That's awesome.

I'm surprised Caterpillar is not on there...

Things I own/consume from that list:

Jeep
Several pairs of Levi's
Coca-Cola
Hershey's products
Colgate
2 Zippos
Louisville Slugger
Craftsman Tools
Smith & Wesson

Colt or Springfield Armory would have made more sense over S&W though. Behold...


That's a 10/30 mag in case anybody is wondering.

What makes a brand "patriotic" other than clever marketing and public perception? Does it matter that some of these companies on the list aren't American owned and/or manufactured anymore?

Fiat Wrangler? Not a criticism, just an observation.

I think it is public perception, nothing more.

Ford at #16?

They are just recently giving the US vehicles that the rest of the world have had for years. Even now other countries get a new Ranger while we go without.
That doesn't seem very patriotic to me.
