When you have a choice, Buy American

Over the last year, more than 1 million manufacturing jobs have been lost in the United States. We now import more products from Asia and other countries than ever in our history. These foreign-made products are not always constructed with safety or longevity in mind. Many of them are junk that ends up in our landfills, further destroying our earth and our country.

It's time we took back our country and became more self-reliant and self-sufficient. The best way to do this is for Americans to make an effort to buy American-made products. There are many companies still thriving in this country and others barely surviving, and they need all the business they can get. Though their products may cost a little more (but not always), the money stays in the United States and doesn't go overseas. In the long-run, this benefits all Americans.

Each week, or as the need arises, I will feature and discuss one American manufacturer and the company's products and various related topics in this blog. If you know of a good American-made product/company you'd like to see featured, please let me know.
