The Statue of Liberty stands in the waters of New York City.
A mighty woman with a torch whose flame bids a world-wide welcome; her eyes command "Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she with silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Emma Lazarus, 1883
Where does it say, ‘Bring me your wares,
So our people will have no work?’
Sell your products in your own lands,
Let our people get back to work.
If you’d like to build those products here,
We have no problem with that at all;
The American worker is proud,
But by no means will we ever fall.
Patriotism really runs deep,
But not nearly as deep as before;
Traitors have popped up everywhere,
Too many imports now cross our shores.

|A scathing rebuff to 'Real Americans' like myself who really like foreign cars.
It is a beautiful but true rebuff that gives pause for/to much thought.

|Ideally, we ought to be a world community; politics, money, religions, and corrupting power and greed prevent it. Thank you for provoking thought, Paul. Love and blessings,

|GREAT poem Paul - I agree 1000%!!!!
GOD BLESS AMERICA - TO BLESS AMERICA - LET"S BUY AMERICAN!!!
NOTE: In most cases for just a little bit more $ we CAN all buy American.
NEWS: ABC's Good Morning America's anchor, Diane Sawyer, began a "Made in America" pledge this year, saying if every American spent an extra $3.33 on U.S.-made goods, it would create almost 10,000 new jobs in the country. She urged viewers to pledge to buy American and asked individuals to inventory their home to see what percentage of the goods were made in the U.S. How about those dollars!!!!!!

Note to Andy Turner - The Statue of Liberty was a "gift" from the French.

|Yet you bought the statue of liberty from the french!
Maybe it is time to see the brotherhood of man? A new paradigm to some.
