They say "buy American" is so hard to find anything made in America any more. Raymond in the comment below explained the reason perfectly along with the comment "politics get in the way!"

Nope ... and neither will we! Manpower counts for 80% of the costs ... so, first it went to Mexico, and when they got too expensive, it went to China (Communist countries do not have to pay their manpower and they have an endless suppy of manpower), And now they branch out to poor 3rd world countries, where manpower is next to nothing, We call it globalization, where distances and time differences do not exist anymore. There are solutions to bring the manufacturing here again of course ... but politics gets in the way.
