Why do Chinese people prefer to send their hard earned money overseas?

We all know how "popular" and "great" american products are, but with so many homegrown alternatives, why do so many Chinese people prefer to spend money on products where a large portion of the money leaves China? I thought Chinese people were proud and united.

Some of the types of products with comparable products made in China by Chinese companies include:

Lenovo vs. Apple 
Xaomi or Oppo vs. Samsung 
Kuaidi Dache and Didi Dache vs. Uber 
Lenovo or Changhong vs. Philips
Huawei vs. Cisco 
Midea vs.  GE
JD.com or 360.com or Tmall vs. Amazon
WeChat vs. Skype  
163.com or Sina or QQ  vs. Gmail (heh heh) (If you think email is free, you have not been paying attention)
Haier vs. GE or Whirlpool
Li Ning vs. Nike


I buy only Chinese brands. My money is spent and stays right here in China. Can you say the same? The only recent purchase I made from an overseas company was my Benq monitor. Didn't read the fine print. 


Why do so many Chinese people want to sell out their own country/culture to line the pockets of greedy US company shareholders who would sell their own mothers for the right price?
