Can anyone give me an honest answer without the run of the mill answers as... to support our economy... we are better... etc. Just want to know why you feel this way? And if you could answer this question with your pride aside (if possible).
To help create more jobs so people can actually start working again. Patriotism has nothing to do with it at all. The economy in this country is teetering on the brink of collapse because very little manufacturing occurs here anymore. Between the EPA, OSHA, taxation and cheap labor with no regard for the environment or employee working conditions in China and other countries, the U.S. has struggled to compete in the world economy. People have gravitated to the "cheaper is better" mentality and it has crushed businesses in this country.
