I stopped worrying about preferring to "buy American" after I owned two GM cars in the 70's and 80's that were both pieces of crap.
Some may think that way, but does that make it right? We aren't robots, we do have a conscience, well at least some of us do.
I agree,...and I don't care where it comes from and who made it. If I need or want it and can afford, I will buy it.
And it goes back to the buy 'local' thing as well. Why should I buy local when MSRP is saying $200 and the retailer is selling it for $450,...and I can get it shipped online for $300? Screw it,...want to rip me off, go out of business. If the item is in demand someone else will come along and sell it.
And to further that, especially from the point of view that everything comes from China,...I feel no guilt buying stuff from China or anywhere else over (from my country) Canadian made goods,....because I was not the corporation that decided that offshore manufacturing would be better for the company's bottom line (screwing local workers) and,....I wasn't the government who granted permission for such moves to take place.
Looking out for #1 because no one else will.
My .02 cents
I'm not opposed to buying American cars; my current vehicle is a Ford pickup. Since my lousy experience with GM junk, I have owned quite a quite satisfactory Toyota, a Mazda, a Nissan, and three Fords. But yes, I do bear a grudge against GM and would never buy another, no matter what Consumer Reports says about them.
