How anti-Capitalist of them.
we will be out of money in THREE WEEKS.”

Its expensive to run a revolution
As a proud member of the Tea Party, I remember spending my own money for: meals, a nice clean motel room with shower, transportation, and any fees connected with the protest.
What are we doing wrong?
