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 one million trucker march in October appeared online at reagancoalition.com and on a Facebook page.

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.

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.

Some please clarify something for me

So some of you are calling for - the teamsters and longshoremen to join in on this.

You do realize these unions are some of Obama's biggest pals right?

Do you stop to think things through or are we still in the uninformed stages of our awakening. There is no way in hell those unions would strike against Obummer - and IF, IF they do - you best believe its not to help you so watch the eff out.

And I also chuckle - you all go ahead and stop your trucks on I-95 here in CT and "refuse" to move it. Let me explain how it will work.

The DOT will pull in front of your truck(followed quickly by at least two state troopers, an econ police and however many local police are in the mood to have "fun")
They will then remove your ass from the truck - if you refuse - they wont bother grabbing you - they will just give you 30 seconds before the dog that just arrived on scene makes dinner out of your ass
They will arrest you, pull your card and make sure you never drive again
They will then call in a wrecker and tow your truck and your trailer right off the damn highway.

They will then make special note of the carrier you drive for - and I assure you - that carrier wont go 2 miles in this state without being pulled over for a roadside inspection.

And none of this will matter to any official in DC - not one bit. All that will happen is those on the fence will jump to the other side because they will not want to be associated with that.

And don't forget - once they show the first welfare recipient whos crack baby was crying because they couldn't get formula - Obama will look like a damn hero for using the great and powerful arm of the Federal leviathan to get those supplies moved.
And the country will cry for more big government to prevent this kind of inhumanity. They will beg for more government - and those in DC will be happy to oblige.

You've advocated violence at

You've advocated violence at least twice within this thread. And against people partaking in civil disobedience. Be an internet gangster if you want to, (we all know that you aren't going to go out and start shooting truck drivers)but it would probably be better if you did it elsewhere. I'd say that a fair amount of the members here abide by the N.A.P. Keep in mind while you're out shooting at truckers, that many truckers themselves carry firearms. I'm sure you'd be outnumbered.

(My apologies. This post was a direct response to Sandra and was posted in the wrong place.)

We have to try something -

We have to try something - even if it is a plot to cover up the looming financial collapse. 3 days of everyone staying at home - no commerce - no buying anything - very powerful statement.

I am in, just hope we get enough people so they can't fire everyone.

Comical.

If they were serious they would not pick a weekend when things are partially shut down anyway, and they would do it for several weeks. Even the French know how to shut down their economy through strikes; come on fellows.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

OOOPs.

.

If you already had an

If you already had an understanding of how the coming economic crisis is going to affect this country, you'd know that it's going to affect commerce anyway. My first thought on this was "Is someone coordinating the collapse?" Can't help it. I see anything even remotely close to the scenario we are going to see, I have to as questions. John Williams' hyperinflation report says the hyperinflation/collapse is going to affect all commerce in this country. And we know there are a lot of things going on with Fed changes and other govt preparations in September/October. Why would anyone want to strike and hurt the people of the country as well as protesting Obama? Doesn't seem to make sense to me.

I can sense and see that the

I can sense and see that the social media loyalists are hitting up the Daily Paul. Truth hurts that bad! What a bunch of pussies.

You are a loyalist / social media kind, no?

3 days? It's a good start.

They should shoot for a whole week later on.

All Muslims???

WTF--how dumb.

"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."

It should say all people. Seems they don't mind if Christians and Jews or atheists don't follow the Constitution.

Unfortunately

Most truck drivers are hardcore far right rednecks that hate foreigners coming and taking their jobs.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

I get it.

And Obama's a Muslim, you know ;)

The Teamsters decide when and if to strike; what says Hoffa?

The Teamsters decide when and if to strike; what says Hoffa about this idea? Does he intend to let the President know his scheme to kill millions of truckers early with lousy healthcare is not a good idea?

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

Why not shut things down ....

before Obamacare can take effect?

Yes! What's up with that?

Hmmmm.

I don't understand the

I don't understand the purpose of this. What is it they hope to achieve? Who is organizing this so effectively?

I agree. I'm thinking the

I agree. I'm thinking the same thing. John Williams' hyperinflation report says that the collapse will affect all commerce in this nation. We're seeing all these things coming to a head in possibly October with all the preparations. Why now? Why hurt Americans at the same time as attempting to hurt Obama? Why? I can't help but ask questions. I agree with you. Something is wrong with this.

Independents

Are the only ones that can do this I think.

The pumpkin company drivers and those like them will not be allowed.

Are there still that many independents and small family companies around?

Those pumpkin and alike companies are surprisingly still hauling freight???

Everybody has to start somewhere but I do not think sending these green drivers halfway across the country in all different terrains is going to keep people around for the long haul so to speak.

ie. someone from the plains should not be sent over mountains or to NYC in their first few runs lol

The average trucking fleet in

The average trucking fleet in America is 4 semi trucks. What does this number represent? It represents those that have 1 truck or 1,000 trucks in their fleet, with the average being 4. What does this number represent, as 4 is pretty low?
It represents the huge number of independent truckers that own 1 truck, thus lowering the average to just 4.

MAY THE JAM THE BELTWAY AND MAJOR INTERSTATES.

TRUCKERS....UNITE....SHUT IT DOWN!

ALL THOSE THAT SUPPORT THE TRUCKERS, UNITE. ALL THOSE WHO'S JOBS ARE DEPENDENT ON TRANSPORTATION, UNITE.

WHERE THE MEDIA IGNORES THE TRUTH, WHERE THE SCHOOLS TEACH GROUP THINK AND INDOCTRINATION, WHERE THE GOVERNMENT PLAYS CHILDISH GAMES OF 2 SIDEDNESS, THE TIME HAS COME TO SHOW AMERICA WHAT DISSENT MEANS.

THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE SEEN ON TELEVISION.

IT CAN BE SEEN IN BACKED UP TRAFFIC JAMS FOR MILES....ISN'T PROTEST GREAT? THE FAILED URBAN AGENDA IS THE PROBLEM WITH THE TRAFFIC JAMS, SHUT DOWN THE URBAN AGENDA.

Be Your Own Media!!!

1 million truckers ...????

1 million bikers ...?? probably more like 2,800 and 5,000....

This is a suicide move

Any dumbass trucker that imprisons other drivers on a highway and refuses to let them move should be shot and burned. And will.

Not so

If they do this even many in the Commercial Service Industry like myself will shut down also. All residual tourists and travelers will also be shut down. So with NOBODY moving they are imprisoning NOBODY.

If ANYONE in this country has clout it is the transportation industry. Sounds like a 3 day barbeque and party just waiting to happen in my lot. I'll buy!

I am so sick of folks not willing to be inconvenienced being the problem.

I hope the Longshoremen get ahold of this one and spread the news to their friends long and far......

Be Your Own Media!!!

Quick send out the news long

Quick send out the news long and far to all independent truckers and fleets alike. This is good political action. As good as it gets.

I support the truckers! I get out of their way too!

The message needs to be posted in every truck stop and EAT nationwide.

If there is an official banner, I will print it and go put it up at the nearest truck stop that gets a lot of traffic on a major interstate.

Be Your Own Media!!!

What a great way to get shot

Because to hold others captive on a highway just to make a point, deserves it. Move it or lose it. No trucker is gonna restrict where I can go.

Won't it suck

if the trucker shoots back?
