If I were concerned about buying American I'd be more concerned myself with the majority of participating employees in the manufacturing process and its supporting departments. Where do they lay their heads? > Paul Nelson out of context: >Make a stand. Buy American. If American business owners make decisions to outsource labor and materials to other countries I can understand the driving forces of cost and/or quality and/or competition. I no longer view these businesses as purely American anymore. If I buy a BMW made in South Carolina or a Japanese Chrysler import or a Toyota made in California I have to be realistic about the fact that I'm compromising principles while supporting more than one economy. That seems to be what you mean by a global view, but it's more complicated than we realize. -Jim
