Home » 1 Million Truckers to Protest Obama by Shutting America Down for 3 Days in October
As someone whose family operates a trucking company, there was no surprise when the announcement to organize a 1 million trucker march in October appeared online at reagancoalition.com and on a Facebook page.
According to reagancoalition.com:
There is a Facebook page called “Truckers to Shutdown America.” This is one of the messages they posted:
My fellow patriot this effort is to support the truckers in a major shut down of America ion [sic] a 3 day strike October 11th thru 13th. Obamacare will be in effect and most people will be ready to take action. No commerce on those days stock up on items that you will need. No banking no shopping no money transactions.
It does not matter if a million or 50 roll through DC in this effort. Congress will listen to We the People. Which is remove Obama from office for crimes of treason and misdemeanors. We want Congressional hearing on Benghazi and Seal Team 6. Louis Learner [sic] put in jail. No amnesty, remove all Muslims in our government that do not uphold the Constitution. Remove Eric Holder from office for crimes against the people and the Constitution. Last but not least is Fuel prices.
Another post on the site states:
Breaker 1 9 calling on all Trucker to shut America down for three days October 11-13. The American people are bleeding out with no relief in sight. It is time to change the NEWS. Let us show our elected officials that we are 100% fed up with corruption and the blatant disregard of the Constitution that they swore to defend.
Bob tail it hammer down to the bull$hit city with flags flying high.
One poster had a suggestion for truckers living in the “postage stamp size states:”
For you men and women already in the postage stamp sized states. Would not be much for you to “go over miles” especially with company directions and happen to show up in DC. OOPS!
So far, the page has gathered over 10,000 likes.
Supporting posts are popping up all over the page. One writes, “If the drivers refuse to move the trucks for that time frame, what are the big companies going to do??? Fire all the drivers? They have to stick together just like the Bikers did. We can do it!”
Another poster suggested that truckers also stop where they were and refuse to start up again until they were heard. “We need to overwhelm the system,” the poster states.
According to one man, not all company drivers have internet access. He suggests that truckers be on the CB radio at truck stops passing the word.
It is estimated there are approximately 150,000 independent/ owner-operators across the country. If every one of those truckers descended on Washington DC, it would make more than a big statement. Adding patriotic company drivers would increase the message. By halting the transport of goods throughout the country and ceasing all money transactions and shopping for three days, it would signal a nationwide peaceful protest against the tyranny in Washington.
I, for one, intend to support the trucker community in their endeavors. That should come as no surprise from someone who was described as an “ignorant, stupid, brain dead right-wing woman” since the family trucking company will be participating.
A million bikers drove through Washington; several thousand trucks sure can. I think the truckers, along with a few patriotic Americans in cars, pickup trucks and SUVs, would be just the ticket to tell all of those who are intent on trashing our Constitution they are dealing with Americans – a sleeping giant if you will. It can be done America. We must stand together.
Mark your calendars folks for October 11th through October 13th and support the Million Trucker March. Make sure you have enough provisions to last approximately 30 days as it could take that long to restock stores with goods.
I’ll leave you with some appropriate song lyrics by William D. Fries, Jr.:
Coz we got a little convoy rockin’ thru the night
Yeah we got a little convoy aint she a beautiful sight
Come on and join our convoy aint nothin’ gonna get in our way
We gonna roll this truckin’ convoy across the USA
