Truckers Ride Oct 11, 12, 13: No Freight Hauling, 3-Day Traffic Jam, Flags Flying – How You Can Help Locally, Where to Meet-Up
by Maggie • October 3, 2013
The Truckers Ride for the Constitution is still on. The government may be shut down today but will likely be back in business by October 11th when a three-day All-American Traffic Jam is planned for the D.C. area. HOWEVER, if you cannot make it to D.C., gather groups of Patriots and ride on the Capital of your state. Not everyone can afford the time to get to D.C., or the gasoline, thanks to Obama’s lack of a pro-American energy policy. Some 3,000 truckers are planning to forego their livelihood (hauling freight) to #MakeDCListen and ride for our Constitution. Motorcycles, RVs, cars, pick-ups and tractors are welcome to Ride for the Constitution. See details of participating in your local area and Washington, D.C. below. If you are a driver working and will be on the Interstates, fly a flag and try to get into a convoy before delivering your load.
As thousands of federal employees wonder where their next paycheck is coming from amid a government shutdown, around 3,000 truckers plan to descend on Washington, D.C., in an effort to shut it down further by not hauling freight for a whole weekend.
“The shutdown is actually a traffic jam,” former country music star and event organizer Zeeda Andrews told U.S. News. “This is a three-day traffic jam.”
According to Ms. Andrews, there are two reasons the truckers are striking.
“The first is a range of frustrations experienced by independent truck drivers not employed by a large company or affiliated with a union,” U.S. News reported.
But truckers are also targeting the Obama administration. A list addressing “corruption against our Constitution” and demands that the president be removed from office will be delivered to lawmakers before the ride, the organizer told the paper, and lawmakers can call off the protest if they agree to them.
“Obama said last week it’s my way or the highway, and the people are choosing the highway,” Ms. Andrews said. “It’s viral, it’s like a fire, it’s burning out of control [and] people really want to help because their issues are the same as the truckers are having. … All Americans and all truckers agree on one thing: Barack Obama is a threat to American safety.” Read more at The Washington Times
Ms. Andrews is asking that we participate by spending zero dollars for three days. Get your necessaries like gasoline before the 11th, dittos groceries and anything else you must have for the three day period of October 11th, 12th and 13th, 2013.
Plan for it get your gas and everything you will need in advance if 50% of the people do this. The tax revenue for those three days will hurt the establishment anywhere from 10 to 15 Billion dollars.
Some specific info (mostly taken from Andrews’ post linked above:
1. Trucker Earl Conlon is calling on all truckers in their State Capitals to Rally to the Capital to show support. We understand not everybody can afford the fuel to make the DC RIDE but this is a United effort.
