There is a group called Occupy Wall Street that has branched out nationwide. These people want more government interference, blame Wall Street for everything, and are more or less leaning to a socialist government. They call themselves the 99%, basically believing everyone who's not a millionaire has to feel the same way. Research has indicated that this group was started by a few groups, none of which is quite clear. I've heard people calling in to defend themselves, saying they work for immigrants who aren't happy with the benefits they receive. There are college students who don't want to have to pay their loans. But, like our little grasshopper, winter hasn't hit yet.
By the way, 99% is a fraud. There are 312,631,000 in the United States. Even with 100,000 occupying, look at the real percentage.
Now, there is a group trying to occupy trucking. I'm sorry, but I will be frank. Truckers don't want more government regulations. In a socialist republic, deregulation would also be gone, and the trucking industry as we know it, would cease. Many would lose their jobs or quit because the lifestyle they love would be robbed from them. Truckers don't live off the government. Truckers don't ask for their debts to be written off, for they work hard to accomplish everything.
If you feel you are part of this supposed 99%, you need to quit your job and join the cess pools, for honestly, you won't be missed.
I am asking all truckers to follow the military's lead. Let the world know you are not part of the 99%. It's time to take a stand together against ignorance. This is the home of the free and the brave. Socialism would make it the home of the oppressed and angry.
I stand for my country. I stand for my military. I stand for my freedoms.
