I've been "talking" to congressmen ( and women) since I was in my 20's. Got active in some races a few times from the local level to the national.
But you can talk for a hundred years and it won't do nothin' like a day of action.
My last conversation with the governor of NC consisted mainly of words that'll get me banned from here for repeating, lol.
But I told it like it was.
When you're a liar and a cheat, I won't have anymore to do with you and my conversations will be short, and not so sweet.
Some of us have been stolen from, lied to and hurt too many times to "talk" about it anymore.
If you insist on getting in the way, then so be it.

But back to the OP, I have no delusions about a truckers protest. My wife was an OTR driver, so was my grandpa. I'm a moderator on a trucker's site and you can't get two truckers to agree on breakfast, much less anything else. That's a fact.
But it won't take everyone, as I said, just a few well placed strategic strikes, at the right time and the right places.
And one day, you'll be thinking about how to stop a convoy of NOT-so-well-meaning individuals......probably in uniform.....and at that time you might change your opinion of those of us who wish to "inconvenience".

It's about picking your battles, not being gutless.

Let's say all the independent truckers spend $8,000 out of their personal funds to do this. They shut down DC for 2 whole days and cost the government $5 million due to cop wages and whatnot.

Who wins?

Not the truckers. They don't have a printing press giving them an endless supply of money. Oh, and some of them may have now had their licenses pulled in what is already a WAY over-regulated industry.

So we've got less money to spend amongst the patriot community, oh, and a few more men are forced into working for the corporations or taking food stamps.

We will have lost.

You mentioned earlier (but I can't find it now) about the Boston Tea Party.

Know why those guys dressed up as Indians and didn't leave a note saying "John Patterson the Weaver on Fourth Street did this"?

It's not quite time. Trying to force a conflict before we're ready isn't going to help. We've got too many generals all yelling "charge" and not enough horseman on the line yet.

Wait a bit. It'll change. It's changing every day. People I would have never expected in a million years to be on our side are dropping little hints, in the supermarkets and such. They're coming around.

It's been a hundred years. I've watched for 66. When would be the right tome to pick a battle. Ever hear the Sinatra song "high hopes" Were Gutless Pick a battle my hind end . Every time you get a chance you wound the enemy if nothing else. We been picking battles for thirty years and havent won a war yet
The best guerrilla wars are hit and run

Agreed. Do you think a couple of thousand trucks driving up to Washington DC is a hit and run action?

At your age, I don't know that you'll see change. Personally, I think it's about 10-15 years off yet. I think the American Experiment has to completely run its course and die a horrible death before enough people are going to wake up to make it feasible for us to take off our masks and confront the beast.

Occupy Wall Street was a good start, and I was completely wrong about them at the time. I believed what the media said about them, that they were all communists. (Some were, but it's a mixed bag.)

I think the answer lies with the youth. The ones who won't look up from their little iPhones right now. Turn on the radio and listen to their music. It's haunting and hopeless. It's derelict. The more socially-conscious of their bands know they are walking in the ghost of a civilization and that there's nothing left for them.

They are a pile of oily rags waiting for a spark.

So let's start making some sparks.

THe thing is yo never know. the truck thing could be a spark. Especially its the same time that the debt ceiling and Obama care is coming on line. People are getting letters their health care is going to double. Unions are waking up, NOw Boehner says they will defund it. Gnats arent very big and it only takes a couple to drive you nuts
I probably wont see it. But I got nine kids and 30+ grand and great grandkids to think about. BOy was here he is coming along and understanding. Daughter called she hated me. now she is seeing the light. But if you got people running around saying this and that is useless how they going to get enthused. Those people saying that are just drones.

Occupy could have been good but they were rich kids and were infiltrated with lefties. Way to idealistic. Its a real world out there. They were like the hippies of the 60's

Hell I lost everything fighting for a piece of land. A country is way more important

It could be a spark. I'll concede that. Something is going to eventually be a spark.

It'll be the government cracking down overly hard on something or someone with the video cameras rolling. Some heavy-handed response to something.

Are you joking or are you really seriously thinking of doing that? If you are serious then legally you need to ask the HT owners if they want this forum to be associated with the trucker's strike and ask for their permission for you to represent Homesteading Today and to paint the HT name/logo on your truck. You will need to do that because the Homesteading Today forum is a licensed business and their business name and logo are copyrighted.

Wolfie had it pegged. How can a group speak with one voice? That will be the crux of the matter. Who can bring "us" together to speak with one voice? Without that - the government does not need to heed that voice. Until that happens, the people have no power.

TnH, Thank you for your dedication and effort on behalf of the people who desperately need to see real news. Very sorry for the loss of your Son.

I read the first link in this thread and all the comments. Can't remember the posters name, but it was CLEARLY indicated that the drivers want obamacare defunded and gov to get out of everyone's corporate and private life. One could only HOPE that the general population would arrange to support this effort by NO shopping, banking or purchasing of gas for 3 days, such a small thing to do to make a difference ! Drivers definitely need a spokesperson.

Yeah, because when you're already at the point of breaking laws, like shutting down interstates and being confronted by armed, angry LEO's, the one line you DON'T want to cross is copyright infringement.........

When the time comes, "serious" is going to be on a WHOLE nuther level, lol.

Yes.
That's why when I see questions like, "What's this about? What's the goal? How's this going to accomplish anything?", I realize the people asking these questions are co-conspirators of the PTB, whether intentionally or through ignorance.

Just an added piece of info for those that DO stay informed.
The dates on this in October are curiously close to the timeframe that rumors are being talked about with our military, canceled leaves, maneuvers, etc.
It is also around the time that the bill to defund Obamacare will come to a vote AND the bill needed to raise the debt ceiling.
ALL of these are coming up in about 3 weeks.

I know I have a friend- a close long time one whose husband is a trucker- they never ever break even- he could never drive to one of these things- the fuel alone would prevent the ride-
I commend any of the independent ones who are able to do this- trucking is not an easy business to be in- you do not run truck independently and make any money ....

Historically, only 10 percent have made a showing at these type of events, and they were able to make their point.

Maybe that is why the ones that cannot get to Washington DC are agreeing to park their trucks. No moving freight.

Also it appears they are striking to define Obama care and wish to have Obama impeached. Removed from office. They want Eric Holder gone for Fast and Furious, Benghazi investigation to move forward, etc. Seems like it is in line with most things discussed here.

As far as copyright infringement, I can state I am a member of HT all day long. I can paint a replica of the sticker I have on my truck. The infringement does NOT occur as I am not attempting to make money using their logo. I am not starting a new forum site using their logo.
What I AM doing is advertising for them.

Otherwise why send out the stickers to members for display?

Using "l" above as an example. I myself would never paint anything on my farm truck. I love my truck just like he is.

I guess many don't know about the HT stickers that were offered to us. My truck?, after a downed cow tore off the running board, 200k+ miles of hauling water tanks, hay, logs, ect a little craft paint might be an improvement.

I wont even put a pollitical bumper sticker on my truck....
I really don't want some liberal loonie-tune "keying" the paint....
Or the accidental fender bending from a "monster bumper truck" in a parking lot.

I can see some good ol boy truckers getting BIG hurt by the over-reach of the huge number of Jack-boots around the district of criminals ............

The headlines read "Ornery truck driver tazzered to death"
