You may not see it my way, but to me this is about as scary of a video as I could play during the Halloween. Here is a video of a large group of representatives unwilling to do a damn thing to those who attempted and failed to overthrow our government. If this is what you think you want, let me warn you that what you think you want will not be what you get if the Trumpers succeed in overthrowing our government.
History is full of democracies becoming authoritarian governments. The losers are the citizens in every case.
BTW – among those who voted not to stand up when our country was in jeopardy were Mariannette Miller-Meeks (who is often ready to tell about her military connection), Ashley Hinson and Randy Feenstra.
