Made in the USA #support #USA Buy American Made

 

Military

Well over 50 years ago I knew a lady who would not buy Christmas gifts if they were made in  China . Her daughter will recognize her in the following.

 

Did y'all see that Diane Sawyer has a special report coming up this week.   They removed ALL items from a typical, middle class family's home that were not made in the  USA .

 

There was hardly anything left besides the kitchen sink. Literally. During  the special they are going to show truckloads of items -  USA made - being  brought in to replace everything and will be talking about how to find these  items and the difference in price etc..

 

It was interesting that Diane said that if every American spent just $64  more than normal on  USA made items this year, it would create something like 200,000 new jobs!

 

I WAS BUYING FOOD THE OTHER DAY AT WALMART and ON THE LABEL OF SOME PRODUCTS IT SAID 'FROM  CHINA '

 

FOR EXAMPLE THE "OUR FAMILY" BRAND OF THE MANDARIN ORANGES SAYS RIGHT ON THE CAN 'FROM  CHINA '

 

I WAS SHOCKED SO FOR A FEW MORE CENTS I BOUGHT THE  LIBERTY GOLD BRAND OR THE DOLE SINCE IT'S FROM CALIF.

 

Are we Americans as dumb as we appear --- or --- is it that we just do not  think while the Chinese, knowingly and intentionally, export inferior and  even toxic products and dangerous toys and goods to be sold in American

Markets?

 

70% of Americans believe that the trading privileges afforded to the Chinese  should be suspended.

 

Why do you need the government to suspend trading privileges? DO IT  YOURSELF,  AMERICA !!

 

Simply look on the bottom of every product you buy, and if it says 'Made in  China ' or 'PRC' (and that now includes Hong Kong ), simply choose another  product, or none at all. You will be amazed at how dependent you are on  Chinese products, and you will be equally amazed at what you can do without.

 

Who needs plastic eggs to celebrate Easter? If you must have eggs, use real  ones and benefit some American farmer. Easter is just an example. The point  is do not wait for the government to act. Just go ahead and assume control on your own.

 

THINK ABOUT THIS: If 200 million Americans refuse to buy just $20 each of  Chinese goods, that's a billion dollar trade imbalance resolved in our  favor...fast!!

 

Most of the people who have been reading about this matter are planning on  implementing this on August 1st and continue it until September 1st. That is only  one month of trading losses, but it will hit the Chinese for 1/12th of the  total, or 8%, of their American exports. Then they might have to ask themselves if the benefits of their arrogance and lawlessness were worth it.

 

Remember, August 1st to September 1st.  START NOW.

 

Send this to everybody you know. Let's show them that we are Americans and  NOBODY can take us for granted.

 

If we can't live without cheap Chinese goods for one month out of our lives,  WE DESERVE WHAT WE GET!

 

Pass it on,  America .

 

Well instead of doing it for just 1 month why not try to do it all the time.

  1. I think it is great that you have passed on this great advise of a grass roots way to make a difference in what many people think as a problem that is so big that we can not make a difference.

    I recently needed a new clothes drying rack my choices of made in America products was very limited many of them looked like they came from American companies but when I called to ask where they were manufactured I was often told China.

    So my advice is even if it sounds like it is an American company be sure to call and ask where is it manufactured because often it is not here.
