Congratulations on your coronation. The Empire is in a dire condition and you seem to have a vision to save it. You can make a good Emperor, and those that love empires will love you.
As for us, whom you labelled “cynics”? Be a just Emperor and we will tolerate you. We will be more than happy to be proven wrong, really. But, rest assured, if we are proven right (and we firmly believe we will) we know the drill.
PS. Oh, and you don’t get a “political honeymoon” with us. For starters, Mr President, it’s time for you to speak your mind about Gaza.
