voice of consumer's, to openly confront the past and on-going efforts of NADA.

    The following is excerpted from a Tesla Motors blog:

    "We'll continue to focus on providing an amazing experience to all customers, so that they can become our advocates and help us accelerate the transition to sustainable transportation."

    Tesla Motors as an organization has a inalienable right to freedom of commerce. As consumers we possess the right to spend our money as we choose, unfettered by rent-seeking dealership organizations.
