Fair enough, but I don't think we're on the same page. Paperclip was saying that he likes his stuff made in the USA and I pointed out that a number of trad items were well within the "trad canon" that are NOT from the USA (e.g. Irish sweaters, tweed from the UK).I'm not concerned with the ethnic heritage of the people who make the clothes I buy. I just tend to prefer that my stuff is "made in USA".
Now, if you tell me that you like Irish sweaters and tweed, but only when they're made in the USA, that's different than the point Paperclip and I were going back-and-forth on. If, however, you tell me that foreign-made stuff is OK as long as it's a tweed, Irish sweater, or the like, then that puts you in the same camp as P.C.
Either way, I'm truly not trying to make a moral judgment. As a fiscal conservative who believes in laissez faire economics, I disagree with promoting "Made in the USA" consumer goods (unless there is some unique reason they can ONLY be made here or the USA industries can provide the same quality at a better price than an overseas competitor). However, I certainly recognize that there is another side to that argument and respect it.
