How do you vote? And I mean how do you really vote?
On which bases do you judge if the candidate is worthy of your vote or not?
Do you base your decision on knowledge, experience?
Or do you just follow the judgment of the leaders you trust?
Did you know that our university is a small model of the presidential governing system?
When a lot of us say that the AUC is a small model of Egypt, we say it in a mere rhetoric manner not knowing that actually in reality that statement is 100% true.
The student government that governs AUC is a small model of the Egyptian government that governs Egypt.
Just like the Egyptian government suffered over the last thirty years, the student government did too.
Both of them have the same problems, the same dilemmas, and need pretty much the same solutions.
You see the Egyptian constitution is not the only one that needs to be rewritten or reformed; AUC’s constitution sadly does too.
The aucian community has always been in some sort of bubble, which prevented it over the years from really becoming part of the Egyptian society.
When we moved to the New Campus the bubble expanded.
Now we have in our community the same problems that the rest of the communities and organizations in the Egyptian society have which is normal since (whether we like it or not) we are part of this society yet, our bubble prevents us from undergoing the same process of reform.
It’s like everyone is moving forward and we backwards.
That’s why the SU Presidential Elections 2011 are critical because they are the turning point. (We particularly”I” got SCREWED OVER and the WORLD didn’t END so boohoo MOI)
We move either our much needed move forward or we go back more than we are already going. (Yup no MORE Back then this but then I am the one who wrote this SHIT a couple of months back =D)
The only thing that distinguished the aucian student union from every other student union in the country is that its president is chosen by the general assembly through elections (Popularity Contest where SMART MOUTHED ASSES like me try to convince MUCH SMARTER PASSIVE PEOPLE to VOTE in an ELECTION that WON’T MATTER a SCRAP in the SHIT we’re DROWNING IN anyhow).
Not assigned like every other student union president in the country. Now after the revolution that’s gone because now all the student union presidents for every university in Egypt will be chosen based on elections just like us. So bye bye unique and hello normal! That’s not the only thing that’s changing a lot of major changes are happening in all the universities in Egypt public and private just not to us. ( What the hell was I thinking, what makes us unique in the first place, ROLE MODEL my ASS and ESU my ASS).
Everyone is moving forward and we don’t even have the privilege of staying where we are, we are moving backwards. ( Now that’s RIGHT ON FINALLY)
We need to start acting, we need to start showing people that a revolution did happen and things did change, and they will even more. We need to start with ourselves; the way think, our reactions, and finally how we vote. ( =) )
This year is different and we need to show people that this year is different. (Well Its over and I guess in so many FUCKED UP ways it was DIFFERENT)
Let NEXT YEAR Be Better Please, you DREADED SPRING =S
