Truckers to DC: Stop Laughing at the People

Tuesday, 08 Oct 2013 07:17 PM

By Bill Hoffmann

A group of big-rig truckers plan to descend on Washington to protest what they say is the federal government's lack of respect for the Constitution.

"We want to make sure D.C. knows that the people ain't going to get ignored, ain't going to get laughed at," Earl Conlon, who is helping to coordinate the Trucker's Ride for the Constitution, told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.



"Our people in government, from the president to the local offices, need to start obeying the Constitution. That's the reason we have all the problems we have, because for the last 100 years they've been just ignoring that Constitution and getting farther and farther away," he said Tuesday.

"This government shutdown thing," Conlon said. "We would not have this conversation if the Congress and the Senate was balancing that budget. I propose that we take their perks away and put them on minimum wage until they got that budget."

Conlon said those lawmakers who ignore the Constitution should face arrest.

"If you're outside the Constitution, that makes you an outlaw," he said.

"Therefore, if your police had the [guts] that they like to believe they have, they would obey the law and go and arrest somebody for violating their oath to office and blatantly walking on the law."
