The possible event gained credibility in my mind when I read about it on minutemennews.com, a site that I read regularly. Yesterday it even included information indicating that a Canadian contingent of truckers was also going to participate. Some businesses are even offering some help with fuel and lodging for this show of patriotism. How large this will grow is anybody's guess, but I like the idea of international flavor being added to a display of patriotism fighting against an out-of-control government.
Folks, our Constitution, our Conservative ideals and even our God are under siege by our very own government. Every day that goes by, an out-of-control Administration and Congress tries to take more and more of our freedoms away. Even some under the banner of the Republican Party are right in the middle of it and it must stop. America was never designed to be a weak, third world nation. It was created with the help of God to be a leader and the beacon of hope for all mankind. By your active involvement and/or support for the trucker action you will be making a very strong statement, for if people truly unite on this by putting their pocketbook behind it, even the cowardly main stream media can't avoid it. So if you can't participate as a trucker, participate by staying at home to show your solidarity.
Now some will say this hurts our commerce system, but if you plan for this and make your purchases larger on your regular schedule to cover your needs for those three days, you will actually be spending and using your money just as you normally do, just on a little bit different schedule. And try to support those businesses who support your belief system. After all, who needs Starbucks anyway? The coffee is way overpriced and I personally find it bitter.
Looking at the calendar, October 11-13 is a Friday-Sunday. So why not make it an at home three day weekend? Use it to do your fall gardening, or take a walk and enjoy the foliage. And, ok, you can still attend your beloved football game and church. But other than that, stand in solidarity with the trucker patriots and watch the liberals howl. And remember, no matter how bad you feel about things and what is going on to destroy our land, we still are in the majority and we need to act like it.
Yahoo, we're gonna' have us a convoy. Let's show the world what American Conservative ingenuity can do. Do it in the best traditions of our Founders and stand strong. God bless America.
