Lets quit being Japan and South Koreas cash cow.
For years, these two countries have been draining billions from our economy. They feed on us.
Yearly, they sell us millions of their cars and trucks. With domino effect, this costs us jobs, jobs, jobs, millions of them. And it seems like we dont give a hoot.
As to why so many of us drive foreign: Do we think theyre cool, better?
Those of us who think that should know J.D. Power reports show American and foreign run neck in neck in quality and dependability.
And we should think about those Toyota safety flaws that we now know about. Why didnt Toyota disclose them years ago and save lives?
Then theres the million or so potentially deadly Honda airbags! How long have they been out there? Like Toyota does Honda have other defects they havent told us about?
Whats latest death count from Japanese vehicle safety defects? 34?
Well, to the brave who still drive them keep your LIFE INSURANCE premiums paid.
Talk about Japanese quality, well, now we know thats a bunch of BS!
Anyway, why is it so many people drive these cars? Well, for 20 years now, publications have been recommending, selling them, in essence.
And theyve done this supposedly for nothing. Thats billions of dollars of free, highly effective advertising thats given Japanese cars an UNDESERVED stamp of quality at the expense of our safety and Americas economy. And these publications supposedly have done this for free? Does this pass the smell test?
Whatever, its been indirect bashing of American industry. And it has taken a drastic toll on our economy. Weve lost millions of jobs as result.
But theres hope: Considering todays 15 million jobless, those of us bitten by ForeignCaritis, might now be reflecting:Just maybe weve helped make things worse. So, when we get our next cars or trucks, our common sense will push us back to AMERICAN ones.
Well realize,Charity begins at home. By driving American, we can help put a lot of people back to work and keep them working!
Bottom line: We need to quit buying and leasing so many foreign cars. Now thats a challenge, considering: Americas top seller is foreign! Ironically, it's one of those potentially deadly Japanese cars!
And because we're such suckers for the Japanese, over there they must really love us. Every year their economy reaps billions from us.
In any case, it makes no sense to let Japan and South Korea leech on us as much as they do. We need to resist their ads and be leery of those publications that keep telling us Asian cars are so hot.
Well, theyre not! Theyre no better! J.D. Power reports tell us that.
And considering what we now know about safety defects in Japanese cars and trucks, theyre flat-out not as good as American ones.
For one thing considering Toyotas stalling, covering up, and that they had to be pushed by Uncle Sam to take actions, how can we have any confidence, trust in Japanese automakers?
Then theres this: Foreign automakers are run from abroad. Uncle Sam has less control of them than of American makers. Driving foreign we have less protection.
But back to the main point here: To help our miserable job situation, we need to focus on how our economy takes it on the chin, when so many of us drive foreign.
If enough of us reflect on this and follow through in our personal choices, we can really help America's job situation.
So, DRIVE AMERICAN: for two darn good reasons:(1) be safer and (2) help our own economy, not some foreign countrys.
P.S. Please join this cause. Hit that little envelope under share at top right and send this message to as many people as possible.
And to those who drive Japanese cars and trucks: LOTS OF LUCK!
