The Few, The Idealistic, The Independents!
The funny thing about Student Government at the University of Florida is that no matter how bad it gets, that spark that every Independent counts on, rarely ever sets the stage for dynamic change. Absent treasurer, absent applicant, it's only going to get worse, but there's a certain level of comfort taken by the despots in power - there's the comfort that their good ole boy network shalt prevail!
The Independents can hoard all the demonstrative evidence they'd like, they can get testimonials, they can launch creative referendums, they can even come to the rescue of the students time after time, but like lambs to the slaughter, the students will consistently elect those least suited to fight on behalf of their interests.
ReillY, however, will be different. This administration will sink UFSG quite conceivably to the very bottom of the barrel. I predict it will get so bad, that for the first time in a long time, we'll see turncoats, but from the System side to the Independents. I have a feeling people will grow so disgusted with Reilly, that they will rather get voted out, than be associated with his kind for posterity.
