We’ve all tried what Detroit had to sell over the years; I’ve done them all.

As I became an adult, I began making decisions about automobile purchases on a different basis: real cost, safety, workmanship, resale value and, yes, style. The European cars offered all that, as did some Japanese models.

Every SUV I bought from 1982 through 2001 was recalled for one reason or another. I chose to buy foreign and could not be happier.

Detroit is a classic example of everything the left (Democratic policies), labor unions and greedy politicians can do and have done to manufacturing in our nation.
