Positive Actions Make a Difference!

As we come to the end of the summer season, I thank the supporters of the Buy American Made Campaign and American Workers Radio for helping to spread the message of our efforts to restore jobs in the U.S.A. Because so many Americans have been speaking up, we are receiving a growing amount of support from radio and television broadcasters, newspapers, Internet sites and tens of millions of individuals promoting our message. Whether I’m out at a festival or social gathering people tell me what they are doing to support our efforts, how they are looking at labels before they make a purchase and how they are directing more of their dollars to items with made in America labels.

It is important for everyone to understand that our campaign is not seeking to discourage worldwide competition, but to expand it so that more American made products are for sale on the international market. Our campaign seeks to restore no less than a 50% representation of made in the U.S.A. being sold in the U.S.A., proudly recognizing that these items represent the quality and workmanship of American workers and businesses operating in the U.S.A.

RIGHT NOW 70% of America’s economy is based on Americans' spending on products and services. If people are unemployed they can only spend on their basic needs. Additionally, a large portion of America’s economy reflects buying imported products rather than being able to buy products also made in the U.S.A. If 70% of our nation’s economy represents the need for Americans to buy durable goods like clothing, household needs, electronics and hundreds of others, it’s more important than ever that businesses based in America be encouraged with every incentive possible to help restore America’s manufacturing base which would mean tens-of-millions of additional jobs. Manufacturing what we use on a regular basis was the cornerstone of America’s economy for hundreds of years. The question our campaign asks is why did America’s national leaders sit back and do nothing as tens-of-thousands of manufacturing facilities moved overseas and created jobs in foreign countries while eliminating jobs in America.

Thanks for looking at labels and supporting job opportunities for working-age and able-bodied Americans. Kindly spread the word and invite others to visit:, which is linked to additional Internet sites promoting ways to support American workers and America’s economy.
