1) If you want to support our troops and make a statement, then campaign to vote out any US politician that isn't fighting to protect US jobs. If they troops have no jobs to come home to, or only jobs with mediocre benefits, then we have done them a dis-service, and have dissed their service to us. 2) remind any bonehead that you see driving a foriegn car with a US flag on it, or one of the those "Support our troops" stickers, that they infact undermine our ability to support our troops.. Think about how many jobs are lost to every car engineered, and manufactured overseas.. No, assembling them in the US is not the same as doing it here. There should be good jobs for our trained forces to come back to. 3) Can any vehicle that you don't REALLY need that is a gas hog. Get an economy car so that we can get off the oil usage binge...(here is the killer, our US manufactures are not getting into the HYBRID vehicle market. GM< FORD< CHRYSLER YOU SUCK!! Two ways,, no really reliable cars are made by you scumbags, hence the foreign car market explosion.) 4) Demand that US stores start selling more "Made in America" products. Shoes, and other goods, can be purchased that are made here for competitive prices, but they are getting much harder to find. The people who still, by luck, have a job making shoes in the US are only a fraction of the workforce it takes to actually make shoes. The suppliers of the materials, the truckers, the techs who fix the equipment, etc... They make up the part of our economy that has been stripped away as well by the slave labor forces in Asia and South America. Without income to the US economy, how do we support our troops? By cutting back on their benefits??? Leaving their loved ones to fend for themselves due to budget woes?? We who remain stateside, while our troops are fighting around the globe, have to get off our asses and get things back on track.. Bill Clinton and George W may be of different politcal parties, and the parties may like to argue how different they are from each other, but in the end the two are very much the same. The only difference is who gets to stuff the money into their pockets. Both the current Democrats and Republicans out to have their asses booted out and their benefits slashed. They have failed the troops and have failed us at home by allowing the economy to get so screwed up. And before you buy a flag to wave when the troops finally end up coming home, please make sure it too is made in the US... Wal-Mart is starting to whore them out to China too.
