Period! NO EXCUSES !
We Americans have become such stupid people if we think we can survive as a nation and not support our own economy.
May God have mercy on those fools.

Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
Go ahead and cheat your best friend;
Do it in the name of freedom,
You can justify it in the end.

The strength of our economy,
Is ruled by the things that we make;
What we make, makes us what we are,
Simple logic that's hard to fake.

If Americans make nothing,
Then that's exactly what we are;
And YOU are part of the problem,
If you dare buy a foreign car.

"As goes our auto industry,
So goes our whole economy;"
No one can argue with the facts,
They know how stupid we can be.

But it goes much further than that,
It goes for all the things that we buy;
Buy what's made in the U.S.A,
Or Lady Liberty will surely die.

I'm so sick of the selfishness,
Think of your country as a whole;
Are there any Patriots left,
Or has the devil bought their souls?

Pledging allegiance to our land,
Is not something one does half way;
 We must give it one hundred percent,
Or there won't be a U.S.A.

Open your eyes, wake up my friends,
This country's future is in your hands;
Don't settle for less for your children,
Don't sell out your American land.

Dear Paul, don't worry, we have everyting, the good, the bad and the ugly. Also be sure, we have also the honest, the lovely and the pure Americans. Those who fought will never let America down. Love emile

I bought American and your poem makes me glad I did!

I agree with you mostly, Paul. One thing that is out there people are poor. So the average Joe with kids to support will look for bargains. Hence buy something made in a foreign land. IMHO, labor unions are big culprits. They brought the prices up on American made products. This was a very good writing as it addressed our counties needs.

I am so proud to hear you speak up this way Paul, as we speak for our Canada. We can keep our county strong buy accepting what the country has to offer, there is no need to go any farther. A great write.

Newfie Hugs, Rose

Well said, Paul, and truly we all need to take a stand in whatever endeavor we can to preserve our country.

Thank you, Karen, for saying, "NO." That's the spirit of a TRUE American Patriot. Just say, "NO, I will NOT sell out my country."
And may I say that nothing burns me more than seeing Veteran's plates on imports. Of all the unpatriotic gall. An act of treason in this guys eyes. I'd better stop now; I'm on a roll and this subject really ticks me off to no end. Thank you again and God bless you, my friend.

AMEN!! I agree with you wholeheartedly! Last week, I refused a shirt that Karla wanted to buy me because even though it had the American flag with tue words "USA" on the front, it was made in the Honduras! The HONDURAS! I said, "NO WAY!" So I didn't get a shirt. Oh, well ... Powerful call for change! Sad that we have to resort to cheap labor just because it's more affordable! We shot ourselves in the foot here, and it's time to taka America BACK!!

(((HUGS))) adn much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(
