    That means no more Winchesters or Brownings and most of the parts to repair or American cars and trucks. Close Wallmart, Target and most of the Big Box Stores. You will most likely have to give up pork products. Most of our cloths and Levis for sure. We will be naked and hungrey but by hell we can do it.

    You might have to do a lot of research to find out if a car is truly made in America. A lot of the big 3's production takes place in Canada and Mexico with parts supplied from around the world. To add to the confusion, many foreign branded vehicles are manufactured in foctories in America. It might be a good idea to support the American companies, but remember they're all operating in a global market. The U.S. is only one segment of the market for them.

    Might have a hard time finding a "buy American" sticker made in America ... I bought a baseball style cap at the FBI store when I worked on a remodeling project at the Midwest Regional office, it says "made in china" in big bold print on the tag-our own Gov't doesn't support US manufacturers.

    I can't afford to buy American any more. It's not that the country lost it's patriotism, it's that the unions priced the American made products out of the market.

    I bought the Gadsden hat, and T shirt from NRA. When it came in I got a catalog for their store, and a little magnet for the fridge. It says "for real American values", the hat, and T shirt are made in China. I just bought a new car. I wanted a Ford. Ford didn't want my business, so I bought a Hyundai. I know they didn't want my business because they were $5,000 higher on a comparable Hyundai. And most of the Ford was made somewhere other than in the USA anyway. I agree the Unions are killing America, and they are Socialist. Ask me how I know! I do try to buy American when I can, I always look at labels. However, most of time there simply isn't an American Company that makes that product. Or the stores don't carry them because they cost too much!

    I agree with that wholeheartedly. We did it to ourselves.

    Brother, I hear ya on this, but it's not that easy anymore. America has been sold out! Sold out by the people who are in charge of it at the Government level, and you, and I, let them. We set on our butts, bringing in a paycheck for the week, that was in some cases larger than the anual income of some families around the world! Yea, we were born to the right parents, in right country, in the right century, and our skin was the right color. We had it made, and we flaunted it! We fiddled while our Country burned! Now we gotta pay up! Buy American? There are a few companies out there that make a product in America, when I need that product, and can afford it, I buy American!

    Thanks for the site. I have book marked it. I looked it over some, and it would appear that most of the items listed for sale will be bought sight unseen! I don't have a problem buying something I know about on line, but I do have a slight problem ordering something from an on line store that I have never seen, and know nothing about. I will try to use it as best I can though.

    For Jeans I know of two.
    Texas Jeans and Diamond Gusset Jeans.
    DGJ are made in Bon Aqua [Dickson] TN just W of Nashville
    and they only use Denim made in the USA. They make them
    with a 'diamond gusset' sewn in the crotch for freedom of movement.
    Their order dept. will fit you to size perfectly and guarantee the fit.
    So, for you especially Carver, here is one place that I vouch for
    that you can trust.

    The problem is, many American manufacturers don't listen and provide the goods people demand. That's why Jap cars got in, the Big Three ignored what the American people were wanting and just built what they thought the competion would be impressed with.
    Try to buy a motorcycle that isn't a Harley style cruiser made in the states, and yet there are dozens of look alike copycats of the H-D made here.
    But not one Dualsport, Dirt or good Touring bike.
    Sorry, be American, buy American, (and get ripped off by your fellow American in many cases) has no influence on me, It's a Global market, like it or not.
    When it comes to my money, I follow the Ruskin rule.

    You know those little tags on clothing and other items that say "Made in China"? Well I understand that those tags are made in America. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Benjamin Franklin said that "The power to tax is the powed to destroy". Could it be possible that the 30% corporate tax in this country, compared to the 18% corporate tax in Canada and the 17% tax in Mexico are reason enough for corporations to move elsewhere? Actually, with all the taxes we pay, directly and indirectly, we are the most heavily taxed people on this earth! All those taxes are combined in the final price, and we as consumers pay all of them!

    My Nissan was made in Tennessee. Where are most "American" cars made?My dad's Dodge truck was assembled in Mexico with a lot of foreign made parts. And since this is a firearms forum; how sad is it that our own military and the overwhelming majority of our police agencies issues foreign made sidearms? Sigs, Glocks, Berettas, etc. It seems that American quality and workmanship has severely slipped in the past few decades. I hope we can one day get it back, but until we do, I will have to buy the best product for the best price available. My 2006 Nissan has, so far been maintenance free, while my wife's Jeep Liberty (a year newer) has been in the shop NUMEROUS times since we bought it.

    There is some good in importing as well as exporting. American companys make huge bucks exporting goods. While I can understand the frustration, you will NEVER see only made in america products in this country. And, I will add, some imported products are better than the high priced american product. Also, in the land of the free we have a choice what we want to buy. Take away our choice and your dictating. Do we need to drive the unions out? Yes. Should we try to buy american when we can? Yes again. But import and export is here to stay.
