This month ALL Americans have an opportunity to participate in a nationwide protest.

None of us can ever say we couldn't do anything to make a difference because there is an option available to EVERYONE. On Friday, October 11th through Su...nday, October 13th, American truckers are planning an event called, Truckers Ride For The Constitution. Thousands of truckers plan on driving their rigs to Washington DC to shut down the city with a ‘super sized’ traffic jam. Others are planning to do the same at their state capitols. Many truckers can’t take off to Washington DC, but they have refused to haul anything during this pivotal 3 days. There will be no gas delivered to stations, groceries delivered to the local grocery store, and myriad of other products won’t be delivered if it depends on an 18 wheeler.

What can you do to help? After all, you don’t drive a truck. There are 10 things most of us can do. You can do what millions of others plan to do from Friday through Sunday night.


1. If you live close to an interstate rest stop: Take your grill out and feed these hungry trucker Patriots!! Let them know they have your support and good wishes. The Modern American Revolution will be out in full-swing this weekend with their grills a'blazing.

Rest Stop Locations: http://restareas.appspot.com/

2. Find your closest Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment group and go hold a sign up to encourage the truckers. If you can’t physically go to an overpass, help someone who can by helping make signs and gather flags for others to hold up.

3. Drive with your lights on in solidarity with the truckers and honk, wave and smile at them as they pass you.

4. Fly your flag at home.

5. Put signs in your yard.

6. Post encouraging memes etc. on Facebook.

7. Wear red, white, and blue.

8. Call and/or email your representatives in Washington and let them know that a few thousand of your closest friends are headed their way to deliver a message from you.

9. You can show your solidarity with the truckers by refusing to spend any money on those days. None, zilch. Don’t participate in any commerce at all. Fill up your car with gas on October 9th. Buy your groceries, pay your bills, get cash out of the bank, and stock up on needed supplies beforehand. Just don’t buy anything at all during this important revolt.

10. As always, take pictures and film everything possible and post to Facebook and YouTube...if the MSM won't cover this peaceful political action, We Will!

If you are unwilling to do any of these things, you are siding with the enemies of our Constitution, whether intentionally or not. This protest can be highly successful if we all participate. The revenue lost in taxes alone will get their attention even if they try to ignore the thousands of trucks tooling around the city.

Donations for grill equipment, food, beverages, etc for the BBQ's can be made here: https://rally.org/modernamericanrevolution

Fuel donations for the truckers may be made on their main site: http://ridefortheconstitution.org/truckers-constitution-rally-information/

PLEASE SHARE THIS POST FAR AND WIDE!
We're counting on YOU to make this event a huge success!

Watching 495 traffic cams on trafficland.com. Nothing looks out of the ordinary. Will be in the vicinity late tonight. Curious to see what is going on. Boss already told me stay off 495. He was told pics will be taken and expect FMCSA audits if your truck is in one. Wouldn’t put it past this regime. A truck is a rolling billboard for the company.

That pix is from Hagerstown, probably not shocking since the interstates are very popular for trucks in the Appalachians.

Report on FOX that looks like a dud. Ironically were truckers scared by the awful rain? Or just a dud, period? I can say they picked a hell of a day and would totally muck up things if they came.

As they said hopefully on FOX, there is still time.

Is it possible to move this and make this into a “Live Thread” so others can follow along as the protest goes?

Yeh, I wonder if they are going to mess with the traffic cams, like they did with the biker rally. I sure hope not. I hope there are so many trucks, it’s not possible to hide them.

Thank you, thank you! I’ve been checking the TV channels and not finding anything. Sadly I found a link on Drudge that says ‘dozens, not thousands of trucks.....’, but I’m hoping it’s too early to judge yet.

I predicted it would beat the Million Muslim March numbers (27).

Sounds like I’ve got a shot at being right.

Don’t get too excited...has the number of thirty trucks been CONFIRMED yet? We need confirmation of 30 trucks (or at least 28) before you start tooting your own horn.

Nice photos but at least two of those photos being spread on twitter and posted repeatedly were taken from other unrelated events in the past.

