You say you're for treating people equally. . . then you say there's nothing wrong with giving preferential treatment to your neighbor over out of state people? That's cute. Every company in the world is run by and for people. . . and go read the Citizens United opinion. . . sorry, companies are people (hence the decision that your system of inequality was stricken down on equal protection grounds). You can't say you support equality, and then support a system of inequality, and be taken seriously, or logically etc. . .
