Waco, Texas (KWKT) — A group of truckers from across the United States is organzing a rally to head to Washington, D.C., in support of the United States Constitution.
According to the group's website, Ridefortheconstitution.org, they are encouraging all bikers, cars, pickups, tractors and RV's to join in the rally.
The truckers say they are 100 percent fed up with the disregard ofthe supreme law of this land, the Constitution.
The drivers are calling on a "Massive National Peaceful Disobedient March," stating they will come in peace but they are determined.
If you are interested in actively participting in the rally, the group has many ways you can support the movement:
Show up Friday morning, October 11, at the United State Capitol on Constitution Street, before the convoy gets there with signs concerning the Constitution or in support of the ride
Bring American flags and show your patriotism. If some want to bring the Ten Commandments to remind others of God’s laws, feel free to do so.
All Truckers, motorcycles, cars, pickup trucks, tractors and RV’s that want to participate in this ride will meet at the All-American Truck Plaza off I-95, exit 98 across from amusement park. Most will show up October 10. The event will start at 7:00 a.m., October 11. Please dress your ride up with constitutional related signs and/or American flags. Some people want to quote the Ten Commandments and we welcome you to do whatever the spirit moves you to do.