The second photo is from a Make-a-Wish rally in May 2013 where hundreds of trucks showed up in support of the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

The fifth photo is from a Super Rig Rally held in Joplin, Missouri June 5, 2012.

Latest update from https://www.facebook.com/ridefortheconstitution

Leah Svensson posted on facebook: Okay, so thought it would be nice if ya’ll got some real time updates, there are other sites that are giving more updates like South Carolina Truckers Ride for the Constitution but here is what General Lee said on the RidefortheConstitution.org live feed: (summed up a bit)...................

“It rained all day we felt like we were driving speedboats but it was fantastic!”Their convoy went under overpass after overpass that had groups of people out in the rain for HOURS with banners such as “Banner Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment support the truckers ride for the Constitution!”

He went on to say that here they were all warm and cozy inside their trucks while tons of people were out there standing in the rain. They were talking back and forth on their CBs and were so moved by these patriots that they never felt prouder to be an American!

He also said that today was a run through and many more were coming and he had just gotten off the phone with a guy who has big screen TVs on his trailer and he was about an hour out. He said that they’ll be running all day on Saturday and tons more are coming and Sunday morning they were going to all meet up at exit 98 and roll out no later than 9:00 AM so if you are planning on making this run don’t be late because they are coinciding this run with the Vets going to Washington.

They want to escort the vets. Lee explained that the cops have been their allies and one time a cop gave him some directions when his google maps steered him to a place his rig wouldn’t fit. No accidents all day. Peaceful and just a great ride. The momentum is building and will culminate on the Sunday ride! Callers were calling in from all over the world, even a neat lady from Australia who said she supported the biker run and is supporting the truckers.

She said she was in journalism for years and has never seen such a blackout of news. No one in Australia is covering it and America isn’t either. Why? Because it’s not news? NO WAY!!! Of course it’s news, just not the news they like to report. She said the whole globe heard about Miley Cyrus shaking her p*&^% but when it comes to something that really matters the world is silent.

Well, guys and gals, it’s time we all stood up and said “I will NOT be silent and if you don’t cover us in the news, we’ll get the word out ourselves!!!” Truckers, if you’re riding and need something to listen to and can download songs, play this one from the new Kirk Cameron movie Unstoppable. WE WILL NOT BE SILENT! God Bless ya’ll http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUQAyd5GSV0

And ABC News is recognizing them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=DC_oEezRH30

Yesterday, I searched for news on google for it and all they showed were how low and unimpactful the turnout was.

I was disappointed, but figured the news was just lying and covering up. I have been to more than one conservative rally (one right outside CNN headquarters with over 20,000 people jamming centennial park, that they then ignore and down play.

No, if they had really had much participation believe me the disruption to traffic flow would have been at least on local TV. As it was I heard no special traffic warnings after it started, and all the political talk shows I heard had no special talk about it.

It is nice that local people stood out to support those that did show up, but seems turn-out of truckers - the main point - was pretty low and unnoticeable.

Thanks for the ping, lucky. I’m hoping for a good turnout Sun with the convergence of truckers and vets. I also heard (somewhere) that the bikers were coming back...do you have any info on that? Husband says there’s a “bike week” in Daytona this weekend, so he doubted the story.

Husband also said he saw people on an overpass in...I believe he said Rock Hill, SC...small group specifically supporting truckers.

Keep on truckin’

Check this video out - there is more news reported here than any other main slime network has provided .. and by the way, RT stands for Russia Today.

Thanks for the update!

Our sorry US Federal Democrat Politicians gave us this ghoulish Obama Loyalty Gridlock.

Now the American Truckers have formed a Convoy (remember the 1980’s song “We got ourselves a CONVOY?”) and are a-fixin’ to gridlock the District of Corruption.

The Truckers are doing what our sorry US Federal RINO politicians refuse to do.

They may be current but still most of them as with the other pix are irrelevant. Those that are verifiably relevant still show no proof of it being of real note. Perhaps unfortunately.

I actually live in the area. I know many of the pix are completely irrelevant. And others are not unusual. Sorry, no news here.
