    The cruel irony in this is the most conservative people in this country are buying these nameplates and unknowingly, or unwittingly supporting the highest paid union workers in the world with the best benefits to boot. They just won a 28.5 hour work week, down from the brutal 35 hours in the previous contract.

    The cumulative intelligence of the voters that put these people in office can fit on the head of a pin.

    I don't want German but USA made autos. I have three German autos, two built in Germany and one in the USA. Any guess which one has the most repairs?

    Useless thread that is only based on provocation and applause from regulars -table- brothers.
    The question you should ask yourself: may free people decide freely ?
    Develop good products (of which there are countless examples in USA) and the market will reward it.
    Nobody buys a Heym(Merkel,Krieghoff ) double rifle here, or a Blaser R8 because they like the Germans so much, but the product is right.
    What has the USA to fear, if German cars are just crap like you think, why the excitement?

    Because people in this country buy hyped marketing. Example? Jeep has one of the worst reliability records but is one of the top sellers. Why? Because you can climb a mountain with it. Vortex scopes have a high return rate but since the name is catchy, people buy them. Foxi, you probably need to be born and raised in the U.S. to understand this thought process. Remember when people bought Pet Rocks? Did that make any sense? Consumers in this country are all about cachet, status and trying to keep up with the Joneses. Guaranteed, one person buys a Mercedes, his next door neighbors are going to go out and buy something better or what they perceive to be better. This is America, there ain't no other place like it on the planet.

    Edit: People in German are no different. They buy Merkel, Heim, etc. because they want to ber perceived as buying something better than the next guy. Those rifles don't shoot any better than a lot of mass produced rifles. They may look better but I'd challenge any one of them to shoot better than a no name one I built myself or came out of a plant in the U.S.

    Hogpatrol,
    I can sign every sentence you say,besides real quality differences,wherever,vanity and status behaviour seem to be firmly anchored in human nature.

    @ Longwalker:
    Thirty years ago I first visited Disneyworld, Florida, as a curious person I was always interested in where the product I was holding in my hands came from.
    Nothing that was sold or offered there, but nothing at all, was made in the USA. Neither the bathrobe or furniture in the Hotel Swan (wonderful time there), nor T-shirts, postcards and other souvenirs were produced in the USA. Even the beef in the restaurants didn't come from the country.
    Everything came from Asia and South America.
    When we left the park, there were lots of cars driving around with the sticker "buy US".
    Touched me strangely.
