Some of the people on this forum say "Volvo Sucks".
No they don't. Indeed they build really good vehicles.
Volvo, like so many other foreign manufacturers, are
simply responding to market conditions that allow them to
buy our businesses, build and sell their products in our country,
and to profit from doing so. And then take our money away.
If we simply continue to do the "same old, same old", we will
continue to get the exact same results.
What's the definition of insanity?
Something about doing the same thing over and over - and expecting
If we don't stop the madness, then the madness will continue.
It doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure it out.
Everybody can do their part - no matter how small.
For instance - stop supporting Mobil, Sunoco, BP and other oil companies
who buy overseas oil.
Instead - Use Quik-Fill or companies that use US petroleum only.
Not sure? Ask them. The good guys are quick to tell you they only buy American oil.
Stop buying cheap Chinese junk from Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Lowes, and hundreds
of others. Check it out before you buy, and buy only US products, whenever possible. It's simple.
Just think before you get out your wallet. You might not even buy anything, if you stop and think.
If enough people do it, the problem will solve itself.
There's nothing wrong with Volvo, Toyota, Honda, or any others. Indeed most of the
products are darn good. And, they are playing by the rules that we put in place.
You want change - so Change. Stop complaining and just Change.
I personally am buying only local groceries. And buying only US made clothes and shoes, if possible.
And only US made vehicles by American manufacturers. And US gasoline whenever possible.
My observations are that the groceries are better - a lot better, and a little more money.
The clothes are definitely more expensive, but generally better made, and better warranted.
They last longer, so I don't buy as much.
As for the vehicles - well two out of three isn't bad. Our big three manufacturers are being way overcharged
for labor, and are far too interested in their shareholders, rather than quality, to really produce a good
vehicle. But I still support them. I think we have to in order to survive as a country as we know it.
How many people know that the US government borrowed the money for your latest Economic Stimulus check
from the Chinese government?
Shocked? It's 100% true. Hundreds of millions of dollars up in smoke.
We just sit back and let it happen.
Then we complain.
I sound like a broken record - but,
Wake up America. Wake up while there's still time.
