I don't pay attention, I just buy the cheapest
I look and prefer certain nations, not necessarily American
I look and try to avoid buying Chinese
I look and will always buy American, if there is a choice
I prefer American, European or Japanese.
American for appliances, European for shoes and ski equipment, Japanese for autos
If I can, I try to keep my purchases limited to the Western Hemisphere
America first, if possible.
Whoever makes the best is my choice
Other, please explain

Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

Being a starving college student, there's a limitation to my choices. Still, I focus on the quality - cost ratio. Cheaper gadgets cost more in the long run, expensive gadgets rarely perform their price.
Given the opportunity between foreign or domestic, however, I choose domestic. I don't buy too much from China.
I hear a lot more horror stories about American cars today than I do about foreign.
