I need some Love from the r3VOLution...Submitted by Jaktober on Wed, 03/07/2012 - 15:11
Okay, I'm going to be honest here; I'm getting burnt out...
I've been on the road for 6+ months promoting the causes of Liberty. A lot of that time has been amazing. It has been hard, but has all been worth it.
With that said, I am now in Philly. I've been Couch Surfing for months, trekking across cities every few days to stay at a new place.
I've been away from home (granted my choice) for half a year.
You can see how much work I put into Boston:
There are groups I meet that give me a boost, there are groups that require a lot of energy from me (and sometimes feel like I'm getting no where).
Also, I just looked at my bank account and it's getting close to zero. I need to keep enough to pay my phone bill this month and my web hosting fees. There is enough in my account for that, $15 in my pocket and a about an ounce of silver in my bag I can sell. I also have $25 transferring to my account that a friend back home "chipped-in."
I have 5 weeks left until my flight back to California. Once I'm back I have Gold and Silver stashed, and a tax return to take care of. I should be fine once I get home, but right now I'm really burnt out and nearing the last of my funds.
I want to keep going strong through Philly, and the 10 days I'll be in D.C. There is nothing I can do about my exhaustion but sleep and attend some meditation groups (did so Monday night).
What I can do to make the next 5 weeks bearable is to raise more money. I could dumpster dive for food, do some medical studies for cash, and lobby the movement for some financial love (or at least, support for my writing).
That's what I am asking you all.
I know this has been rough, Super Tuesday was not so Super, we've all put a lot into this; but I am asking for your help; just $5 to my chip-in, perhaps grab an article from my website and spread it to your friends, buy some silver/gold from my sponsor, something... (actually, what I really need is the direct cash right now).

You can even buy a copy of my book (though I won't get the money for that until I get back): http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/irl-rpg-players-guide/...
Really, I need some fiscal loving right now. I need to sleep (just trekked the city to get to my new couch host). I have a meeting tonight with some progressives that were active in outing Santorum, they may easily be talked into voting for Paul to keep Santorum from winning PA. I'm going to stand in front of the Liberty Bell on Saturday and hand out super brochures and register voters. I have about 10 other meetings lined up for the month. I'll be in D.C. for the day of their Primary. I still have work left to do. Then I'll be back in California where we can still win.
Any help is appreciated. Many of you have already given me money in the past and I appreciate that. We can still Win, if we keep doing what we do best; support the community.
Even a +1 or comment of support [bump] is helpful.
