9. Buy American is rubbish?
The reason we're in the crapper is because $20-an-hour manufacturing jobs were shipped overseas leaving us with either no jobs or $12-an-hour jobs.

FWIW, I try to buy American whenever it's possible - and cost is of no concern. I can't always do that, mind you, but I try - and have been my entire life.
