That's the truth. If everything I wanted or bought was made in this country I would have no problems spending more on it. But the problem has become that just finding the things you want that are made here is a pain in the ass and at that there are some things that just are no longer made here.
I think your comment about nuking the US is pretty dead on. This country has fucked itself over so bad time and time again I really don't see any outs. We are (supposedly) dependent on foreign oil, we are dependent on foreign goods, etc... We do nothing but consume anymore.
