I do not live in a small town, but I would like to. My parents came from a small town in Nebraska and I loved visiting when I was a child. I thought the buildings and homes were charming and a stark contrast to the modern architecture of today.
I liked the cafes and diners. You did not see chain restaurants like today. I always find it amusing that you can go to big cities all over the country and see the same restaurants, bookstores and drug stores in the same strip malls.
In big cities, you do not see many single-owned businesses like in past years. The good thing about these single-owned family businesses was they operated solely in America and the profits stayed in America. Now some big businesses outsource many jobs and the profits end up in another country.
There are however, some companies that do not outsource. One is Ramblers Way Farm. They make fine woolen apparel by growing, producing and employing people here in America to make their apparel. They also located to small towns that where economically challenged and have helped these towns recover financially.
Ramblers Way Farm epitomizes the term Made in America. These days it is hard to find many products manufactured solely in the United States. Finding products produced here should be important to every American. Especially since these are tough economic times.
It is possible that if more companies committed to producing only domestic product and employing only American citizens to manufacture the product, maybe the economy would rebound sooner.
