Buy American (simple vanity)
(vanity) | November 9th, 20122 | (self)

Posted on 11/09/2012 6:41:02 PM PST by Cringing Negativism Network

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.

Just saying.

Sell stuff. Sell stuff made here.

Thanks for listening. :)

Nothing like cutting your own throat, and that of other Americans.

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.

When I was in Vietnam a while back and in the markets in Saigon there were products being sold there with the logo "LL BEEN" (instead LL BEAN) and a fake tag "Made In US"

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.

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.

I'm not buying anything I don't absolutely, without a doubt, have to. Isn't it time the tax payers kept their hard earned money for their own families instead?

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.

It's impossible not to buy anything but when you must buy try to buy Red. If it comes from a Blue State or Blue City, look else where.

Keep purchases to an absolute minimum.

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.

American.

Give me a good reason why I should buy American?

America is dead.

What we live in now I don’t recognize.
