As the weekend-long protest known as “Truckers for the Constitution” gets under way, one organizer has released the movement’s list of demands.
The strike is designed to curtail economic activity by halting the delivery of goods via independent truckers. All citizens are encouraged to support the effort by not engaging in any financial transactions until Monday.
Friday’s circulation of a demand list represents a new layer of activism by the strike’s organizers. A central theme is Barack Obama’s perceived presidential ineligibility.
According to the document, which is reportedly being delivered to at least one House Republican, there were a number of efforts prior to 2008 “attempting to change Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution … to make it possible for Barack Obama to meet the eligibility requirements for the office of president.”
Furthermore, the release states that “a legal investigation has proven that his documents provided are forgeries, which is a felony offense.”
In a broader sense, the protesters decry the current administration’s “tyrannical, abusive form of government.”
The ultimate motive for the protest, it explains, is “to breathe life back into our Constitution” and “declare our independence.”
Finally, strikers chastise the federal government for a litany of overreaches — including ObamaCare — and says the Obama regime is guilty of violating a number of federal laws.
Addressing the Department of Homeland Security, the letter alleges that the “non-military security force” is “violating the Constitution by using tax money to build a standing army, on American soil, training to engage with the American People.”
The list’s author also suggests that the administration is in violation of the War Powers Act, in part by “exposing, and administering experimental, psychotropic, mind-altering drugs for control over soldiers during secret, clandestine operations.”
Though participants were caught in traffic on their way to Washington, D.C. and were not able to arrive in time to meet with representatives as the World War II memorial as planned, the strike continues as more and more truckers converge on the nation’s capital.
While the arrival of countless big rigs will obviously make a statement in and of itself, the true potential impact of this strike will come from everyday citizens taking a stand. By refusing to take part in the nation’s economic system for one weekend, everyone upset with this nation’s current trajectory can work together to make a difference.
When our words are ignored or mocked by the leftists in charge, we can let money — or the lack thereof — do our talking for us.
