I’ve made it a habit to buy American when I can. In fact, I guess you could say that I go out of my way to do so… and not for political reasons, but for reasons of pride. Through those efforts I’ve found that many American made objects aren’t simply “better” or of higher quality, but just more expensive than their foreign made counterparts. And then, there are the goods that are really MADE in America with obvious pride and craftsmanship. When I find these goods, I’m a customer for life.
