Of course, Luke never knew who his mother was, while Leia was well acquainted with her, being a Princess herself.

As for Palpatine dissolving the Senate, of course you must be joking.  Power is seized in increments at a time.  First, they voted him special powers, once he was attacked, he declared a state of emergency. Once one has control of the army, he can do anything.

The thing is that the Governors of the worlds should have had enough collective clout to send their own armies to quell Palpatine before crowning himself emperor.  If not that then at least how they funded the Rebellion.

Back in the 1820s, Andrew Jackson decided to forcefully relocate the Cherokee.  The Supreme Court ruled against him. Jackson simply said, "they have made their ruling, now let them enforce it."

Totally different there was no way colonists were going to enforce "Indian's Rights" back then.  If they declared martial law in DC the rest of the states would sure as hell fund a rebellion, today.

The Cherokee were relocated anyway, with many dying along the way in the "Trail of Tears." 

This happened in America, a democracy.  Just like the Japanese were interred in WWII, and Muslims in secret CIA prisons right now.  For those who choose to ignore history, history will always repeat itself.
