This is a freelance debate, meaning you can post as you wish to argue. It is redundant to setup guidelines for a debate when that does no truly convey the point of the debate spirit.

The truck driving industry is the backbone of our nation. Everything you purchase, use, or sell, has been or will be shipped on a truck. Without truck driving, our economy would plummet, are surplus of goods would diminish to nothing within a matter of days, and we would be living in a post apocalyptic waste land. As fantasist as this may appear, that is indeed how essential truck driving is. Many would argue that some products are shipped by boat, plane, and train. This is a fair argument except as to say those are limited as to wear they deliver. Once the cargo has reached the port, the airport, or the train station, it still has to be transferred to the area in which the product can be trade. And this of course is were truck driving falls into play.

No truck drivers were not around in the 1800s when our founding fathers were still living. all Truck drivers do is take up road space we have air ports for a good reason however I understand that truck drivers transport things cheaper but think about this the time period is extended. Also if the truck driver delivers it a day late then the company needs to pay extra where as flight sceduals are easy to fit in. Also truck drivers get paid for sitting in a car all day and transporting things from point A to pointB.

Truck drivers may be useful for transportation but that is really all they are good for. If they helped with politics then I would change my mind but most of the people who are polotians were not truck drivers they were fed with a gold spoon in there moth what i mean by that is that polpticians were raised with that kind of behavior and raised in a great family.
