America has always been a country of entrepreneurs, builders, and creators. As we work to restore our economy, it is important to stand behind the American companies that make good products, maximize U.S. employment, and earn the loyalty of their workers and the communities of which they're a part. Roger Simmermaker introduces to us fifty companies doing just that, and explains how we can all be part of a strong national recovery.

BAMW: Show your support for John Ratzenberger’s new American Made TV Series!
John Ratzenberger is back and he’s starting a new TV series called John Ratzenberger’s American Made. You may also remember John Ratzenberger as Cliff Clavin the mailman on Cheers or his many voice parts in Pixar’s feature films like Toy Story and the Cars series.
BAMW: Uniquely American Christmas ideas from the USA Shop!
If you haven’t visited the USA Shop link on the ‘How Americans Can Buy American’ website lately, you might be in for a pleasant surprise if you’re looking for exclusive American-made goods that are often found nowhere else.
Goodwill project is built almost entirely of domestic materials
Roger Simmermaker, the Central Florida author of "How Americans Can Buy American," said what Walmart is doing, as well as the Williams Company in West Melbourne, show the issue still resonates strongly with Americans. "Typically, when you ask people, do they prefer American goods when price and quality are the same, they'll say 'yes,'" said Simmermaker. "Businesses see those polls," Simmermaker said, "and they're more in tune to play the 'Made in the USA' card if you will."
BAMW: Despite patriotic pledge, Walmart threatens to destroy another American-made company
The folks at ENER-GEL know that small manufacturing companies are vital to the growth and prosperity of America. Over the past 20 years, they’ve created American jobs and purchased raw materials, packaging, and equipment from other American companies. Walmart’s dismissal of this family-owned American company will unfortunately have job-loss ripple effects on these other domestic producers beyond ENER-GEL unless patriotic-minded Americans move to support them when possible.
BAMW: How to bolster pro-Buy American legislation
To help make sure Washington gets the message about the powerful and positive impact that Buying American has on our economy, a non-profit, appropriately named the Buy American Project, has been founded to encourage our legislators to support common-sense, pro-Buy American legislation.
BAMW: Top quality cooking for around your kitchen or your campfire
More and more Americans today deplore the practice of outsourcing solely to take advantage of selling to the American market while undercutting American producers who proudly employ American workers. Few American companies have exclusively employed only Americans for longer than Jacob Bromwell has.
BAMW: The future of foot care - made in America!
When I used the Footmate System for the first time, I felt a tingling sensation and the feeling of greater blood circulation in my legs.
Spending Smart: Finding value in 'Made in the USA'
FOLLOW THE PROFITS: Roger Simmermaker, author of the book "How Americans Can Buy American," suggests starting more simply than with vehicles and appliances. Start in the supermarket "where, ultimately, you spend more of your time and more of your money." His idea is not to just buy American-made products but products from American companies, which pay more taxes than foreign firms. For example, even though both are American-made and known to be quality brands, Clorox is owned by an American company and Lysol is owned by a British company. Prego is American-owned; Ragu is owned by Unilever, which traces ownership to England and the Netherlands.
BAMW: Sign the petition to ban Chinese-processed chicken!
Let's put a stop to this blatantly unsafe and unnecessary concession and let it be known that we don't want any chicken from China coming to America! Sign the White House petition on the WhiteHouse.gov website, and alert every like-minded concerned citizen that you know, encouraging them to do the same.
BAMW: Friends don't let friends wear foreign sunglasses
So here's your chance to make sure you're sporting American-made sunglasses for the rest of the sun-filled days this year and beyond, and let everyone know you support the 'Buy American' cause at the same time.
BAMW: Not licking your chops for Chinese Chicken?
Then sign this White House petition!
Chinese-processed chicken will soon become a reality in America, courtesy of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), unless the American people are willing to make a move right now to stop it!
