1 Million Truckers Protest Now Joined By Canadian Counterparts

Freedom Outpost

In the recent article 1  Million Truckers to Protest Obama by Shutting America Down for 3 Days in  October, I reported the Facebook page, Truckers  to Shut Down America, was urging truckers to drive to DC October 11-13,  2013  and Americans to boycott in support of the truck drivers by ceasing all  money  transactions for those days.  At the time of that article, the site had  little  over 10,000 likes.  I wanted to provide an update.

Three days after I wrote about the march, the site has garnered over 67,000  likes and new developments have arisen that could only have happened due to the  overwhelming support for our hard working truck driving friends.

Many Americans are supporting the 18 wheel drivers rolling to DC by pledging  to boycott those three days by staying home and avoiding all money transactions  for those days.  But, individuals are not the only ones who have come out in  support of this endeavor.  A few members with Indiana Overpass for Obama’s  Impeachment are offering to pay for hotel rooms and a meal or two for the  truckers.

A truck stop in Baton Rouge, LA is offering 50 gallons of free fuel  to the first 20 truckers that come by their establishment with pictures showing  their rig in DC during those three days.

There has even been a post from a man in Germany, written in German,  supporting the million trucker march to DC.

Truck drivers are posting pictures of themselves with their trucks and  indicating whether they will shut down and stay home or shut down for the drive  to DC.


A reprint of the Freedom Outpost article appeared on the Daily Paul.  The  Blaze posted an article the day after Freedom Outpost and Fox News picked up  that article and scrolled the information in their news ticker.

A new Facebook page popped up, Canadian  Truckers to Shut Down, suggesting that Canadian counterparts show their  support for their American trucking brothers and sisters by shutting down as  well on the same days and either stay home or drive to Toronto.  That site has  over 1,700 likes.

Two radio shows are urging truck drivers to call in to discuss the important  issues.  The Guerilla Media Network is asking truck drivers only to identify  the  most important issues beside fuel prices that drivers would like to see  changed  by calling Pete Santilli.  The site provides the number for the live  radio show.  For those reading that are truckers, the number is  (828)  738-6588 .  The Pete  Santilli show is broadcast daily at 10 AM PST/ 12 PM CST/ 1 PM EST.

The other radio show is hosted by Glenn Beck.  The posting had appeared about  phoning Glenn Beck earlier today, but now it has become difficult to find.  The  site is receiving thousands of posts daily.  Admins of the site are trying to  respond to all posts and verify all information.

Goods travel throughout the US 7 days a week, 24 hours per day, 365 days per  year.  While goods are moved by rail, air and ship, it takes a truck to get  those goods from seaports, train depots and air cargo ports to distribution  centers then their final destination at a store near you.  If you go to the  store to buy something, more than likely a truck driver and his rig delivered  it.  The job they do provides the stored with the goods we purchase.

These men and women are willing to stake three days of their livelihood to  protest the corruption in Washington.  Enough notice has been given for  individuals to stock up on items for those three days and extra due to the time  it will take for goods to reach their destination after the boycott.   Medication  is usually dispensed for 30 day intervals so make sure you get your  refills  prior to October 11.  To support the truck drivers and join in,  individuals can  cease all money transactions for those three days.

I say We the People can make a difference!  Keep passing the word America.   Our family trucking company is rolling to DC.  Hopefully, we see some of you on  the side of the road cheering us on!
