1 Million Truckers to Protest Obama by Shutting America Down for 3 Days in October

Update, It seems there are two events:

and

Truckers To Shut Down America

https://www.facebook.com/truckerstoshutdownamerica

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 30,000 likes, though it is unclear how many truckers actually intend on taking part in the protest.

In an article posted on  September 18, 2013 by Dean Garrison on the DC Clothes Line it is stated: “Remember the feeling you had one week ago today as an estimated 880,000 bikers rolled into Washington D.C.? Well it would seem that this historic event may have inspired more Patriotic Americans to do their part to send a loud message to the tyrants in Washington. On Sunday a Facebook page sprang up called “Truckers to Shut Down America.” At the time of this writing there are a little over 18,000 likes, so it would seem that there are more than a handful of people who like the idea. To give you a point of reference, it took us 9 months to get 22,000 likes on The D.C. Clothesline Facebook Page. They might top that 4 days.”

Considering the time frame their facebook page is growing quickly.

From the groups Facebook page:

About

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!
Description

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!

From Freedom Outpost: “Supporting posts are popping up all over the page. One writes, “If the drivers refuse to move the trucks for that time frame, what are the big companies going to truckdo??? Fire all the drivers? They have to stick together just like the Bikers did. We can do it!” Another poster suggested that truckers also stop where they were and refuse to start up again until they were heard. “We need to overwhelm the system,” the poster states. “
It is estimated there are approximately 150,000 independent/ owner-operators across the country. If every one of those truckers descended on Washington DC, it would make more than a big statement. Adding patriotic company drivers would increase the message. By halting the transport of goods throughout the country and ceasing all money transactions and shopping for three days, it would signal a nationwide peaceful protest against the tyranny in Washington.

Their Facebook page states on a post from 9/18/3013:
Goals:
1. Shut down truck deliveries of goods nationwide for three days.
2. Convoy to Washington, D.C.
3 General strike by the American population. No shopping. No paying bills. No using money for three days.

Just recently, it was estimated over a million motorcycles descended on DC in a protest against government tyranny and to show support for 9-11 victims.

    Truckers and their families, if you want real respect, read and comprehend this comment.

    Truckers spend too much time sitting on their brains. I use to be a owner operator, and I sold my trucks when fuel passed $1.00 per gallon. It is serious business when diesel fuel, cost more than regular gasoline. This whole situation could be solved in seventy-two hours by, every trucker in the United States, both union and non-union, both private owners, and company drivers. Park your trucks for just three days. Nothing in this country can move without the use of a trucker. No gasoline to Gas stations, no food to food stores, no mail, no milk, no dry goods, absolutely nothing moves in this country without a trucker. Even items shipped across the country on trains, cannot get to the warehouses or retail markets without a trucker.

    Bring this country to it’s knees, and then and only then will you get proper respect, and much lower fuel cost to boot. If you truckers want real respect, stop sitting on your brains, and start thinking of your real value to this country. If we had another Jimmy Hoffa with some real cajoles, the fuel cost would be lower, and truckers would have real respect. That’s why I got out of the trucking game years ago. If you can spend as much as five to ten days away from your families while on the road, and only bring home a small check, something is wrong with that picture. Truckers Unite, and even the US Government will be forced to sit up and take notice. If you continue as you are now, you deserve the small amount of respect you receive.
    Truckers Unite. BRING THIS COUNTRY TO IT’S KNEES, AND YOU WILL FINALLY GET THE RESPECT YOU TRULY DESERVE. TAKE MY WORD FOR IT, PARK THOES TRUCKS FOR SENENTY-TWO HOURS, AND THAT WOULD BRING THIS COUNTRY TO IT’S KNEES WITH RESPECT FOR EVERY TRUCKER FOR A LIFETIME!!!

    Copy and paste this comment everywhere this story is reported. Pass it on!!!

    I don’t see any issues these truckers have caused to slow down any traffiic or etc in DC – looks like they are all talk and no action. my faith in the macho trucker has turned to categorizing them as a bunch of pussies!!

    FAR TOO MANY ARE STRONG ENOUGH AS THEY WERE 30 YRS AGO TO FIGHT FOR OUR cONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. LOOKS LIKE OUR CHILDREN HAVE A TOUGH ROAD COMING THEIR WAY. TOO MUCH GOVERNMENT AND TOO WEAK A NATION UNDER GOD,,,,
