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.

TEN FOUR !

Attention all teamsters and owner operators, make plans now to participate in the BIG show !

IMHO, this would also be a protest against high fuel and gas prices at the pump, which has united us before !

Might just wake up a LOT of people, if it happens.

Trucker strikes have been talked about and planned

time and time again for decades JO, and honestly, I never saw one organize and actually come through nationally. The event usually melts when it comes to potentially losing their jobs or being federally arrested on technicalities for messing with some freights. I drove semis for a while too. I remember hearing them being planned occasionally, and not much happening when the day came.

There's a whole lot of federal laws that apply to truck driving. Often what you're hauling is governed by federal laws, not just local police. I'll be amazed if there's much participation. Owner-operators have more ability to do that kind of thing because it's much easier for them to refuse loads. Hired drivers in company equipment don't, which is the majority of them.

The only other thing they can do to avoid the consequences is take vacation time, or call off sick, but that means a half a week of no pay also.

But if they can't move, they

But if they can't move, they can't move. Organization or not, if it stalls, everything stalls. What's the protest? Obamacare is a LOSER.

Truckers were the first organized resistance to Pinochet in Chile.

and Kissinger is still the commonality....how disgusting is that? And Hillary hugged him at the Global Initiative. How disgusting is that?

Big 4 on that driver

"The truckers are coming to save us" is a meme unto itself. Not only that but "shut down America" or even a single city?

So that means truckers don't let emergency services like fire and EMS to get through?

Yeah, uh, you don't understand truckers.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

What's worse? The slow death

What's worse? The slow death and death panels of Obamacare and rising healthcare costs and premiums, with no controls, at the expense of sovereign citizens and businesses alike or the inconvenience of the day or 3 day or 2 week protest? People and citizens of this country have far more compassion than the Federal Government, clearly, and people will help people, versus a government content on control and oppression and the destruction of our freedoms and erosion of our inherent rights. Hey we can play the collective good on this one too. What's wrong, what's good for the geese is not good for the gander? Bring it on bitches.
And do keep an eye on those sneaking freaks that want to infiltrate and spy on the movement. Let's hear it for grassroots movements. And may the pension scammers get IOUs and a government shut down out of it. May they be protesting austerity like Greece. They chose their own destiny at the expense of others, and I can tell you that people are fed up, expect for the group thinkers and loyalists, the voting blocks, those police and teachers and the government unions. They are not the voice of the people. They are the ignorant voice of the Group Thinkers. They are the unproductive class.
Truckers Unite!

Mine's a truckin' family.

Quick search reveals nothing on www.ooida.com or www.overdriveonline.com .

But I wouldn't put it past a lot of truck drivers. They listen to XM radio for hours on end and are a rough and tumble bunch akin to bikers. And for being a 'deregulated' industry they sure are well-regulated.

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

make it a 30 day thing

and it'll sho nuff wrankle dey azzez

Just 15 will do

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.
