It was once a rallying cry. But we lost that one, along with the jobs. I remember when WalMart ran a big ad campaigns showcasing “Made in the USA” labels on thier merchandise – I think they meant the labels. That campagin crashed when it was revealed to be a lie. Not that anyone beleived them anyway.
