Shopping for Clothing, Electronic, ETC, is an Eye-Opener!

As more stores reopen following the shutdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic, that originated in China, America’s consumers are out shopping for clothing, electronics, and hundreds of other items needed for everyday use. As our supporters are out shopping and looking closely at labels they continue to have an eye-opening experience as they see so many well-known brand items now offered for sale are totally foreign made. As supporters look at the items in their homes they purchased 15 or 20 years ago, they find that the majority of the items that were made in the United States, will now only be able to be replaced with foreign made products.

After listening to and reading Buy American Made Campaign appeals, none of us understand why America’s national leaders did not speak up and work closely with the businesses operating in America long before those businesses decided to leave the United States.

Businesses left the United States to escape rising operational costs, rising taxes and regulations which no longer allowed America to be a great place to do business and make a profit. National elected leaders must now openly discuss the loss of businesses and work with business leaders to maintain jobs in the United States, not look for more ways to expand government welfare type programs to hide the fact that businesses left America and took jobs and job skills with them.

Businesses leaving America didn’t happen in the last 5 or 10 years, it has been going on for more than 30 years. To change our future in recent years, national leaders lowered businesses taxes and regulations. Now it’s up us, America’s consumers to change our buying habits and focus on supporting American Made products so businesses in the United States can grow and restore jobs and America’s economy.

Thanks for supporting the Buy American Made Campaign, I encourage you to speak up where you shop and spread the word to others.
