I'm sure you all agree, I think the end all goal here should be to seek INDEPENDENCE from the system, as equal representation or even "proportionate" representation is near impossible.

What's been phenomenal to watch is every opportunity that the opposition gets to give us a token olive branch, they do something incredibly stupid.

That's The Machine Way. This is an old (1992) but still highly relevant description; these are the people fighting us now:

Here's the big tl;dr takeaway:

The Machine took root at Alabama a hundred years ago with something of the same idea about politics: Disputes should take place behind closed doors.

The boys who started the fraternity nationally thought it unseemly that fraternity men would fight openly for campus leadership positions. And yet fraternities regularly got into terrible squabbles, often of a snobbish variety, as an early TNE yearbook complained. TNE was to be a suprafraternity. The men of TNE would quietly seek out future leaders when they were sophomores and then sort out campus honors among them. The fraternity urged its chapters to start student governments as a proving ground.

A lot of it I suspect is our money being used against us.

You know it's not money from their pockets. That's all the more infuriating. Wasting countless millions of taxpayer dollars. This is why I think they will lose. UAB folks are mad for obvious reasons, but I think the taxpayers in this state are fed up with wasted funds and corruption.

You can only shine up a turd so much, and that's what Direct Communications, Watts, and the BOT are trying to do. If they were on the side of right, we'd have a much more difficult battle. But I hope that truth and justice will triumph at the end of the day.
