Plainly Put

I wonder what would happen if fifty million Americans just got up and
started for Washington D.C., by any means necessary, arrived there by car,
train, bus, plane, on foot, and went straight to the Capitol, as many
entering the building as could fit, and then just tore every stick of
furniture out of the two chambers and took it outside and burned

Would the people who made this horror get that? Would they get the

No. They'd bring marshmallows and gin, and smile - "we're through with that facade anyway".

It may yet come to that, since it seems our slumber is so deep that not even 9/11 shook us out of it.

I often wonder where that last plane was headed, to the White House or the Capitol, and what it might have meant. It's a vain and unseemly point to ponder, in light of the heroic men and women on that flight, but I do ponder if it might have resulted in a truly over-played hand that would have forced our foolish bluffing to stop.
