This is a good idea and worth a try. Count me in. Let me know when we start.
No to Obamacare.
No to gun ban.
No to BH Obama.
No to EPA rules.
Go for the jugular. Go for DC. DC is already a traffic nightmare and you wouldn't have to go into DC itself. 10,000 cars traveling at a slow pace around the beltways of DC would bring the place to a halt. No disrespect to all of the non-vets but I'm thinking this should be vets, people who can take and follow orders without a lot of questions. Everyone involved would have to be very disciplined. It would require a lot of coordination but I think it could be done. Anyone have a spare general and a couple of colonels sitting around who could plan and organize this.
Marv, I can tell you have not spent much time in DC LOL
You could not get 10,000 cars if your life depended on it, you would be stuck in your own traffic jam, drive slow, its the only way to go...
left out of a meeting at the Pentagon, it was Fri and I wanted out early so I said we will work thru lunch and cut out early. I left out at 1 30 in the afternoon, had to drive down to Hampton Va on I 95, I got home at 12 30 that NIGHT!, sat on beltway and I 93 for almost 8 hours...
Been stuck on beltway too many times to count...
I spent two years at Arlington Hall Station. I know what DC traffic is like. If you spread your 10,000 vehicles out in groups of 1,000 you could bring almost all vehicle traffic to a stand still or least slow it down to your pace. Best time would be very, very early in the morning.
Advertising where and when is not advised. And if a few city slickers get inconvenienced... tough. There's a good chance that the majority of those living in the city are liberal Obama supporters, so screw em. If an event like this is to be successful it has to be kept quiet as much as possible. The last thing we want is the Cops to divert traffic on purpose to force our convoy away from the objective.
Planning will be critical. Something almost as complicated and secret as the D-Day invasion. Ok, I'm going a little overboard but I'm trying to make a point about planning. Here's one small idea... On the day of the event there will be 5-6 different staging areas that surround the City of choice. Drivers coming to the event from different directions will be assigned their own meeting place/staging area. The Convoy leaders will be at each staging area waiting for a signal for all to start moving. At that point, the most important thing that all drivers need to know is... Follow your Convoy Leader and do as they do. Period.
Of course we need contingency plans, but you get the idea.
One of the things you would not want to do is show up in a large convoy. You would want to spread your folks out so that you would have a few getting on at each entrance. One of the most important things would be communication so you can figure out who's who as you go. As far as inconveniencing folks working in DC tough s** t for them.
Exactly X 2.
