Ah, the unending sound of unthinking rebel propaganada, like the tide lapping at a beach in its unending nature. Well HB12 if you really want to go through with the whole "Holier than thou" routine be my guest but it has been tried dozens of times before and it gets no one any further forward it simply proves that the same points can be repeated time and time again. The truth is that the rebel terrorists, as I have said many times, were fearful of the order that the Empire was bringing. Not because of any form of oppression or torture such as conjoured from the over-active imagination of HB12 and her massive book of fictious crimes and rebel propaganda but because this order threatened the comfortable existance that these so-called rebels were enjoying at the expense of others. The Empire had good reason for all that it did and yet there is little justification for the billions of lives lost because of the rebels military actions. While the Empire was attempting to prevent conflict and hold together its strong and helpful government the rebels attempted to destroy this by causing chaos and destruction. To allow the rebels to rule for any great period of time is to allow the galaxy to fall to the forces of chaos. The bias that misportrays the Empire must be case aside, too long have people laboured under the impression that the Empire is evil, is it evil to desire a galaxy of peace and tranquility? I think not, but to actively go about the destruction of a government by killing innocents and ultimately creating a civil war that destroys planets, that is certainly not good. Do not listen to the rebels, they seek to sway you with the lure of glory and justice but you must denounce them for what they are, traitors, criminals and malcontents. When a true threat such as the YV they are more incomptent than even the worst of the portrayls of the Empire. A vote for the Empire is a vote for sanity and order. A vote for the rebels is like voting for a big bail of hay. Of course just in case some people missed it I was actually mocking HB12 with that last bit because serious as this debate is, it's impossible to deliver a good speech on the Net, especially in a text-based forum. 10 15 men on a dead man's chest. Is that the actual chest of the man or a chest in the possesion of the deceased?
