They're Going Galt! A Day Without Conservatives

It's hard to keep up with all the conservative nonsense but there's a movement afoot among the Tea Party set to declare a Going Galt day. On July 30th, conservatives are 'going Galt,' named after Ayn Rand's famous character John Galt from her novel Atlas Shrugged. On that day conservatives plan to 'call in conservative.' Here's their call to inaction:
On July 30th, Conservatives are "Going Galt".
On that date, we are asking Conservatives all across the nation to "Call in Conservative". On July 30th, Conservatives will not work, we will not buy. Instead, we will spend time with our families and friends. We will show President Obama and Congress who REALLY drives this economy. For more information on "A Day Without Conservatives, contact Judson Phillips.
Mr. Phillips lives in South Carolina. Writing in the Columbia Conservative Examiner, Anthony Martin supports the call to 'going Galt' stating that:
Conservatives will show the nation what it would be like if we simply did not work or spend our money. This means that on that day we will not buy groceries, gasoline, snacks, patronize restaurants, or head out to Walmart or Target or any other retailer.
If this means businesses lose billions of dollars on that day, fine. If this means that travel will be disrupted, good. If this means communication systems are crippled, so be it.
Can you imagine the number of conservatives that work in various sectors of the economy who simply will not work on July 30? Can you imagine that not a single conservative will spend their money at restaurants, gasoline stations, or retailers on that day? The potential for this protest is enormous.
But government has pushed the citizens to this point. For now, this is a peaceful but firm protest to show Washington and 'progressives' that they can no longer expect us to simply roll over and play dead as they ram a socialist agenda down our throats. There are more of us than there are of them. We can shut this country down if we so choose.
Or they might prove their own irrelevance.
