I think this is a great idea………….let’s start now and keep it up forever, not just 1 month!
Are we Americans as dumb as we appear or is it that we just do not think?
While the Chinese, knowingly and intentionally, export inferior products, dangerous toys and goods to be sold in American markets, the media wrings its hands and criticizes the Bush Administration for perceived errors. Yet 70% of Americans believe that the trading privileges afforded to the Chinese should be suspended. Well, duh..why do you need the government to suspend trading privileges? DO IT YOURSELF!!
Simply look on the bottom of every product you buy, and if it says ‘Made in China’ or ‘PRC’ (and that now includes Hong Kong) simply choose another product or none at all. You will be amazed at how dependent you are on Chinese products, however you will be equally amazed at what you can do without.
Who needs plastic eggs to celebrate Easter? If you must have eggs, use real ones and benefit some American farmer.
Easter is just one example – do without cheap Chinese fireworks for July 4th is another example – the point is – do not wait for the government to act. Just go ahead and assume control on your own.
If 200 million Americans refuse to buy just $20 each of Chinese goods, that’s a billion dollar trade imbalance resolved in our favor…fast!! The downside? Some American businesses will feel a temporary pinch from having foreign stockpiles of inventory. ** Downside ??
The solution ?
Let’s give them fair warning and send our own message. We will not implement this UNTIL June 4, and we will only continue it until July 4. That is only one month of trading losses, but it will hit the Chinese for 1/12th of the total, or 8%, of their American exports. Then they will at least have to ask themselves if the benefits of their arrogance and lawlessness were worth it.
Remember, June 4 to July 4, and if it turns out interesting we can arrange to do it to a few other nations that export moral turpitude along with their goods. For goodness sakes, WWII was sixty two years ago, its time they started to pull their own loads. They know how to start wars, let them figure out how to stop them. Can you remember how great it was back in the seventies before we started to export the American dream?
Tell everybody you know about this.
Show them we are Americans – and NOBODY can take us for granted !
If we can’t live without cheap Chinese goods for one month out of our lives, WE DESERVE WHAT WE GET!
Pass it on America !!!
