70% of America's Economy is Based on Consumer Sales!

In recent years we have heard many reports about how the loss of domestic industries has continued to hurt the well-being of America and especially the stability of Americans. America still has a large manufacturing sector, but most of the products are durable items that are not purchased on a frequent basis. Expanding manufacturing of items like clothing, furniture and electronics are just a few that could make major and long-lasting change in America's employment situation.

As more Americans speak up and promote expanding manufacturing of day-to-day items used by the American people more private sector businesses will be able to create jobs placing competitive American made products on the American market. It is very true that modern technology requires fewer people to produce and market items that were needed 35 years ago. However, in the last 35 years there have been so many new items on the world market that there is no reason that competitive items should not be made in the U.S.A. The objectives of American Workers Need You and the Buy American Made Campaign have been to unite America's consumers and re-awaken the spirit of innovation so that tens-of millions of Americans can be employed.

As we see in every report about the JOB situation in America, more Americans are committed to seeking out American made and speak up for what should and could be competitive American made products in every store in the U.S.A. We heard all of the excuses, now it's time to remove tax loopholes that benefit only some businesses and implement long-term rewards for businesses doing business in America. Contact your local, state and federal elected officials so they get the message from more and more constituents.

My thanks to those who have joined our campaign and are spreading the word to others. Each of us makes the decision as to how our dollars will be spent. Today, 70% of America's economy is based on consumer sales and services. This is a statistic that must be changed because a large portion of the 70% is benefiting foreign workers instead of Americans. I urge you to help us circulate more of our own dollars in the U.S.A. by seeking out American made FIRST and urge store managers where you shop to seek out more American made products from their distributors.
