Truckers from across the country plan to descend upon DC like a swarm of motorized locusts to deliver this simple message: Stop corrupting the Constitution!
"Truckers To Shut Down America
" wants to bring DC and hopefully the nation to its knees for three days beginning October 11th, reports
Jason Howerton at The Blaze
. The group claims Americans are "sick and tired of the corruption" riddling the nation:
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! Workers will call in sick! Consumers will not buy or sell anything on this date! Stay home! Buy nothing!
One prominent grievance displayed by the group apart from Obamacare, inflation, and taxation (not to mention the influence of the President's alleged Islamism) is the price of fuel, something of particular importance to truckers. Sentiments were also expressed among supporters on the group's Facebook page
that at times echoed the Occupy
"I am only 24 years old, but for the past ten years I have been a strong supporter in going back to the barter system," said one commenter. "Screw the government, screw the banks, screw big business that buys the corrupt morons in Washington that 'speak on behalf of we the people.'"
Howerton adds: "It is too early to tell if the 'strike' will be successful, but 'shutting down' the nation's capitol would certainly have a huge impact whether you agree or disagree with the tactic."
