“Truckers to Shut Down America” Plans 3-Day National Trucking Strike for October

• DC Clothesline
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 that 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.

The goal is pretty simple. On the weekend of October 11-13 the organizers are calling for a general trucker strike. The goal would be to send a message to our government through a delivery strike that could potentially be temporarily catastrophic to national commerce.

What would happen if all truck drivers, or at least a large percentage, followed through with this strike? Could it cause temporary food and fuel shortages? For certain it would. It would temporarily cripple most merchants and it is difficult to say how long they might take to recover. Regardless of that potential scenario, there is no doubt that something must be done and the people must be heard.

The “About” section of the “Truckers to Shut Down America” page states:

What remains to be seen is what kind of support this strike will garner. Rest assured that the 18,000+ people who have liked this page are not all truck drivers.
