More ‘patriots’ should drive American-made cars

Driving into work this morning I found myself behind a small Ford vehicle bearing a large sign in its back window with the old adage “America … Love it or Leave it.” It is my recollection that this maxim dates back to the days of the original airing of the classic television sitcom, “All in the Family,” when Archie Bunker exclaiming same brought much laughter as well as deep thought for many Americans.

Seeing this sign today brought back fond memories of the character Archie Bunker, but also made me appreciate and want to applaud the driver of this Ford for his patriotism. It was reassuring to me to see someone who not only proudly talks the talk, but walks the walk of patriotism by owning a vehicle manufactured by an American company.
