Are you irrated by trolls who say only buy American?

Jobs follow market demand, and lower production costs.

I love to buy only American made products but if you are poor, it is hard to do unless, of course, you give up eating and don't pay your mortgage.


China is not very different from America. The bastardly politicians are insanely rich, the middle class is slowly dying and there will always be a majority of the poor, and the poorest. The only difference is our jobs are going there instead of their jobs coming here, because the Chinese governments are heartless and force more than 100 million Chinese live below the poverty line, which Beijing has defined as about $1 a day.

Slave like cheap wages = Very cheap production cost + high profit margin

I understand where they are coming from, that China as a nation is very wealthy and is a great opposition to America, but also know that most of the Chinese people are poor.

I don't know why some people can't be economically realistic.

@Val Killmore,
Well, you're hanging out with the wrong crowd.

These trolls are several decades too late in their complaint (with the limited exception of car manufacturing) as most manufacturing is done outside the US and very little is made in the US so choosing those products over imported ones are limited and scarce.

Which "trolls" say that?
I mean here, on A2k?
I'm assuming that anyone who says that all the time, on any thread going, would be really well known to us all.
In any case, I can't see anything wrong with choosing to buy local. (I don't live in the US)
I do it as often as I can, or can afford to, to support the jobs of embattled local workers, many of whom are finding it extremely difficult to survive on the global "free market".

@msolga,
So will I, but there are whole classes of merchandise that are simply not made here.

@roger,
Yes I know, Roger.
Same with a lot of services which have now gone "offshore".
Melbourne, where I live, was the industrial capital of Oz.
Really tough times for those workers who used to work in those industries & those trying to hold onto their jobs now.
All that talk of retraining or relocation doesn't appear to have come to much at all for their job prospects.
Sigh.

My sister's boyfriend is American, and he told me his mother was worried about him flying around Europe "because they all use those Airbuses". She told him "Walt and I say 'If it ain't Boeing, we ain't going'". He replied (he says) "What about that 30 year old DC-9 you used last month?".

So, troll has no meaning? Anybody with whom one does not agree is a troll now?

That's how you use the word, Set.

Please tell us that you're not off on another of your idiotic "let me tell you about the vocabulary of English" routines.

@Setanta,
Troll as in someone who drives a civic with a bumper sticker
"Real Americans Buy American"

As well as people who don't think before they speak.

I could go on....

@Val Killmore,
You do realize Honda and many other foreign car companies own and operate factories here in the US so technically those bumper stickers aren't blatant acts of hypocrasy which you so hard try to haughtily imply in your post.

@tsarstepan,
Didn't say it was hypocrisy, I know 85 % of the parts are made in America, and that there are plants that put civics together in America.

but still 15% is still made in Asia.

So there is still a partial contradiction.

@tsarstepan,
Saying such a statement is still a contradiction even if you buy Ford or Chevy, cause some parts are made in Japan and China

@Val Killmore,
We're at the point where made in America merely only means assembled in America. It's the indefinite nature of the global economy.

To say otherwise is a statement built on un or undereducated mindset.
