In 2017 Don’t Just Try to Buy More American… Try to Buy More AMERICAN!

I’m not big on stating clear and high targeted new year’s resolutions. Things like lose x number of pounds or do y a certain number of times never work for me. But I do like general goals with a broad objective.

One such goal is, as I wrote last week, to do less politics and more America. In today’s post I’m going to add a little to that.

While I’m not a “buy only American made” fanboy (I have a foreign made phone, TV, etc), I do tend to at least seek American made products when doing so is readily available. This year I would like to take that a step further.

I’m going to actively seek to spend my money where I can identify company owners/businesses that share my core principles. I don’t mean Republican or Democrat, but I do mean the basic principles set out in the constitution and Bill of Rights.

How many times over the past few years have we seen companies like Starbucks, Kellogg’s and many others radically oppose the basic principles of liberty? How many times have these companies used the very dollars we give them in an attempt to stifle our free speech, hurt American jobs and demand that we adhere to political correctness?

I’m tired of it. I’m tired of feeding that beast. I’m tired of being an enabler for them.

These companies have, for years now, insulted us, berated us and even told us they don’t really want or need our business. Fine. I’ll stop providing it.

I’ll try to buy American made, of course, but I’m also going to try to buy AMERICAN in 2017. And I hope others will consider joining me.

Enough is enough.
