Sure, how about a buy America ordinance? One that says no foreign automobiles can be owned, driven or parked in your town. Make sure everyone knows the rules. Publish it in the newspapers and post the rules at the borders to town. Even if you are white, rich and republican, you can’t get out of that law. Have the mayor charge say $1,000 if you dare to drive the Mercedes through town. Don’t pay the fine. Then go to trial.
It is dangerous if the government tells us what we can or cannot buy. Yes, the FDA the Federal Drug Administration bans fish and other products from China and the government tells people they can’t buy fireworks for the 4th of July in some states but those laws are based on safety grounds.
Ok. The other side, we know that FDR signed the “Buy America Act” that helped during the depression. The history books called him an “American hero.” Franklin D. Roosevelt’s law helped people get back on their feet again financially. Would the history books be wrong? This particular ordinance or make it a law even could be the reason a family will not starve. Does driving a foreign made car justify the suffering of your neighbors who are unemployed and soon to be evicted from their foreclosed home? Just send the Lexus back and drive the Dodge American Made Dart already.
We could flip this economy like a pancake, all it would take is for people to BE FORCED TO buy American made products by American companies. Yes, no freedom to even make your own decisions? Think about it. What would you decide if you were the deciding vote in this court?
