    WHY ARE TRUCKERS THREATENING TO ‘SHUT DOWN WASHINGTON, D.C.’ FOR THREE DAYS STRAIGHT?


    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 16,000 likes, though it is unclear how many truckers actually intend on taking part in the disruptive protest.

    “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!” the group’s description reads.

    In a YouTube video uploaded by user “Kevin Allan” and linked on the “Truckers To Shut Down America” Facebook page, the event is labeled as a general “strike” by the American people against the federal government and its “bulls**t.”

    That would be a great start. What a great idea.

    Yay truckers.

    I spoke to a trucker just the other day and he told me that truckers are having a tough time just surviving. And that they are sick of it

    I did some truckin' myself years back, and I still have trucker friends. They know they hold probably more power over America than any other industry. If anyone can make Washington take notice, they can, because if there isn't any trucks moving, there's no FOOD being brought into cities. No food being brought into cities, won't take long before the shelves are bare and people are killing each other over a frigin' hotdog. You wan't anarchy? Just have the trucks stop and you'll have it. So Washington better listen and listen good.

    Indeed. We would all have to wait for most of our products to do any of our work. Businesses would have to shut down. Washington would have no choice but to pay attention.

    I support the truckers in this move

    Can anyone define “corruption against the Constitution.” in a little more detail?

    Because is sounds like much of the partisan empty rhetoric like "freedom" and "patriotism" and "standing up for America' that we see in so many DC protests.

    If the majority of us do what they ask of us, it will really get their attention.
    I am going to join them and do no shopping, banking or money transactions on those three days.

    Never mind, I found it.

    "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."

    I can assure you, DC, the police maybe even the military, will not allow anyone to shut down DC for 3 days...heheh...what a joke.

    I'm thinking 50-100 trucks, all of which will be towed and impounded.

    Then laughed at...

    People actually support these guys?

    Remove all Muslims from public office? Sounds like leftovers from the 2 million biker rally

    Truckers only object to Muslims who do not uphold the Constitution? To my knowledge, we are not being overrun with Muslims that do not uphold the Constitution

    Seems like our truckers need to read a little more into that First Amendment stuff
