I'm not trying to be a wiseguy or pick on anyone. My point is only that what people may want to do is often not what the masses are willing to do.
And I buy US made products whenever possible
Recently I needed a drink refrigerator for the house and instead of buying some china crap I purchased a $1500 made in USA commercial Truecool unit.

It will be far more than $920 if every single part is made here in the US.

Delete- I had a big response prepared but all it’s going to do is get the thread locked.

Only if you got all emotional and irrational.

If you just kept to the facts it wouldn't get shut down.

Facts that are considered political comments get shut down on this site. But not equally, based on what gets taken down.

I saw the post before he deleted it (smart decision, BTW). It was pretty data-based and fact-based. It was certainly not irrational, but a bit emotional and definitely political.
