I believe that restricting auto sales to "authorized dealerships" is restricting the individual's right to purchase goods and services at the best price and for the best product. Unless there is a public need to restrict sales for safety or health reasons, there should be no restriction on auto sales to "State or Local Authorized" dealerships. This is simply setting up a monopoly for auto sales that should not be sustained.
