Does it have to be made in the USA, or NAFTA partners Canada and Mexico? And can buying from here, or nearby help in the long run vs. having it made overseas? Will making it here pollute less and be able to control environmentally under NAFTA regulations? I put this post in this section and not the political forums because I don't want to make it a way to bash political leaders from any countries. I hope the mods agree. I know it's no magic bullet, but from now on, if possible and affordable within reason on my budget, I am going to try and buy here, and Canadian and Mexican products. There are certain things that I can't find from here like many computer high tech products, sneakers, and underwear among other items. But my Levi's are from Mexico and Fender guitars I have owned were built mostly there and in the USA. I am glad that Apple Inc. decided to put one of their customer service centers in Canada, when they could have gone overseas and saved much more money. One day I may upgrade my computer speakers and my guitar amplifier, and there are Canadian, Mexican, and American alternatives to buying from overseas. There is no doubt that an overseas product may offer more value for the dollar and have more features for the dollar, but this is a sacrifice I am willing to make.
