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. - President Bill Clinton

BAMW: How free trade is ruining America Free trade is contrary to what our Founding Fathers had in mind. No founding national document - be it the U.S. Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, or the Federalist Papers - mentions free trade or free markets in any sense of the terms.
BAMW: China is buying the U.S. one American company at a time What's the best way for a country like China to exert its influence over the U.S. economy? Acquire American-owned companies like Chinese-owned Haier just did when they purchased General Electric's (GE) appliance business for $5.4 billion. So much for American independence and authentic Independence Day celebrations on July 4th.
BAMW: The only way to save America is to Buy American The answer to America's economic problems is right under our nose - right in our own back yards. The answer is to Buy American and end the elusive and financially devastating attractiveness of supposedly cheaper imports. We must Buy American while there is still American left to buy.
BAMW: Make it an American-made Christmas When we buy American-made Christmas gifts, we aren't just giving a gift to that special someone on our Christmas list. We are also giving an American worker the gift of continued employment so they can enjoy Christmas too and have money to spend on presents for their loved ones.
BAMW: Travel tough with American-made Tough Traveler gear It doesn't matter if you're traveling for business or for pleasure, or for a long trip or an overnight stay. Or maybe you're just looking for a nice and unique Christmas gift for that special someone. Tough Traveler has you and your precious belongings covered.
BAMW: American-made should light the way We should do what we can to keep American producers and suppliers providing for our police, military personnel, and firefighters from American shores - not foreign shores. If we patronize the products of American producers regardless of what they produce, we keep them profitable and make it more likely they can keep producing their goods in America.
BAMW: Authentically American quality kitchenware Jacob Bromwell is one of the few patriotic companies you will find that has never outsourced production to low-wage labor countries to reduce costs because they have faith in the creativity and productivity of American workers.
BAMW: Don't tread on Chinese-made Dr. Scholl's Don't tread on me. That should be how you look at Chinese-made Dr. Scholl's insoles, which are carried in your local Wal-Mart store despite their fairly recent and historic 'Buy American' pledge. The American alternative? Family-owned, American-owned (and American-made) ENER-GEL, whose insoles can be purchased here by going to my USA Shop.
BAMW: Truly American toothpaste With Davids, it all comes down to the sustainability of American labor, American profits, American ingredients, American packaging, and American jobs.
BAMW: Free traders: Capitalist champions of unfair competition Do you like and/or approve of unfair competition? If you're an advocate for free trade you do, whether you realize it or not. You may call yourself a capitalist, but if you approve of free trade, you approve of unfair competition within the capitalist system you propose to support.
BAMW: Buy American and Free Trade: A Love/Hate Relationship If you love Buying American, you should hate free trade. Literally. Why? Because you cannot claim to support making it easier for Americans to Buy American and favor free trade at the same time. That is if your goal is a stronger U.S. economy, more jobs here at home, and more prosperous America, at least.

It's easy to say we should buy American but it's not easy to actually do it. 'How Americans Can Buy American' goes a long way toward turning a good idea into reality. - Charley Reese
Forty-percent of the world is in recession. New records have

negative, as the average consumer spends $1.10 for every

since 1972 -
about the same time we entered into a so-called "global
only vote for our representatives every two or four years,
but we vote
with our wallets and checkbooks every day!
How Americans Can Buy American puts the steering
controlling our nation's fate in the hands of those who care
most - The American People. The time has come for ordinary
