You dare lecture to me about bickering and endangering Rome when you are willing to stall the proposal of one of the greatest reforms in military our Republic has ever seen? A reform that our Republic can ill afford to ignore? You dare to lecture me about endangering Rome when you argue that too much debate is in the house? Debate is what drives our Republic, it is what makes our system of government unique from the rest of this sordid world. Debate will root out faults in any proposal until a presentable one, both favorable to people and Republic alike, appears. I have seen far too many foolish articles and proposals pushed through these halls. Proposals that would endanger Rome, limit her powers, and place our people, both within the city and without, in grave danger.
Do not tell me that too much debate in the house will hinder this bill. Let the debates continue to improve it!
Pallas snarled the final words that sounded like the hiss of snakes, and for a brief second, the madness of his twin entered his eyes.
