OK I'll go ahead and start this vanity, because I think it's a topic whose time has come:
We spent billions more last year than we took in.
Billions. On all sorts of junk.
Every country in the world is building factories, selling their stuff to us.
China in particular, is selling us all sorts of junk.
It is time for us to sell, not buy.
Sell stuff. Sell stuff made here.
Thanks for listening. :)
Because it is time.
Let it collapse.
Buy only foreign.
Ok, I’ll only buy american firearms and ammo. I’m not buying anything else.
Buy nothing. As little as possible.
This is exactly the debate I want to have.
Thanks for your post.
You and a bunch of other 'go galt' nuts need to grow up.
Is there anything remaining that’s Made In USA? Probably fit on a 3x5 card. I always check, and buy it if I need it, but I don’t see much out there anymore.
The Vietnamese government has been trying unsuccessfully to clamp down on China with its fake products.
I would imagine this is going on WORLDWIDE.
Does the "Made In America" tag really mean anything now here in the US?
I don't know.
I have enough glocks. time for some more smith and wesson revolvers.
In the real world, with a family, growing children, autos and maintenance, you have little choice. It’s all made overseas. It’s then imported and assembled here so they can stamp on it “Made in America”.
Stop buying. Full consumer boycott this Christmas. Deprive them of revenue and punish the Democrat supporting retailers.
Blue Eagle worked great in the 30s./sarc
Try to when I can.
Last hing I bought was Maytag portable dishwasher.
“Assembled in America”.
Parts were missing.
If I know something is union made I won't buy that for sure. I don't want my dollars buying votes for the left.
Join Operation Frugal. You don't need to buy anymore junk anyway.
Yep, I don’t buy Union-made crap.
Keep purchases to an absolute minimum.
Whenever I buy American, there’s a mexican selling me this stuff in spanish. F that.
Go screw yourself. I WILL NOT BUY AMERICAN!!
Funny, I have been thinking of this all day. I will only buy the things I need according to the best VALUE to me. I can only assume up front (without talking specifics) that American made products are automatically overpriced due the the fact that the LABOR is overpriced and that is passed on to the consumers. So, NO, I will not pay union labor wage rates for the products I buy unless the quality and features are worth it to me. Any tie goes to the foreign product because the unions’ modus operandi.
I’m with you.
The thing is, people in the USA vote. The same number of votes are cast more or less, every four years.
The more people who are out of work, the more people vote democrat.
We lost the last election. If things get worse, we will lose the next one by more.
I say work. Work and spend.
Give me a good reason why I should buy American?
America is dead.
What we live in now I don’t recognize.
