What Happens to the Government if the People Quit?
If the American people decided to stay home from work for just one day as an entire people united against what the Government is doing to prove their point what would happen? Some say it will create a void in the Government income much like the void the Government is creating for the people of America; only with harsher repercussions.
The Government can’t get what it doesn’t have. Billions of dollars that would normally go to the government would suddenly be cut off. There would be no money to pay the Government. The Government receives around 240 Billion Dollars per month, so what would happen when that income stops just as the Government stopped Food Stamps, Military Benefits, stopped their Federal workers from working, closed down all Federal Facilities, threaten to stop Disability, Stopped help for farmers, and so much more. That equals out to around 8 Billion Dollars per day income for the Government.
The American people are sick and tired of paying a Government that continually opposes the will of its people. The American people are sick and tired of the American Government threatening their very livelihood. Every time the Government wants their way those in office threatens the American people as though the people have no options or recourse. Here are just a very few of the reasons why and what some intend to do about it.

“’Truckers To Shut Down America’ Protest To Shut Down Beltway In Washington, D.C.” By Ben Bullard, Personal Liberty Digest; http://personalliberty.com/2013/10/08/truckers-to-shut-down-america-protest-to-shut-down-beltway-in-washington-d-c/
The real question is if the American people actually do what many say they will do and take October 11, 2013 off how will this affect the American Government and what will it do to the American people? If the American people took the three days off what would happen?
The Truckers had originally asked for the Americans to support their cause to shut down the commerce of the Americans for three days beginning October 11, 2013. This means nobody goes to work unless you work for the ER room’s of hospitals or senior homes, the electric companies, police forces and the Fire Departments , no stores opens their doors, No fuel will be bought for vehicles because everybody will stay home, Nothing will be bought at any stores across the United States of America. The sentiment is if the Government runs on Taxes and the Taxes suddenly stop; how can the Government function? Let the Government have a taste of what they are making the people that elected them suffer due to their ineptness and continual holding of the American people as their Hostages. Yet what will be the consequences of these actions if taken?
