My wife was doing laundry with our children and started writing down where the clothing was made. Not much was made in the U.S.A.
- Czech Republic
- Dominican Republic
- Costa Rica
Yes, there was an item Made in the U.S.A., but it was about 25 years old!
The people of the United States have lost the capability to produce their own clothing and many other necessities. What will we do if war comes to the world? I can answer this for you.Â We will suffer.Â Our nation used to be able to produce anything we needed from the natural resources within our borders.Â Sadly, that knowledge and infrastructure has been lost.
I remember, back in the 80’s, when Wal-Mart tried to spur American manufacturing.Â Sam Walton penned this letter to spur a change in the United State’s ever-widening trade deficit. The following quote is underlined for emphasis in the letter.
Our Wal-Mart Company is firmly committed to the philosophy of buying everything possible from suppliers who manufacture their products in the United States.
U.S. manufacturers could compete if there was a corporate will to do so. Sadly, the next quarter’s bottom line and the laws of our country almost mandate that our manufacturing capability be moved outside of the country.
I believe that hard times are on the horizon, perhaps even war.Â Anyone have a good loom for sale?
And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you; — I Thessalonians 4:11 (KJV)
