…ten brosefs chest bumped me…
Recently, both groups highlighted the fact that funding from the ASUN is ridiculous.The CaKDudes agreed with Patrick Delaplain, Director of Clubs Stuff,when he referred to “our current club funding policies a ‘club un-support’ system,” then went on to show that particular groups got particularly dumb funding and that this should be stopped. Among the most notable mentions was our club:
“UNR Students for Liberty – $5,516 across a variety of
tiers for catering, plane tickets, a speaker etc. It doesn’t
seem like UNR Students for Liberty practice the ‘sound
money’ that they preach.”
The VisLupiKids, never far behind, jumped on board and said Yeah! You go CaKBros! You get those UNR Students for Liberty! They even went so far as to jab right at us, “you can’t assert you do not acknowledge the legitimacy of government while at the same time suckling from the government’s tit.”
Not only can we do that, but we needed to do that. We needed to do it to get people like you and the CaKBrosefs to even notice that the funding policies have been flawed for years. We needed to do it to get people like the director of Clubs’n'Such, the senate, the commissioners, the ASUN to recognize the inherent inadequacies of their policies. We’ve tried the diplomatic, “legitimate” approach. It didn’t work. We even tried talking to our senators:
There’s no point. We’ve tried, God knows we’ve tried to reform the student government. But there’s no point. It’s a flawed system, in and of itself. The policies, the positions, the participants: broken and unfixable, all of it.
So what have we done this time? We’ve said outright that we are exploiting ASUN. We are biting the hand that feeds us so that hopefully that hand’s owner will know better than to feed all the things that come up to it. We’re the monsters your system has created: a club that relies solely on the ASUN for funding, with no intentions of stopping, and no intentions of seeking outside funding. We aren’t hiding behind the ploy of “bettering the campus.” We’re not even trying to better ourselves.
We’re just a $5,000+ mirror for an unworkable system.
But…but we have a heart over here at the Students for Liberty. And in the spirit of the season, we’ll be giving back. We’re not so selfish. It’s not always about us. That’s why we’ll be posting 10 gifts from here until Christmas. Please do enjoy.
