I dunno if that was a realistic question or not, but I want to answer best I can anyhow.
Legislators don't do shit but what they're expected to do.
The true rulers have learned plenty from history..
Like, for example, the reason Germany failed at its attempt to take over is because it did not have the whole world in support of its mission.
We, on the other hand, have our own government, along with the rest of the world, cheering our demise.
