WHY ARE TRUCKERS THREATENING TO ‘SHUT DOWN WASHINGTON, D.C.’ FOR THREE DAYS STRAIGHT?


A group of truckers is reportedly planning to shut Washington, D.C. down for three days straight starting on Oct. 11 to protest the “corruption against the Constitution.”
The “Truckers To Shut Down America” Facebook page has more than 16,000 likes, though it is unclear how many truckers actually intend on taking part in the disruptive protest.

“The American people are sick and tired of the corruption that is destroying America! We therefore declare a GENERAL STRIKE on the weekend of October 11-13, 2013! Truck drivers will not haul freight! Americans can strike in solidarity with truck drivers!” the group’s description reads.
In a YouTube video uploaded by user “Kevin Allan” and linked on the “Truckers To Shut Down America” Facebook page, the event is labeled as a general “strike” by the American people against the federal government and its “bulls**t.”

A revolution is coming — a revolution which will be peaceful if we are wise enough; compassionate if we care enough; successful if we are fortunate enough — But a revolution which is coming whether we will it or not. We can affect its character; we cannot alter its inevitability.

Speech in the United States Senate (9 May 1966)

How can there be? Most owe more than they will ever earn for their rig. Stop a day and the bank goon with the Sheriff will be there.

I was just on their website on Facebook and they're asking the American people to not go shopping or spend any money October 11-13. I do have to go to the doctor's on the 11th but I can survive well without going anywhere for that time. They have my support. They're talking about expanding it to a week.

Having read the link and viewed the vids, I can say with certainty that this guy is functionally insane.

He say's "Congress will listen" Uh, no they won't. Because this wannabe movement is STUPID.

And how many truckers will actually participate in this show of nothingness, only to tick-off their employeer's losing profit, with the potential of getting fired.

The main dude is a serious loser who doesn't REALLY give a dang about anyone but his own twisted views and trying to draw other people into it.

Now now, but I give you a like for precisely describing the reaction of Congress (besides hounding the DC police to get them off their racetrack).
