We need to buy locally

Overseas manufacturing is killing local jobs

We need jobs! We don’t need inferior foreign goods!

A special report by Dianne Sawyer stated that if every American or Canadian spent just $64 more than normal on U.S. or Canadian made items this year it would create about 200,000 new jobs.

Are we Americans and Canadians as dumb as we appear, or is it that we just do not think?

The Chinese, knowingly and intentionally, export inferior and even toxic products and dangerous toys and goods to be sold in American and Canadian markets. Seventy per cent of Americans and Canadians believe that the trading privileges afforded to the Chinese should be suspended.

Why do we need the government to suspend trading privileges? Do it yourself America and Canada! We need to shop locally!
