CAR DEALER PRAYER

Is this what Obama calls “Redistribution of Wealth” ?????    Many call
it un-American and illegal.

A LETTER TO AMERICA FROM A DODGE DEALER

Written by George C. Joseph
Thursday, 21 May 2009
My name is George C. Joseph.  I am the sole owner of Sunshine
Dodge-Isuzu, a family owned and operated business in Melbourne ,
Florida .   My family bought and paid for this automobile franchise 35
years ago in 1974.
I am the second generation to manage this business.

We currently employ 50+ people and before the economic slowdown we
employed over 70 local people.  We are active in the community and the
local chamber of commerce.   We deal with several dozen local vendors
on a day to day basis and many more during a month.    All depend on
our business for part of their livelihood.

We are financially strong with great respect in the market place and
community.  We have strong local presence and stability.  I work every
day the store is open, nine to ten hours a day.
I know most of our customers and all our employees.   Sunshine Dodge is my life.

On Thursday, May 14, 2009 I was notified that my Dodge franchise, that
we purchased, will be taken away from my family on June 9, 2009 –
without compensation – and given to another dealer at no cost to them.

My new vehicle inventory consists of 125 vehicles with a financed
balance of 3 million dollars.  This inventory becomes impossible to
sell with no factory incentives beyond June 9, 2009.   Without the
Dodge franchise we can no longer sell a new Dodge as “new,” nor will
we be able to do any warranty service work.

Additionally, my Dodge parts inventory, (approximately $300,000) is
virtually worthless without the ability to perform warranty service.
There is no offer from Chrysler to buy back the vehicles or parts
inventory.

Our facility was recently totally renovated at Chrysler’s insistence,
incurring a multi-million dollar debt
in the form of a mortgage at Sun Trust Bank.

HOW IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CAN THIS HAPPEN?

THIS IS A PRIVATE BUSINESS NOT A GOVERNMENT ENTITY.

This is beyond imagination!    My business is being stolen from me
through NO FAULT OF OUR OWN.
We did NOTHING wrong..

This atrocity will most likely force my family into bankruptcy.
This will also cause our 50+ employees to be unemployed.   How will
they provide for their families?
This is a total economic disaster.

HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN IN A FREE MARKET ECONOMY IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ?

I beseech your help, and look forward to your reply.   Thank you.

Sincerely,

George C. Joseph
President & Owner
Sunshine Dodge-Isuzu
Melbourne, Florida

  1. As we leave God out and proceed to act out the insanity that is humanity without God, horror and destruction results. Pray for our country and our world.

    • Floyd Easterman says:

      Those whom make such decisions to undermine fellow citizens of the United States of America, are traitors to our country and it’s prosperity. They are men without conscience and void of any relationship with God. Another analogy would be they are the equivalent of a cancer in the the body. Christians need to stand strong on the very principles that established the United States of American, because the only strength we have is in the Word of God and knowing who we are in the Lord!
