Ron's List of Products Made in the USA
Compiled by Ron Crawley, current as of November 27, 2011

Hey, I prefer buying many items from foreign sources. If you want Mandarin Oranges or Water Chestnuts, why would you not buy from China?  Japan still has great electronics and place settings.  Italians make the best shoes, Germans the best beer (arguably), and only the French produce "real" champagne.  But if a quality item can be made in the USA at a reasonable price, I would prefer that any day.  Especially things that I will use for a long time or that I will need to depend on. 

So call me a Xenophobe or whatever you wish, I here offer my list of Made in the USA items for your consideration.
