The United Student Alliance was an alliance of two candidates running for ASUCD Senate in the Fall 2005 ASUCD Election: This Flag has 51 Stars. Bet you didn't notice. We welcome Iraq to the U.S.A.!

Neither candidate was elected. They will continue to fight for their goals, on behalf of all the people that voted for them.

Some people question whether two people can truly make a slate. But if you can have an Army of One, you can have an Alliance of Two1. The United Student Alliance, or USA, stands for truth, justice, and the American Way.

If you're interested in seeing what else it stands for, see the Alliance Platform. They have also provided some musical suggestions to listen to while reading it.

In short, they stand for:

  • Fiscal Responsibility - Not spending $33,000 on plasma screens for AGTV (<- click to see why), and auditing units to see if they run more efficiently. Also, we plan to cut the $1000 ASUCD Retreat so Senators getting crunk at Tahoe doesn't happen on your dime.
  • ASUCD Open Government - Getting the budget online so you can better participate.
  • Improving Lobbying Efforts - We plan to work with UCSA to try to get them to waste less money, and channel more into action that benefits all students, such as cheaper textbooks and protecting financial aid.
  • Cheap Textbooks - Continuing the work of Senator Birdsall to get textbook ISBN numbers on MyUCDavis.
  • Promoting the Arts - There are many free and cheap events on campus, which we hope to help promote to a wider section of students.

Though the Alliance is a new slate, it considers itself the ideological descendent of Friends Urging Campus Kindness. The Friends have yet to endorse the Alliance, but we hope that our platform will win over Urger supporters everywhere.

We may be The Alliance, but we have no intention of persecuting browncoats. Really. The slate is just like apple pie — pretty sweet. Make sure to vote on November 16 or 17 at

2005-12-13 23:22:09   Wait, I thought Friends Urging Campus Kindness was still a viable slate. How does a slate that is not defunct have a spirtual descedant? —TimCoady


1. Two is also the approximate size of the Coalition in Iraq
