Ford is the only American car maker who weathered this terrible economy without taking bailout funds or caving to what many see as an unprecedented and even wholesale takeover by the Obama administration and the unions of American car makers General Motors and Chrysler. Announcing the boycott, Loudon observed, “While it is tragic to see these once proud companies go, since Ford is the only American maker that remains in control of shareholders and not government agents and labor unions, the purchase of a Ford is a strike against big government.”Tea Partiers are encouraging every patriot to consider a Ford as their first car choice. “We are calling this the “Ford for Freedom BUYcott” said Loudon. It is critical that we take a strong stand against creeping socialism. Buying any other American car make is supporting the parasites that have infected the host, so we are calling on liberty loving Patriots who are looking for a car to buy a Ford, and then send us a copy of their receipt so that we can tally our effect”, said Loudon.
