Sadly This Ain't Italy.
What we're dealing with is Student Government, a Student Government now equally controlled by despots. One side rationalizes its control through secret clubs, racial & cultural intimidation, and dusty, old legacies that are in all places but UF, backward relics of the past. The other side... is advised by one who mocks me through posts on other sites... It's a party that obtained the support of thousands through what's seemingly apparent false pretenses.
Change! That was the driving force behind this historic election. Ben! R&A Seat! Deals! JJ for President! O&B to back JJ for President! -- These type of slogans would not have drawn out enough GDI's to win even the Family Housing seat for O&B.
It's all one giant mafia now and the Independent movement must once again begin from scratch...soon there will be another Bruce Haupt, another Ken Kerns, another Charlie Grapski. Orange & Blue has been the closest party yet, but now like Fall Access '04, it's become a System Party.
And even if after the deal, even if O&B'ers start raising hell? So what? It'll just be a ploy. Gator has fucked O&B hard and left them $20 on the nightstand. Who knows, if O&B raises enough hell, maybe Gator will kick in an extra gratuity.
