I just recently viewed Made in the USA: The 30 Day Journey by Josh Miller. It seems that this die hard fan of keeping America working by using products that are Made in the USA has discovered a way to bring this movement to the Worlds attention. Josh went on a documented journey for 30 days using nothing but items that were Made in the USA. With a film crew in tow, he traveled from one end of the USA to the other talking to business owners and others while only using products Made in the USA. There were times when he couldn’t sleep on beds because they were foreign owned or take a shower because the shower head was outsourced. It is an interesting discovery of what it would be like if you only had American owned products or things that are Made in the USA. Continue reading

Welcome a guest blogger who has taken the time to write a wonderful story for By America For America:
During this time of economic recession more consumers are working to make their purchases count by spending their money on products and services that meet rigorous standards. Americans who are struggling to make ends meet, or that have been laid off are all too aware of the limited amount of job opportunities and value American made goods. Especially in former manufacturing hubs such as Detroit it is all too clear what has happened as American companies have chosen to go the route of outsourcing. By buying American and asking retailers to carry those products consumers are doing their part to encourage American job growth and supporting the American workforce.
Those looking to take a decided standpoint with their spending make the conscious choice not to buy “made in China” and hunt feverishly for that much coveted “made in America” stamp. Skeptics say that it is impossible to buy all American made goods, and in addition to the scarcity is the fact that it is even more expensive.
