    UAW heads back 'Buy American' campaign, praises Trump

    Personally, I absolutely love this campaign. You want Americans to have jobs? Look for the Made in America logo. Mr. Williams is dead on when he says that Americans should buy American. And it should be easier to tell where that vehicle you are about to buy was assembled. Just because it says Ford doesn't mean it was assembled in the USA. The same with a Honda, it could have been assembled in the USA. Support American workers and jobs. Look for the Made in USA on what you buy.

    Local, County, State, and Federal Government Agencies should be exposed and shamed when they purchase vehicles assembled outside of the USA. I agree with President Trump wanting to impose a tariff on vehicles assembled outside of the USA. Protect American jobs.

    • Dodge Charger is assembled in Brampton, Ontario, Canada.
    • Ford Interceptor is assembled in Chicago, Illinois.
    • Ford Interceptor Utility is assembled in Chicago, Illinois.
    • Chevrolet Caprice PPV is assembled in Australia.
    • Chevrolet Tahoe Police Patrol Vehicle is assembled in Arlington, Texas and Toronto, Canada.



    UAW heads back 'Buy American' campaign, praises Trump

    The president of the United Auto Workers union declared Thursday that the "Buy American" movement is back, praised President Trump for criticizing outsourcing and reiterated his call for the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

    UAW President Dennis Williams told reporters he's "in discussions" to air TV commercials promoting urging all to "Buy American" and wants to make it easier for consumers to identify foreign-made vehicles at car dealerships.

    "We’re seeing a trend in this country — the boycott may be coming back," Williams said, saying the "Buy American" push is gaining steam for the first time in "many, many years." He also says his union is gaining steam, pushing ahead to organize at auto plants of foreign makers in the U.S.and at Tesla Motors, the upstart electric car maker.

    For now, Williams says he has one basic message to consumers: "If it was not built in the United States, don't buy it."

    Ah, the siren song of protectionism.

    Hegel: The greatest lesson of history is that people never learn from it.

    Mark Twain: History may not repeat itself, but it rhymes.

    Karl Marx: History repeats itself, first as tragedy, and then as farce.

    We are certainly living in FARCICAL times, headed directly for Idiocracy.

    Liberals don't care if jobs get shipped away and they have no pride in their nation.

    The only things they actually want built in America are US Flags so it has more meaning when they are burning them.

    Walmart sells the exact same brands as anyone else.

    Of course you probably didn't know that.

    That and any merchandise that has the Trump brand upon it. I've never seen such un-American people as liberals. They support criminals, lawbreakers, and illegal aliens. They defend products, like vehicles being built in Canada and Mexico. Why do they hate American workers? I listened to President Obama tell that Carrier employee back in June that he might as well retrain, that job was gone. President Trump, he takes a different direction and it's going to end the Democrat party. If the UAW and other manufacturing unions were to swing right, it's over. Imagine if the Teamsters Union who isn't a fan of Mexican truck drivers being able to haul products in switches from supporting Democrats.

    The left hates Walmart. Yet they love Costco. Costco which sells the same stuff, made in the same overseas countries as Walmart. The only difference is Costco sells their stuff to a more affluent crowd.

    That would be pretty huge.

    Could even see a resurgence in unions if they go conservative.

    Since they are currently in their last throes that is a strong possibility, it only takes one large one to set it in motion.

    We had an old early 90s Ford Taurus and it had stickers on the rear side windows that said "Made Proudly in America by the UAW, Buy American." I also remember as a kid the old ads for garment workers, "look for the union label its the only way to be sure its Made in America." Its going to be popular again, unions have been desiring it for some time. Our DOT is now asking the state govt to mandate only buying American made vehicles again. It used to be required up until the early 2000s when the state said it didn't matter.
