Please Buy Made In America For 2 Important Reasons
1. Jobs for fellow Americans, try to keep our country healthy

2. Reduce the outrageous trade deficit

Every little bit helps

Especially when buying this Christmas.

Thanks and love you all

Good luck with that. Try finding a flag not made in china. I spent all afternoon, went to depot, lowes, ace, and finally sutherlands and still went home with my chinese made american flag.

Didn't you hear? Having no jobs is not the problem in America. It's the people that have no jobs getting $50 a month in food stamps that is killing your country.

I don't know exactly how that make sense, but people here assure me food stamps is the cause of all that ails the USA.

Yeah...pretty slim choices. Fascism, drone attacks, and ignorance seem to primary things made in usa.

Re: Please Buy Made In America For 2 Important Reasons
This isn't directed at you, OP, so no offense, but I find it interesting that back when America DID make things, and made them well, the mantra in America was, "It's the free market. Consumers buy the best product at the cheapest price. And we (America) make those well-built, affordable products."

But now that we don't make hardly anything in America anymore, and other countries, in some categories, make as good or better products than we do (Germany & Japan for cars & electronics, for example, just to name two), NOW our "patriotism" and "nationalism" is appealed to, and the free market principles of consumers buying the best product at the best price have all but been forgotten.

Are we a nation based on sound economic principles, or are we only "fair weather" free marketers -- promoting the free market ONLY when we manufacture the best product (a rare thing these days)?

What is it we make the best? Things shaped like dicks; dildos, bullets, rockets and bombs.

Maybe the problem is with the free market ideal then.

If it is driving people to purchase things from outside the country to the degree that we are a highly-unemployed, services-based country and no longer manufacturing much, I think that, yes, it's probably the free market ideal that is wrong, being as it is ruining our ability to find jobs and be independent of other countries.

But, my my my, that goes hand in hand with capitalism, where you try and make the most off the least possible (in this case, getting the most goods for the least cost).

That makes me scum though, right?

'cause I don't bow to capitalism and free market?

Nah, just a realist.

I buy american whenever it is possible to do so.
