Skip to comments.'Truckers for the Constitution' Plan to Slow D.C. Beltway, Arrest Congressmen

Tractor-trailer drivers will intentionally clog the inner loop of the Washington, D.C., beltway beginning on the morning of Oct. 11, according to a coordinator of the upcoming "Truckers Ride for the Constitution" rally.
Organizers of the three-day ride want to call attention to a litany of trucker frustrations and express their disapproval of national political leaders.
Earl Conlon, a Georgia trucker who is handling logistics for the protest, told U.S. News tractor-trailer drivers will circle the beltway "three lanes deep" as he rides with other participants to Congress to seek the arrest of congressmen for allegedly disregarding the Constitution.
The truckers circling I-495 will keep the left lane open for emergency vehicles, Conlon said, but "everybody that doesn't have a supporter sticker on their window, good luck: Nobody in, nobody out." The trucks will be going the 55 mile-per-hour speed limit.
D.C. commuters who wish to be allowed past the convoy must have "T2SDA" an acronym for the event's original name, "Truckers to Shut Down America" written on their vehicle, he said.

Or just the provocation Barry needs to cry “Insurrection” and call out the brownshirts?
I’m betting it will be larger than the Million Muslim March on 9/11/13.
They had 27 people.
And what would 0bama’s faggot brown-shirts do? Shoot the truckers in the streets?
We’ve got ourselves a CONVOY!
If one desires a good comparison between those who produce quality and those produce excrement - one only has to compare truckers to congresscritters and the Dork-O-Dent.
Clue for Obamavoters....your president is on the excrement side.
We'll just have to see about that, won't we.
I wish them well. It does kinda lend new (original) meaning to “riding shotgun”. Do they need folks to ride shotgun, in all its historical splendor?
Let him start it. Then all the animals will be out of the barn, not just the horse.
And then that in turn would be the provocation WE need to declare civil war and call out the hordes of armed to the teeth patriots....
I wanna see those arrests!
So the GRU bulletin and the 1.6 Bn bullets are meant for the obvious?
Normally I would say that this just irritates people and turns them against your cause but virtually every leach in DC is already against the cause of small government, liberty, freedom, etc. so why not go for it.
Yeah. What’s even MORE interesting is all those rigs driving around teh Washington Beltway - well, GEEZ, a LOT of them could, like BREAK DOWN from the stress of the driving. THAT would be a shame, wouldn’t it???
All for it. Hope the new media keeps me informed, the old will sweep such a protest under the rug
IF enough people stand up and do SOMETHING, that’s got to help, don’t you think?
I’m convinced that we no longer have fair elections, so how do we remove the entrenched government bureaucracy without some form of civil disobedience?
“The mass of men serve the state thus, not as men mainly, but as machines, with their bodies. They are the standing army, and the militia, jailers, constables, posse comitatus, etc. In most cases there is no free exercise whatever of the judgment or of the moral sense; but they put themselves on a level with wood and earth and stones; and wooden men can perhaps be manufactured that will serve the purpose as well. Such command no more respect than men of straw or a lump of dirt. They have the same sort of worth only as horses and dogs. Yet such as these even are commonly esteemed good citizens. Others, as most legislators, politicians, lawyers, ministers, and office-holders, serve the state chiefly with their heads; and, as they rarely make any moral distinctions, they are as likely to serve the devil, without intending it, as God. A very few, as heroes, patriots, martyrs, reformers in the great sense, and men, serve the state with their consciences also, and so necessarily resist it for the most part; and they are commonly treated as enemies by it.”- Henry David Thoreau, Resistance to Civil Government
Ain't she a beautiful sight?
At least slow the beltway sounds preferable to their earlier plan which was to create a ‘traffic jam.’ A real strike would take months of monumental planning but a nationwide slowdown may be feasible.
