Let’s quit being Japan and South Korea’s 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 don’t give a hoot.

As to why so many of us drive foreign: Do we think they’re 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 didn’t Toyota disclose them years ago and save lives?

Then there’s the million or so potentially deadly Honda airbags! How long have they been out there? Like Toyota does Honda have other defects they haven’t told us about?

What’s 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 that’s 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 they’ve done this supposedly for nothing. That’s billions of dollars of free, highly effective advertising that’s given Japanese cars an UNDESERVED stamp of quality at the expense of our safety and America’s economy. And these publications supposedly have done this for free? Does this pass the smell test?

Whatever, it’s been indirect bashing of American industry. And it has taken a drastic toll on our economy. We’ve lost millions of jobs as result.

But there’s hope: Considering today’s 15 million jobless, those of us bitten by “ForeignCaritis,” might now be reflecting:“Just maybe we’ve helped make things worse.” So, when we get our next cars or trucks, our common sense will push us back to AMERICAN ones.

We’ll 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 that’s a challenge, considering: America’s 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, they’re not! They’re no better! J.D. Power reports tell us that.

And considering what we now know about safety defects in Japanese cars and trucks, they’re flat-out not as good as American ones.

For one thing considering Toyota’s 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 there’s 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 country’s.

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!
