The real irony to those stickers is how much of our "Domestic" vehicles are actually made here in the US. Not nearly as much as we would like to believe I'm sure. Last I heard a vehicle only has to have 25% of its work done here in the US to be considered domestic. Think of how many of the parts of these new vehicles are built in other countries.
With that being said I have never owned nor do I plan to own any of the Japanese, Chinese, etc.... automakers vehicles.
My post mearly has to do with what the third poster implied. That being about Michigan and the auto industry. I am all for not buying everyday goods and what not from overseas and that might be what the original posters intent was. I kind of jumped the gun due to myself living in Michigan and seeing all of these auto workers running around with these stickers on their vehicles. They fail to see the irony though.
