Buy American And Support The Economy
I have decided that I am going to do my very best to join forces with many who are buying exclusively Made In USA products. Well I can tell you right off the bat, it is not an easy feat by any means. However, having said that, It is possible. But it takes a bit of time and some research.
Because we as a whole need to put together our greatest effort forward to get the American people back to work. By doing so, we can help to bring the prosperity back to our once prosperous country, that we know and love.
We live in America ! Why is it so difficult to find things that are made here ?

And So My Journey Begins
Now that Christmas season is here, and all that goes with it mainly "SHOPPING" and decorating.
It is time to set out and see what I can find.
Having said that, Christmas is not the only time to purchase American made products. It just happens to be the time of year that I do the most shopping and buy products that I normally wouldn't buy.
So with list in hand I started out.

How and where to buy American made products...
You can do what I did and with list in hand go out to shop, and carefully look each and every item over carefully..Very time consuming to say the least. Or research your item on the computer before leaving the house. There are many websites available with a list of American made products.
Unfortunately it seems that most of the major Brand names are not made in the USA. Sadly it seems , if you stick to American made products only, Many people on your who to buy for list, be it Christmas, Birthday, Graduation or just because we want it . Will be greatly disappointed .
But I am happy to announce that my next computer will be a Dell..
YES! DELL is made in the USA!
Made In The U.S.A.
