Actress Patricia Arquette asked for her followers to not spend “any money on anything anywhere” on March 2nd in order to try to force an “Economic Shutdown.”
Arquette wrote on Instagram:
A REMINDER: Please contact everyone you know. On Monday, March 2nd, there is an Economic Shutdown. #Shutitdown. It’s easy,” she wrote in her post.
“DO NOT SPEND ANY MONEY ON ANYTHING ANYWHERE. our goal is to cause a $238.2 billion dollar blip on the federal government’s records.”
Arquette’s comments appear to be inspired by the following message circulating on Twitter.
AMERICANS: If you want to remove Trump, there is one way to do it. On March 2, 2020 we’ll do the economic shutdown from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. Don’t buy anything, anywhere, spend no money. If you have autopays, leave them alone. If you have a mortgage due pay it the day before,” that Twitter account said.
2) The nation’s daily GDP is $238.2 billion. We won’t hit that but we can wake up the politicians & the government will know. Several small businesses have told me they’ll open, but they personally won’t spend any money. Tweet, FB, call, E-mail your House Reps & Senators & tell…
3) them you’re participating. Then we’ll do another one in April, May, June, July, August, September & October. There is only one thing Trump & the GOP understand; that is money. This will not cause us to go into a recession, but it will slow the economy down. The US is the most
… powerful country in the world. We can do this. It will show the GOP that Americans are coming together & we’re demanding changes starting with the removal of Trump. Remember: Economic Shutdown, don’t buy anything on March 2nd. Emergencies excepted.”
Per TCO, last month after winning an awards for a supporting role in “The Act,” Arquette could not resist speaking out against President Trump.
We’re not going to look back on this night in the history books, we will see a country on the brink of war, the United States of America, the president tweeting out a threat of 52 bombs, including cultural sites.
Young people risking their lives traveling across the world. People not knowing if bombs are gonna drop on their kids’ heads. And the continent of Australia on fire.
So while I love my kids so much, I beg of us all to give them a better world. For our kids and their kids, we have to vote in 2020 and we have to vote, and plead, for everyone we know to vote in 2020.
