I understand your view on the economy and somewhat agree; however, I must raise issue with this statement, "The fact is that the more you earn the more damage you do to the economy with your purchases of foreign made products." A generalization like this sounds like it is coming from Karl Marx himself, and I doubt that was your intent.
The more I make the more opportunity I have to work with local companies. I would much rather work with a local family owned business than one that is owned by some corporation that looks at nothing but quarterly earnings. I have found that working with a locally owned family business has many, many positives that greatly out weight the negatives. Many times the only negative is that I have to operate on terms with the family owned business versus cash only with the corporate owned outfits. Every neighborhood shopping center, gas station, and senior center I build is built by operated by a local company. Every board foot of lumber that I cut goes to a US mill and is then sold in the US.
I do think we are being robbed, and our representatives are allowing and advocating for it; all the while the people who actually care about what is going keep arguing with each over strict ideology. I have basically decided that I don't care about the Right or the Left anymore, but about America instead. If it is not Pro American I won't buy it, won't support it, and won't consume it.
