    You keep asking the same thing over and over.

    Actually all things equal, it is unpatriotic to buy such products. The problem is that it is so common now that it would be difficult to avoid it. Therefore, like I said, perhaps it is time for some high tariffs to be imposed on imported goods.

    I don't agree with capitalism as a whole, but It sickens me to know how those foreign goods are made, the horrid conditions and wages for those making them... Such is the way.

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.
    if you're going to go this route, don't forget to include foreign companies doing business here with american labor... to be consistent, you'll have to ask them to be patriotic and take their jobs and go back to their own country with them....they might as well take their foreign investment dollars with them as well

    .. it's the patriotic thing to do.

    So I can be confident that you only buy goods made in the US by companies whose roots are in the US? Or do you contribute to having companies move so they can compete with the products you do buy?

    Is it of benefit to force companies overseas with endless regulations?

    They could do that. But seeing that we run a huge trade deficit with countries like China, workers here would benefit if we kept our manufacturing capabilities here. I think it was a big mistake to send all of that overseas.

    Higher US labor costs are a major factor.
