Well I hate to say a day late and dollar short but that sums it up.
WE should've boycotted China decades ago.
But, because there is a plot to destroy the American industry, we can't.
You try telling people that they can't buy cheap, affordable, yet lacking-in-quality goods.
You try to get people to understand that buy purchasing Chinese goods, we take away American jobs.
We only produce a small amount of things anymore.
Even the components we use to assembly our own goods are produced in China.
There is no stopping this beast.
It is WELL fed and engorged on imported goods.
The so-called gov't that we bow down to has let this take place with non-tariffed imports.
No, make that decades.
So you see, in order to take care of our own, we should've kept producing our own things.
But we haven't.
Because our own taxes are used to support other countries.
I try to buy American everywhere I go.
The unfortunate part of it all is that American goods are few and FAR between.
I even went to a local hardware store today to purchase an axe.
I was certain that they would carry American made.
The only axe they carried was made in Mexico.
Blame NAFTA for that.
All box stores and franchise operations are the same.
It's cheaper to get imported junk.
AND the American public want cheap things.
Because they can't afford anything else.
