Buy products made in the USA

You heard the numbers, folks, unemployment in America is up to 9.8 percent. Everyone knows we need more jobs, but no one seems to realize that to create more jobs we need to purchase American products, not the thousands of things we used to make that are now manufactured cheaper in China. The trade off for those cheap products is American jobs went away. Simple math and economics tell us that American companies expand when there is a demand for their products. Wake up, America, and be more discerning in what you are buying. Walk down the aisles in Wal Mart, KMart, Target, Rite Aid, Lowe's, Home Depot and pick up a few items and just check where is it made. You guessed it, China. Ask the manager why they don't stock American products. It has to start with consumers asking for American products. If you have a choice, buy an American product. If the store you frequent does not have a line of American products for necessities, then go to one that does. How difficult is that? If we all started doing our part and thinking that way, our economy would be booming in no time. Paul M. Harman, Auburn
