The truckers who are either already in D.C. or en route are putting a lot on the line to be there. They are jeopardizing their jobs and missing out on income. We did some math at The D.C. Clothesline Friday Night and determined that many of these truckers are spending $1500 or more out of their own pockets just to stand for you and I.
By the way I just noticed the typos and I was obviously talking about mpg and not mph. I don’t tend to proofread my Facebook posts. I just rant.
My math may not be perfect but it really blew me away when I did those calculations.
That my friends is a commitment.
These truckers and the vets seem to be standing for all of the things that our favorite elected servants talk about, so where are they?
Issues like Obamacare, smaller government and the NDAA are popular with most of the politicians that we put on pedestals, but they don’t seem to care when we attempt to make a stand.
Have you, or maybe someone you have known, ever experienced the disappointment of a parent who doesn’t get involved in your life? That is what this reminds me of. To me, a guy who risks his job and takes $1500, that he can’t afford, out of savings to stand for America is much more of a hero than a guy who talks for 21 hours straight. Anyone who has ever been the parent of a newborn will understand that 21 hours is an average day and you know what it’s like to do it 7 days a week.
So why can’t they acknowledge these heroes? Why can’t they return the support they have been given?
