    Not only won't they permit your entry to the secure part of the airport if you don't complete the process, they won't let you leave the airport period. You belong to them until you complete the security screening one way or another. Hey, we can't have terrorists saying, "I'll just be off for home now, thanks, I'll fly another day!", after the wand detects a screwdriver in their underwear, now can we?

    The whole TSA security theatre thing is a drag. Nobody cares enough to really do anything about it, and as another comment above notes, it's all about the money now. There will be a future generation not that far in the future that will ask of us, "How could they let this happen?". But we are letting it happen, like it or not. We are.
