Buy Free or Die: Conservative's Buyer Guide: Automobiles.

Share on Tumblr We can no longer be passive in our buying decisions, brands that we have known and trusted for years have chosen sides and chosen to lead our country in to socialism.  This is the first post in a series to highlight which companies and states contribute to the decline of our American project that was started in 1776.  Whether they be what automobiles you buy or where you take your vacation, we need to show these entities that we will not be sending our money to fund our own destruction.  
     The Autoworkers' unions in the United States are one of the largest contributors to the Democrat Party.  The AFL-CIO head Richard Trumka said that he would like to have the Card Check legislation enacted in Obama's new second term. This would make labor unions almost impossible to stop, they would be present in every section of the country's economy.  As such I am focusing this first post in the Conservative's buyers guide to Automobiles made in the United States.  
     Obama and the labor unions have proclaimed that American jobs are the number one priority in the automobile industry.Well, despite the misconception several foreign car companies provide thousands of jobs to many Americans across the country and they are non-unionized plants.  Any future automobiles that I buy will be from the list I have provided that are labeled non-union.  Democrats suck and so do unions. Carry on. 
-BMW is manufactured in the US in South Carolina.  These plants produce the X3, X5, and X6 models
-The Honda Accord, the Accura RDX and CL, and the CRV assembled in Ohio.  This may affect your decision because they are made in a Blue state.  The Honda Civic is made in Indiana.  The Honda Odyssey, Pilot and Ridgeline are assembled in Alabama
-The Hyundai Elantra and Sonata are assembled in Alabama.  The Hyundai Santa Fe is made in Georgia
-The Kia Sorento is manufactured in Georgia
-The Mercedes GL Class, M Class, and R Class are all assembled in Alabama
-Nissan plants are in Tennessee
-Subaru autos are made in Indiana
-The Suzuki Equator is assembled in Tennessee
-The Toyota Avalon, Camry Hybrid, and Venza are made in Kentucky.  The Highlander, Sequoia, and Sienna are assembled in Indiana.  The Tundra and Tacoma are made in Texas.  The Toyota Camry has plants in Indiana and Kentucky.

  1. Sad that there are no american based company's that haven't drank the koolade. Must be nice to make the kind of money the UAW does for basicly no skill jobs. I doubt any of them could do mine. (maintaining 12 million dollar machines that make computer processors)

    dan,

  3. This is a great idea. Provide a quick visual on who to do business with. I would also point out that Foreign movies don't profit the @sswipes in Hollywood. They may profit socialists in other countries, but that is better than paying the ones in our country.

    Perhaps a foreign movie guide? "Curmudgeonly and Skeptical" has been promoting various foreign movies on his blog lately. Just a suggestion.

  4. PLEASE,

    You still just don't get it..........It's your message causing "our own destruction" . Actually this election proved "our American project" is working just fine, even with the ridiculous amount of super PAC and union dollars. Plus really, do you mean in the long run you will attempt to boycott all American labor unions that supported the Democrats. I thought the GOP was all about good American jobs?

    Let us take a quick look at a few of those evil unions.

    Air Line Pilots Assn union
    National Air Traffic Controllers Assn union
    American Medical Assn
    Communications Workers of America
    United Food & Commercial Workers Union
    United Parcel Service
    Postal Service
    AFL-CIO
    Teamsters Union
    Laborers Union
    Carpenters & Joiners Union
    Intl Brotherhood of Electrical Workers
    Plumbers & Pipefitters
    Machinists & Aerospace Workers Union
    International Assn of Fire Fighters
    Transport Workers Union
    State, County & Municipal Employees
    United Steelworkers
    Ironworkers Union
    etc........

    I hope you enjoy living in your cave. There is a joke there, now isn't there?

    1. No, there isn't. I have no problem with small unions that represent skilled labor, like Carpenters or Plumbers, etc... unless of course they are in league with a state government that mandates no freelance worker can be a carpenter or plumber.

      Unions + Government is the problem, and Unions that are as large as or larger than the corporations they work for. AFL-CIO, UAW, SEIU... Public Employees Unions... these are the problem. If private businesses practiced what these Unions did, they would be accused of forming monopolies or rampant cronyism.

      If you want to know part of the reason new jobs are going overseas, it's partially the cost of union labor. A forklift is an important machine, but no one needs to be paid $30-50 per hour to drive one, *before* benefits. Assembling parts of an iPhone is something that can be taught in a 6-hour training session to a GED-equivalent educated person... it is not highly skilled work.

      I have dual degrees in hard sciences and work in a bio-pharma plant next to union workers. I make more than they do, but not by much. The things I do require a lot of technical expertise, they clean toilets and perform repetitious actions equivalent to a high school dropout - and get overtime doing it. I love what I do and am compensated well for it, but the knowledge of what the union contract affords non-skilled labor is a slap in the face.

    2. Anon,

      You seem to think that unions are the best thing to happen to the workforce since payment in cash instead of high fives. All of the unions that you listed have muscled their way into businesses that are held hostage by outrageous demands. Don't get me wrong, unions were useful when kids still worked in coal mines and women were trapped in sweat shops but they aren't needed anymore. All of those unions are filled with people that would do great work without having to be strong armed by union thugs. It costs less and the laborer will be forced to do better work. Let the market decide the place of the unions. If they are really necessary, the market will demand it.

    3. We are boycotting all American companies that supported Obama and Marxism. That going to be bad for you? Tough...we are now fighting for America and the Constitution; no longer for your job. If you cared about jobs, you would have voted for Romney. If you didn't, then this is the price you will pay. You think voting against America's best interests and for your own is FREE? Surprise!

    4. "American Medical Assn.."

      OOOOOOOOOKKKK.

      This would not be a union, it would be a professional association, hence the word "association". Doctors are not required to join it in order to practice even in the communist states, and the AMA represents less than 30% of American physicians.

  7. Any chance that the beleaguered coal industry could just stop selling coal in the U.S. immediately, instead of waiting for the competition to build more expensive power plants to cut their throat. Then we would see who really has the power, as all of the lights go out.

  10. Mitsubishi has not manufactured in the US since 2010. I suspect the demise of Chrysler had a lot to do with that as they owned a stake in the manufacturing facility as well as quality issues. All new Mitsubishi vehicles sold in the US are manufactured in Japan.

  11. Obviously you have never owned a Ford, Chrysler or some GM cars. I have owned them all, more than once. Of all them, TOYOTA has been the best, both in build and overall quality.
