U.S. consumers need awareness and flexibility with their purchases
Our Buy American Mention of the Week!
by Roger Simmermaker
March 29, 2020

The outbreak of the coronavirus in the U.S. puts Americans at risk for their health. Beyond that, the fallout may be felt by American consumers when the products they want and need become unavailable due to our dependency (over-dependency) upon Chinese imports.

There are other options. Below is a list of 100% All American-made alternatives to popular products made in China - which means ZERO overseas content. Proving we can buy American alternatives to Chinese-made products and not disrupt consumer spending.

100% Made in the USA Made in China
Makeup America L'Oreal
Capps shoes Kenneth Cole
CHANNELLOCK tools Craftsman tools
All American Clothing Co. Ralph Lauren
American Plastic Toys Barbie Dolls
Wigwam socks Adidas socks
Liberty Tabletop silverware Oneida silverware

The USA brands listed above can be easily found on a Google search.

Honorable mentions go to companies I patronize like Ener-Gel insoles and Davids Toothpaste. These companies are made in USA to the degree that domestic content is available. Ener-Gel uses imported fabric to line their American-made insoles only because that fabric is not available in the USA. Davids toothpaste uses an extremely low 2% content from Japan. That means 98% USA! All other toothpaste you can buy from your grocery the store - even if it is labeled 'Made in USA' - uses ingredients from China. Davids does not. Especially in times like these, it's probably a good idea to not be putting any ingredients from China into our bodies. You can purchase Ener-Gel insoles here and Davids toothpaste here.

America has the ability to supply the needs of "We the People" if we know where to look: at our talent and our resources. Awareness and flexibility will lead us to the right decisions that will benefit America at this critical time.

President George Washington, the father of American independence, warned us against foreign entanglements, saying,

There can be no greater error than to expect or calculate upon real favours from Nations.

Warning us against the attraction of cheap products from abroad, President William McKinley said,

I do not prize the word cheap. It is not a badge of honor. It is a symbol of despair. Cheap prices make for cheap goods; cheap goods make for cheap men; and cheap men make for a cheap country.

Americans don't want a cheap country dependent on Chinese imports. We want an independent and prosperous country that cherishes our Declaration of Independence. We do not need a declaration of inter-dependence.

Our U.S. Constitution says we are to "form a more perfect Union", not a more perfect global economy.
