    How Can We Put Together A Running List of Parts made in USA

    How Can We Put Together A Running List of Parts made in USA.

    All parts listed would have to be subject to review to insure they are actually made in the USA.

    Is this a Good or Bad idea?

    How would you verify it was made in the USA?

    Anyone can claim it. How do we prove it?

    Are you wanting actual Made in the USA items, or US owned businesses?

    Everyone bashes on Toyota, so I'll use them as the prime example. They have invested millions into manufacturing within the USA, however, everyone considers them a Japanese business, and always says support the Big 3.

    So, what's more important? American manufacturing jobs, or where the money eventually goes?

    if the metal is cast here or else where, it would be good :wink:

    Where would you draw the line, do the raw materials, machining, and assembly have to be US?

    Least them overseas companys are employing US citizen to make their stuff.
    Might be US made but 99% of the parts they use to assemble came off a boat from Asia, or Europe.
    The US workers are spending their earnings here helping our economy but them huge profits are sent back home.
