But there's nothing wrong with buying America if you believe that 'Merica can give you a better product (which is in many cases true... but this definitely does not stand as a general rule).

The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.
"More are created to replace the obsolete job." So why would there EVER be unemployment? Let me guess? Taxes? Taxes employs collectors. Outsourcing? Outsourcing employs transportation and shipment people. You know the obvious answer, NOT more are created.

By your argument, employment should have been steadily declining since the start of the industrial revolution. It's an argument that's been continuously repeated yet has no factual basis behind it.
Hell, there are many places in Africa that has very little innovation and automation, Employment must be through the roof over there .
I do not think about the jobs that a wheel stole or killed, because I'm not the one who claims unemployment is bad.
Do you perhaps consider that the only reasons industrial revolution hasn't sent employment down the drain are: population has increased, international trade has become efficient, inflation and debt has increased (meaning lots of white collar jobs were created by borrowed money), consumption and desires have increased. If we were willing to live by the standards (be in living space, food supply, education, transportation, health standard) of the 1800s, employment would be close to zero.
Again, I will ask : What is good about employment or bad about unemployment, if you take out the concern of money?

By your logic the increase of unemployment in this graph was caused by a sudden increase of innovation and automation. Unemployment is caused by many things. In this case the Business Cycle and Malinvestment do to the market correcting it's self, caused by artificially low interest rates. Protectionism is another cause.
You gotta be kidding me, just because drinking rat poison kills you, means everybody can only die from drinking rat poison?
Unemployment is caused by many things........... Like I EVER SAID OTHERWISE!
Back to the original topic, it looks like the inventor ended up selling the company (or going in a joint venture) with DeeZee to do the manufacturing and it is 100% produced in the United States:
"As shown on TV, the Invis-A-Rack was intended for production in the USA and the inventor, Donny McCall, would not accept anything less. Dee Zee has fulfilled that promise with 100% production in America’s heartland. Use of highest quality materials and precision manufacturing makes the Invis-A-Rack a truly American born innovation."
So, apparently another successful American company thought it would be profitable to make the product in the United States (at least for the time being).

Buy American fallacy? pfft.... STFU!
Rebuilding America 5% at a time.

In America today there remains two factions.
The Federalist and the Anti-Federalist.
Neither of the two dominating political parties belong to the latter.
You can't be one and the other..
