Trace Adkins has always supported our Military and performed throughout the World at different military bases; now Trace has taken a pledge to buy American Made products. Here’s what Trace said during an interview at CMT Country Countdown.
Trace said, I didn’t want to sell another item that said ‘Made in China,’ and I was ashamed of myself that it took this many years to do this. Finally it dawned on me that I didn’t have to sell stuff made in Taiwan, China, or India, and I’m willing to pay more for the merchandise. It took a lot longer to find those vendors. The hardest was ball caps. It’s really hard to find an American company that makes ball caps.” Way to go Trace!
After making this pledge, Trace contacted good friend Toby Keith. Toby not only joined Trace by making a pledge to buy American Made, this Oklahoma country music star wrote an awesome song “Made in America.” http://blog.newsok.com/bamsblog/2011/06/10/video-toby-keith-performs-made-in-america-on-the-cmt-music-awards/
Hey, America lets join Trace and Toby and make the pledge to buy American Made products. Here we see two country western patriots who are making a difference. A small group of people can change our Nation by “taking back our Country.” A recent study says if every American would spend $ 64.00 annually 200,000 jobs will be created.
Here’s some interesting statistics, “If every American spent $64 more this year on American Made goods, it would mean 200,000 new USA manufacturing jobs this year” according to David Muir, an ABC news correspondent. How about we challenge American consumers to increase their spending on US Made products to $320 to create 1 million new manufacturing jobs this year?
Americans have watched in agony as Obama and our Government used our stimulus money to pad the pockets of the banks, AIG, Freddie, Fannie, Unions and the pitiful list just rambles on… This is “redistribution” the Obama way – a plan that has left 14 million without jobs.
Consider “redistribution” the American way; we the people decide where our money will go, who the beneficiaries will be and we kick big government’s run away spending agenda out the door and down the road. Remember $64 can generate 200,000 jobs literally overnight!
It’s merely a matter of pledging $64 to your Country and not your Government; every time you buy a piece of clothing, equipment, electronic, baby items or consumer product tagged made in China or Taiwan you’re actually contributing to the wealth of a foreign country.
Frankly, at this time our hands aren’t tied even though most of our products come from a foreign country; consider going to this website and spending a small portion of your money on American Made goods. http://www.howtobuyamerican.com/content/ba-links.shtml or http://www.madeinusa.org/
Most of us buy toiletries, some clothing, food or toys for our pets, items for our business monthly; it’s just a matter of wrapping your mind around a concept that will create new jobs, bring more money into our government and inspire entrepreneurs to take that leap of faith and create a new business.
Unlike Uncle Sam, no one is asking Americans to dig deeper into their pockets. The question remains do we want to contribute to our beautiful Country or to China?
For every dollar we put back into American Made businesses we’re helping to restore our Nation’s once strong foundation – our Government should hide its head in shame because it doesn’t exert much effort in supporting American Made goods.
Our Government needs a face lift – they need to start buying from American businesses; wouldn’t it be nice to walk into a Government office and see pens, paper, electronics all tagged made in America? Wouldn’t it be nice to see our politicians wearing American Made clothing? Wouldn’t it be nice if we’d do what Trump has suggested and level the playing field with China?
If 300,000,000 Americans would take one dollar a day and spend it on American Made products, it would add up to $109,500,000,000 that equates into 109.5 billion, which is more than a drop in a bucket. $ 64 dollars annually would equate into 200,000 new jobs. http://www.madeinusa.org/
America, we need to be in charge once again and practice “redistribution the All American Way.” It’s obvious our Government has lost its way!
May God Bless America
