I asked her once how she managed to master diplomacy and espionage in a time when no one wanted to see a woman succeed at either. And she said "Compromise where you can, but where you can't, don't. Even if everyone is telling you that something Wrong is something Right. Even if the whole world is telling you to move, it is your duty to plant yourself like a tree, look them in the eye and say: No. You move."
My friends, there's a revolution coming when mankind discovers who we are, what we can do. Each of us will face a choice: be enslaved or rise up to rule. Choose freely, but know that if you are not with us, then by definition you are against us. So, you can stay and fight for the people who hate and fear you, or you can join me and live like kings... and queens.
I don't think this is a good idea. You can't just break all Ten Commandments in one day. God's gonna hate you. –That's the point. What can be scarier than that? Then tomorrow I'll just repent and both him and Jesus will be back on my side again. –Wow! You're right! Christianity sure is convenient. –Why would God make it any other way?
Most people think that I was named for the state, but it's not true. I was named for a battleship. The USS Arizona. My grandfather was serving on the Arizona when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor and he saved... nineteen men before he drowned. Pretty much everything my father did his whole life was about honoring that sacrifice. I was raised to be a good man in a storm. Raised to love my country, love my family and protect the things I love. When my father, Colonel Daniel Robbins of the United States Marine Corps heard that I was a lesbian, he said he only had one question. I was prepared for; 'how fast can you get the hell out of my house?' But instead... it was, 'are you still who I raised you to be?' My father believes in country the way that you believe in God. And my father is not a man who bends, but he bent for me, because I'm his daughter. I'm a good man in a storm. I love your daughter. And I protect the things I love, not that I need to, she doesn't need it. She's strong and caring and honorable. And she's who you raised her to be.
