I think they should have a lottery system where for $20 you buy a 1 in 40 chance of winning a phone. They get $800 which is more then they're asking and I think they'd have more people throwing in money. Why would I want to donate $20 so others can have a phone? If I have a chance at winning one then I might be tempted. I could even donate more money to increase my odds.
Gary Johnson is as close to a Tea Party type (limited government) as there will be this election for President. From his website:
Government should not impose its values upon marriage. It should allow marriage equality, including gay marriage. It should also protect the rights of religious organizations to follow their beliefs.
