    You could be right. That said, I think there are some, particularly some neoconservatives, who are paranoid about China.

    That is the better question and my answer is that patriotism plays little (if any) role in my personal buying decisions A company basically just wants to gain market share, maximize profits and cares little about where the products are made. As a consumer my interest is in getting a needed product, of decent quality, at the least cost; I cannot justify paying far more to get a US made (at least so advertised) product when I can get a foreign made product instead.

    Using a circular saw as an example, the top rated saws are mostly foreign made and I boughht a Rigid (Chinese made) model; it cost me under $100, has a good case, a rip guide, 12-foot cord, cuts very fast & true and has no parts welded to the base plate allowing for easy replacement of damaged parts. Typically the depth of cut adjustment bar gets damaged when a saw is dropped and most are welded to the base plate. Replacement parts are readily available from South Carolina.

    I am right.

    People cry about China's economic rise, but they still buy their **** because it's cheap.

This is a flawed notion. There are ethical concerns, environmental concerns, and humanitarian concerns that should be taken into consideration as well. Why? Because these are the characteristics of civilized human beings that distinguish them from animals in the jungle who only care about their next meal to the exclusion of all else. As a result of these types of considerations, certainly we can say that patriotism should be a factor when making such a decision to outsource jobs.
    Well then good, I ask again is it unpatriotic to buy foreign made products?

    What are you referring to as cheap goods? Other human beings? Or do you mean a toy made in a horrid Chinese factory?

    And when you empty out your house of foreign made goods, I'll bet you don't have much left.

    Now I ask you, is it unpatriotic to buy foreign made goods?
