Why Buy American Made?

If you're an American, there are many reasons to buy products made in your own country.

If this country is going to get back to the self-sufficient land we all knew long ago, then Americans need to step up and support American industry. It's as simple as that. Buying cheap things made in China does not give me pride of ownership. Does it you? We can't afford to lose the skills and technology that have made our country what it is.

We should buy American-made because:

1) Saves or create jobs for American citizens so they can support their families and the U.S. economy.
2) The money made by American companies stays in America, thereby supporting our economy at home.
3) Products made in American are held to safety standards not found in other countries so the products you buy are safer and usually more reliable.
4) Saves on energy. Products made in other countries must be imported on cargo ships. These ships travel thousands of miles using thousands of gallons of fuel.
5) Makes our country more self-sufficient. We need to maintain our manufacturing abilities and technology so we aren't dependent on foreign countries for everything.
6) Gives us pride in ownership.

These are just a handful of reasons to buy American-made products. Can you think of others?
