Most of the conservatives I know drive domestic cars, but then quite a few parts of my Volvo are made by AC Delco, Volvo is now owned by Ford, Saab is now GM, my previous vehicle was a Ford but quite a few pieces of it was Japanese, and every car I've owned including the Saab has been bought from an american, I paid (and continue to pay) taxes to the american government, I buy fuel here in america, insurance, many of the consumables, etc. Perhaps you could bring up a few of those points when people give you flak.
