Good luck trying to survive by only buying products made here. For anything other than custom or high end products, they aren't made here. Show me ONE automobile made in the past 20 years that contains 100% parts made in the US. You can't do it. Heck, I doubt you can find a bike anymore that doesn't have at least one part made outside the US on it.
I don't disagree.
My father in-law is a devout union worker. Bitches about globalization and whatnot, and first store he goes to shop at when he needs something is Menards. He then buys the cheapest item he can. Not quality, doesn't care the brand or anything. Just price.
This is what I cannot follow.
