The Work Of Separatists!
This is preposterous! An outrage!
As every citizen knows, I seek only to serve the Republic!
It should be clear to all that wecomeinpeace
is in league with the very Separatists who would destroy our cherished institutions!
My dear fellow citizens, it is now clear to all that the stranglehold the Separatists have on our sacred Republic is more grave than any of us had
wanted to imagine, but the unpleasant truth is revealed here for us all to see.
Indeed, what confronts us is not the work of mere Separatists, but Rebels who desire nothing less than to bring war and chaos to the galaxy!
Thus it is with great... reluctance... that I call upon the Council to grant me emergency powers until this crisis is averted.
With these powers, I will raise a Grand Army of the Republic to combat the Rebel peril.
The power you give me I will lay down when this crisis has abated.
Soon, Peace and Order shall be restored throughout the Galaxy.®
WCIP, that is totally awesome! Finally, someone who appreciates my subtle and wicked sense of humor.
Yes, I'm being facetious, but there's a double edge to my satire.
We Councilors must always
remember who elected us, and why.
The smarmy “Emperor Majic” avatar is there to remind all of us -- including me -- of the dangers of seeking power for power's sake.
While I consider myself a “good” Jedi, the record shows that it is all to easy to fall to the Dark Side.
Here's hoping I don't. Or haven't. Or wasn't secretly a Sith lord all along.
Excellent post, WCIP.
You have done well, my young apprentice...
P.S. Don't be surprised if I steal that modified avatar.
P.P.S. Semi-coincidentally, I have adopted the “Empire logo” as the Unofficial DISC Logo, so if you see members sporting them, that may
what that's about. Either a DISC member or a fan of the Empire.
P.P.P.S. Phear meh uber Haibane Army!
